A new magazine hit the newsstand this week, called Baseball – History & Art. It’s part history, part art, and part collecting. This first issue, Summer 2015, is over 70 pages printed on a high quality stock and includes a insert in the front cover of Ty Cobb. The front cover teases stories on “Black Stars Exhibit” “Forbes Field & Honus Wagner” along with Inside Market Info, Breaking News, Auction News, and Making Art Matter. As you thumb threw it, the Art title is there for a reason, and in these 70 plus pages are some great looking pictures of America’s Pastime. The cover price is $9.95 in the U.S. and $12.95 for Canada.
