Game Faces: A Collection of Our Greatest Baseball Portraits
Title | Game Faces: A Collection of Our Greatest Baseball Portraits
Author | The Sporting News
Type | Book
Rating | 10
Notes | Life at The Sporting News began in 1886, and baseball has long been our life blood. Though photographs, especially baseball photographs, did not appear in the publication until 1902, we still gathered them, collected them, cherished them. We look at them now, as we pass them in our work space, as we comb through hundreds of thousands of images filed away in our research center, and the memories always resurface. Game Faces is a glimpse of the game outside the white lines, candid, engaging and revealing images and portraits of players before their prime, in their prime and after their prime. It is a collection of some of the game's greatest names, some of the game's most cherished names, and some of the game's most obscure names. In Game Faces, you'll come face-to-face with a youthful Ted Williams, a brutish Frank Thomas, an aging Babe Ruth. You'll come eye-to-eye with a thoughtful Pedro Martinez, a menacing Randy Johnson, a determined Kerry Wood. Game Faces captures baseball from before-they-were-stars photographs, from Bob Feller to Albert Pujols, to ambassadors of the game, from Tommy Lasorda to Max Patkin to some of the Negro League's greatest stars.

Comments | [07/31/06] This is not only a great book filled with amazing baseball portraits, but is also a great place to learn how to photograph athletes. These pictures are not only interesting because they are of famous people, but also because the photographers found a way to spotlight each players character. This is a great book.

Comments | [11/26/02] This great book combines some of the classic Charles Conlon portraits with terrific contemporary portraits shot mostly by TSN staff photographers Albert Dickson and Robert Seale, whose portrait of Pedro Martinez graces the cover. This book brings out more than just the stars of baseball. There is the wonderful series of portraits of "The Clown Prince of Baseball" Max Patkin, photographed by Albert Dickson in 1996. You will also find a nice series of Negro League stars spread out over 12 pages by Dickson. All in all this book is a must for baseball fans. The simplicity of Conlon's available light black and white work contrasted with the well-lit color portraits by Seale and Dickson make this book something very special. Long-time baseball fan and book critic Michael Zagaris calls "Game Faces" the book of the year.
