Description

“And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout; But there’s no joy in Mudville-mighty Casey has struck out.” Those lines have echoed through the decades, the final stanza of a poem published pseudonymously within the June 3, 1888, issue of the San Francisco Examiner. Its writer would somewhat have seen it forgotten. As a substitute, Ernest Thayer’s poem has taken a well-deserved place as a long lasting icon of Americana. Christopher Bing’s magnificent version of this immortal ballad of the flailing 19th-century baseball star is rendered as although it had been newly came upon in a hundred-year-old scrap. Bing seamlessly weaves real and trompe l’oeil reproductions of artifacts-period baseball cards, tickets, advertisements, and a host of other memorabilia into the narrative to provide a wealthy and multifaceted panorama of a bygone era. A to be pored over by children, treasured by aficionados of the sport-and given as a gift to all ages: a tragi-comic celebration of heroism and of a golden era of sport.
