    "Good Book!" My husband and I bought it on a friend's recommendation and are glad we did! Easy read that wraps up to a satisfing conclusion. We enjoyed trying to identify all of the quotes in the book. A lot of funny 1970's and 1980's references that older people like us will enjoy. We recommend it.

    "What an interesting read!" Very interesting story, even for someone like me who knew nothing about baseball cards before reading the book. It is explained very well, and the book is basically a thriller about a treasure hunt. It just as well could have been an old painting or document, etc. My point is that the story is one that keeps the reader guessing and is not one that can be figured out half way through the book. And, I've always wondered why characters in books don't talk and act like the rest of us? They do in this book! They throw out quotes from famous comedies and songs just like we do when sitting around. I enjoyed being able to read a mystery book and laugh at the same time. (I would say the book is PG-13, no graphic sex or truly harsh language). I gave it a high rating!

    "Great Book!" As a longtime baseball card collector, I was impressed with the accuracy of the information about the Wagner card. The author is clearly someone who wanted to use real facts as the background for a suspense fiction. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even bought a pack of baseball cards and opened it with the dream of finding something valuable inside! The writing and the story flow smoothly, and the end is fun. Definitely worth the $14, especially since a pack of baseball cards costs more than this now.

    "I liked the premise" I liked the premise of someone removing the cards from the factory, since there has never really been any other explanation for how these cards slipped into circulation. Clever use of the Frank Bowerman image next to Wagner's on the only known strip of these cards to give the book a little different angle. All the facts and dates line up with the real ones, which is nice for someone like me who would be confused if they didn't. Essentially two different stories that merge into one nicely at the end. I agree with the previous reviewer who said it was a PG-13 book. Safe for high school and above, but readers under 30 or so may not catch all the old stuff. But all in all, a thumbs up for sure.
