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.

This book is similar to the book on the American League entitled Heart of the Game in that it includes the paintings of Andy Jurinko that resemble the Topps baseball cards of 1953. The poses of the players are not the same as the 1953 Topps, but the paintings appear to be the same. In other words they are fantastic.

The book is divided into years from 1946 through 1960 with a appendix of the statistics of the fifteen year period in addition to an appendix of year-by-year statistics. All of the photos are in color and range in size from full page to portraits of players the size of 1950 Bowmans baseball cards. Some pages have two larger photos per page with a written text of the player included underneath. Naturally all sixteen major league teams are represented. Also included are photos of players who stared in each year. Each chapter is entitled with what is considered to be the number one highlight in each year.

You can test how much of a fan you are of this time period by asking yourself how many of the numerous photos you can recognize on the dust jacket. If you are fortunate to remember this golden era of baseball this book is an absolute must for you. For those too young to remember when these players ruled the baseball world I can only sympathize. Age has its advantages.

FONDLY REMEMBERED..THE GREAT ANDY JURINKO

Sadly, Andy passed away in February 2011 about a year before his last book "Golden Boys" was published. Andy was a tremendously talented artist and a better human being. Gentle, thoughtful and enthusiastic at all times he hid his cancer diagnosis from many of his oldest friends and news of his death came as a genuine shock. My last conversation with him was a call he'd made to me just before the holidays in 2010 both to congratulate me on the improbable World Series triumph by my Giants as well as to inform me that his book, replete with writing by the estimable Chris Jennison, was very much in the publishing pipeline.

Andy's final masterpiece is nothing short of an illuminated manuscript documenting the glory of the post-war, post-integration world of major league baseball. One marvels at the fact he painted hundreds of portraits and action scenes. His ballpark canvases, recognized as the best ever painted, are the proverbial icing on the cake.

Andy captured the substance and soul of the game as well as any artist or writer.

His book deserves to be on the shelf of any fan of baseball, American art, 20th century history and popular culture. It is a treasure.

If you are a fan of 40s-60s baseball, this is a treasure of a book. It totally reminds readers of 50s baseball cards, and the art work is outstanding. The book emphasizes the art, which is its purpose, so there is not a great deal of writing, but it is well done, and it also contains some statistics with the index. My copy was priced at around five dollars, amazing for a beautiful large hardback. It is a total bargain and a great trip back in time.

Nice art work for baseball in the 40's to 1960. Relaxing to sit back and read about some great times back in the day, and the pictures help just imagining what the heyday must have been like. When life was slower and seemed more fun, not having 18 millionaires on the field complaining about their pay, or having strikes.

Jurinko was THE baseball fine art painter of the last 30 years. Died too young. His art lives on.

I purchased this for my husband (and daughter) because it tells about
24 of the best baseball players - from a long time ago to the present.
It is the perfect book to "peruse" as you do not need to read it in
order or all at one sitting.
Andromajurus
This is a wonderful book of Andy Jurinko's art work rememberance of his and others boyhood diamond hero's.
I thank his wife and her friends who completed this work and making it available to a wide audience.
fantastic
