First edition. Signed by both authors without inscriptions. A fine copy in a fine jacket. 2001 Hard Cover. v, 218 pp. Kick back and take a trip in time to meet some of baseballs all-time great personalities, with one of them as your own personal guide. Sleeper Cars and Flannel Uniforms brings baseball legends to life through the eyes of Elden Auker, a submarine-style pitcher in the American League from 1933 through 1942. Auker, one of the last living pitchers to have faced Babe Ruth, teamed with baseball greats Ted Williams, Hank Greenberg, Jimmie Foxx, Charlier Gehringer, and Mickey Cochrane, played against the likes of Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Dizzy Dean, and Bob Feller, and struck up off-the-field friendships with many of them. He takes readers behind the scenes and into the clubhouse for stories like the time Babe Ruth pummeled a sticky-fingered roommate who later went on to have a Hall of Fame career of his own.
