Willard Mullin’s Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972 – Photoset Preview

“In an era overloaded with angry voices and such involved statistical analysis it makes my head ache, we need Willard Mullin. Rather than shout and scowl, Willard drew playful, appealing images that made you smile. The iconic Brooklyn Bum. The huge but childlike New York Giant. Willard not only was a great artist — he understood that sports are supposed to be fun and joyful. And he made them more so.” — Jim Caple, ESPN.com Senior Writer

“If you want to learn everything worth knowing about baseball history from the 1930s through the ’60s, you’ve got a couple of options. You can read a bunch of dry, fact-filled narratives… or you can see the game come alive in Willard Mullin’s delightful drawings. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted an original Mullin for my wall. Still no luck. But at least this beautiful book should hold me for a while.” — Rob Neyer, National Baseball Editor, SBNation.com, and author of Rob Neyer’s Big Book of Baseball Legends
