Joe Stoshack may be an awkward kid, but he knows baseball - and baseball cards. Since he was seven, he has been collecting them. So when his mother tells him he can earn five dollars by cleaning out an old lady's attic, Joe dreams of the cards he can buy.

It's long, dusty work, and Joe is down to the last boxes when a piece of cardboard falls to the floor. With a shock, he recognizes the face of Honus Wagner, one of baseball's great early players. It is the most valuable baseball card in the world, and in mint condition! Before Joe can decide whether to tell the old woman or keep the card, he discovers it can carry him through time and space. Soon, he is with Honus in 1909!

Popular children's author Dan Gutman creates a fantastic adventure that is sure to hit a home run with baseball fans of all ages. Johnny Heller's narration adds extra spin to the action. Download and start listening now!

    " Nate kept raving about this book so I read it. I am not too interested in Sports but this is a small book and I found myself wishing the story was a little longer. Honus Wagner was one of the greatest all-around baseball player in history, but the great parts of the book are when he tells his stories. "
