"...the paperback edition of Josh Wilker’s “Cardboard Gods.” The book, originally released in hardcover by Seven Footer Press, is a family memoir built around Wilker’s childhood baseball-card collection. In a series of short chapters, each headed by a reproduction of a card from his collection, Wilker evokes his coming of age in the nineteen-seventies, discusses bits of baseball arcana, and chronicles his lifelong affection for the Boston Red Sox."
