With so many references about so many different hobbies, it can be a bit of a challenge to find the right one to put on your wish list, or to add to the gifts you’re planning to give this holiday season. That’s why we want to offer a few suggestions for your consideration.
– Warman’s® Field Guides : The latest additions to this line of pocket-sized, funky and fun guides include Handbags, PEZ and U.S. Coins & Currency. These affordable little guides easily fit into a tote, bag, jacket pocket and your hands, but there’s nothing small about the details and photos you’ll find inside. These great stocking stuffers are the perfect tools for collectors on the go.
– Indianapolis Motor Speedway: Buckle up, because as you set yourself into the driver’s seat of this book, you won’t want to miss a moment of the rich racing history, characters and Brickyard appeal that you’ll encounter. Celebrate the 100th anniversary of America’s legendary Brickyard in style.
– Standard Catalog of Civil War Firearms: Far more than just weapons used in America’s war – the firearms of the Civil War represent the struggle and sometimes the story of the soldiers who bravely battled. This book provides the “nuts and bolts” details you need for making wise decisions about these respected collectibles, and it gives you a greater understanding of the character of these firearms.
– Legendary Yankee Stadium: They’re back on top – and that only makes their legacy that much sweeter! The modern-day marvels of today’s World Series Champion New York Yankees are undoubtedly impressive, but as this book reveals – theirs is a legacy unlike any other. From the moment you open this beautiful book and take in stories of the power and prowess of players like Gehrig, Mantle, Ruth, DiMaggio and Thurman, it will feel like you are sitting in the stands – almost able to hear the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd.
– Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles 2010 Price Guide: We all collect something – whether we realize it or not. Which means, at one time or another we all can benefit from an “encyclopedia” about antiques & collectibles. Whether it’s figuring out the year grandma’s Depression glass gravy boat was made, determining whether you’d have paid too much or you made a great investment on that piece of Roseville potter, or countless other collecting decisions, this all-inclusive guide is a great resource to have on hand.
– Woodstock Peace, Music & Memories: There’s nothing quite as exciting as a trip back in time. Especially if your destination is Woodstock – talk about taking a trip. Whether you’re looking to reminisce past adventures of your youth, interested in helping a friend celebrate the 40th anniversary of that history-making event, or simply intrigued by the stories of what really went on – this is the book for you. The groovy and inviting design of this scrapbook of memories creates the perfect canvas for the stories and photos of the people who were there!
