Casey: The Life and Legend of Charles Dillon Stengel

Englewood Cliffs: Prentice-Hall, (1967).

Price: $400.00

Hardcover. First edition. Introduction by Bill Veeck. Fine in about fine dustwrapper with a small ink squiggle on front wrap that we think are Bill Veeck's initials. Inscribed by the author to former White Sox owner, author, and provocateur Bill Veeck, who wrote the introduction: "To Bill Veeck – who was there, and who contributed so much to the life and legend of Casey Stengel and to this account of it. Gratefully – Joe Durso." One of several good biographies of the former Toledo Mud Hen and mentor of Yogi Berra in their joint effort to explore the plasticity of language.
