ABOUT THE BOOKLET SERIES
Each of the hand-numbered and signed 4 ¼” x 5 1/2″ booklets feature an 8 to 24 page story along with a colored art card attached to the inside back cover. These mini-books can be bought individually, thematically or collected as a never-ending set. In addition to the individual booklets, I envision there being themed sets, such as the series I did on Minor League Home Run Champions.
Because these will be handmade in my studio, the production number of each booklet will be low, available on first-come – first serve basis.
Many, but not all, of the stories in The Infinite Baseball Card Set will be made available as a booklet, but I will be doing others that will only be available in print form.
A Season 4 Subscription includes a guaranteed regular 12 issues at a discounted price of $8 each, plus at least one extra Subscriber Special Issue. Each subscription will begin with Booklet Number 030 and will be active through December of 2022. Booklets 1-41 can be purchased as a group as well.
