I want a Gillette pocket sized Baseball Encyclopedia

If you have the MLB Channel on your cable or satellite provider, do yourself a favor and watch the Don Larson perfect game they are showing. I think they are replaying it several times tonight. If you can't watch it, TiVo it or tape it or have your kid draw pictures of the game that you can look over later. This is Baseball Nirvana. Mel Allen & Vin Scully calling the game. About 147 Hall of Famers between the two rosters. Bob Costas interviewing Yogi and Don. The cheezy Gilette commercials are icing on the cake. If they keep showing stuff like this I'm not going to get a whole lot done this year.

HOLY CRAP! Cardboard Icons has one of 'em!!!

Isn't this new channel fantastic?

I'm pulling for the Dodgers to pull it out this time!

Me too. And it's free with the $1.00 Gilette Blue-Blade dispenser with handy travel case!

It was great to see that. I can't believe how different baseball broadcasting was back then.

You're not going to believe this,but I HAVE A 1956 GILLETE POCKET BASEBALL ENCYCLOPEDIA. I got it at a flea market in July for a buck. I'll scan / take a pic of it later ...
