A note from "WILD CARDS" author Ken Berris

As all of us who have watched baseball and dreamed of seeing Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Ty Cobb, and Lou Gehrig on the same field as the All Stars of today, I had a thought. What if there was a game between the All-Stars of the past and the All-Stars of today? I let that idea germinate with my personal philosophical questions about the afterlife.

Imagine if one day legends of the past were to show up alive again, reincarnated through their old baseball cards. And what if their destinies were to fall into the hands of a young boy, whose dream it was to see a game between the idols of the past and the current major league stars.

Wild Cards is a book full of hope, poignancy and exciting action. With a cast of unforgettable characters, and a good dose of humor and suspense, it investigates the mysteries of faith, fatherhood, reincarnation, and baseball. It explores the concept that even baseball can play a hand in our destinies. It's the perfect gift for the young at heart.
