Hardcover, 209 pages ($35 / Simon & Schuster)

With a foreword by legendary Baltimore Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson, this lavishly illustrated collection of color photos includes nearly 200 totems from among the treasures in the sport’s museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., including the rarest baseball card of them all; announcer Harry Caray’s eyeglasses; the paperwork that sealed the transfer of Babe Ruth from the Red Sox to the Yankees; the bat used by Ted Williams for his 521st (and final) home run; and many other items, documents and artifacts in what might just be the coolest roundup of sports souvenirs ever.
