Mike Mandel ♥ Baseball

The year was 1958: the Dodgers left Brooklyn for Los Angeles, the Giants left New York for San Francisco, and Mike Mandel — then eight years old and living in Los Angeles — fell in love with baseball. Mandel has turned to baseball as a subject several times in his career, as in his iconic Baseball-Photographer Trading Cards (1975) and his book SF Giants: An Oral History (1979).
