Author Series: Stephen Wong

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 1:00pm

Our Author Series brings noted baseball authors to Cooperstown for special lectures and book signings during the summer months. These programs are included with the cost of admission.

On Wednesday, June 21st at 1pm, the Hall of Fame will welcome author Steven Wong to talk about his new book, Game Worn: Baseball Treasures.

Authored by lifelong collector Stephen Wong, Game Worn is a richly illustrated exploration and first-of-its-kind study of the world’s most coveted and precious baseball uniforms worn by major league players during the 20th century. This beautifully illustrated coffee table book features many of the game’s most historically significant uniforms, along with jackets, caps, and other treasured collectibles that tell us as much about the history and soul of America as they do about the game and the players.

The program includes a presentation in the Bullpen Theater, followed by a book signing in the Library Atrium. Presentation at 1 pm. Book signing at 1:30 pm.

For more information call (607) 547-0362.
