Default Brian's book

I just wanted to add my own recommendation for this book. I bought it a little over a year ago, and I've been reading it constantly.
I grew up at the tail end of the period covered, and have great memories of pulling cards out of Frosted Flakes and Danish Go-Rounds, and buying Milk Duds and Bazooka Gum to add cards to my collection.
Since buying this book, I have added examples of many of the sets Brian talks about. I have obtained some Shirriff hockey coins, and my first Beehive photo is on it's way from the Great White North.
I was also the winner of the two different Roberto Clemente Dexter Press (Coca Cola) Premiums in Al's latest LOTG auction.
Prior to the book, I was lucky enough to get a Home Run Derby card from Chris (bestdj777), right here on Net54.
I can't recommend this book enough for anyone with an interest in baseball and baseball cards from the 50's to the 70's.
Always collecting Pirates from the early 1900's thru the early 70's, and any Steelers and Penguins items that catch my eye.

Working on the 1964 Topps Giants and 1967 Topps baseball sets and looking for a 1970's Spalding Advisory Staff photo of Richie Hebner.

Default If you own NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, do the bookmarks show on your computer screen?

When I was at my brother-in-law's home recently, he had my book up on his computer screen. I was horrified to see the bookmarks did not automatically show on his screen. The bookmarks are important, in that they allow you to click on any chapter or entity of the book you wish to see---immediately. When he adjusted his computer screen settings, the bookmarks appeared.

So, as a way of reaching out to any of my potentially frustrated customers, if the bookmarks are not appearing on your screen at the same time as the book, please adjust your settings. Your computer may not use the terminology "Bookmarks", so try a listed term that's akin to it.

I sincerely apologize for any frustration I may have caused any of my customers.

Have a swell day. ---Brian Powell
