About The Book

Renowned artist Andy Jurinko believed the golden age of baseball was 1946-1960, an era that, not coincidentally, coincided with his childhood. It was a time that welcomed such legendary stars as Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams, and Henry Aaron into the national consciousness, a fifteen year stretch marked by Robinson’s breaking of the color barrier in 1947 and by ten Yankee championships. Jurinko spent twenty years creating more than 600 portraits of the colorful characters and stadiums that typify this era, all collected here for the first time in Golden Boys. With illuminating text by sportswriter Christopher Jennison, Golden Boys is the definitive artistic portrait of a remarkable time in American sports history.
