Charles M. Conlon created iconic images of baseball’s
glorious heyday, taking about 30,000 photographs of the sport from 1904
to 1942. In The Big Show: Charles M. Conlon’s Golden Age
Baseball Photographs
, soulful, striking shots of Babe Ruth, Joe
DiMaggio, and hundreds of other major leaguers are paired with captions
meticulously based on contemporary reports and quotes from the players
themselves. In their own words, colorful characters spill the beans
about famous scandals, divulge quirky characteristics, and tell
little-known stories.

In 1993, Abrams’ acclaimed
Baseball’s Golden Age first celebrated Conlon’s
photographs. Research in the Conlon Collection of the Sporting News
later uncovered a cache of brilliant, rare photographs. Showcasing
this windfall, the book—a must-have for baseball fans young and
old—is the definitive collection of America’s best baseball
photographer’s work, offering a moving depiction of past baseball
greats.

Praise for The Big Show:

“With The Big Show: Charles M.
Conlon’s Golden Age Baseball Photographs
, edited by Neal and
Constance McCabe, the photographer gets a well deserved day in the sun.
The more than 200 portraits here capture the soul of the early
game—whether the subjects be stars or . . . something less. The
players have been long forgotten. Conlon’s photographs should not
be.”

class=MsoNormal>“In 1993, [Neal and Constance McCabe] produced
Baseball’s Golden Age: The Photographs of Charles M. Conlon
(Abrams). The book was a revelation in black and white, a time
machine to the era of wooden ballparks, legal spitballs and manual
typewriters . . . Nearly two decades later, Neal and Constance McCabe
have teamed on a worthy and riveting sequel titled The Big Show:
Charles M. Conlon’s Golden Age of Baseball Photographs

(Abrams). The book features more than 200 photos (this time digitally
produced from the glass negatives), as well as Neal McCabe’s
fascinating captions.”

rendered study from the McCabes—the brother/sister writing team
who produced Baseball’s Golden Age—offers a superb
range of photos and intelligent prose, covering the many forgotten men
of baseball, as well as some giants.”
