Just cracked open my new copy of ULTIMATE—The First Five Decades, Vol. II —
Congrats Joe on a beautiful book. Loved the images, writing (great review of the history of the pro leagues)… just loved the whole damn thing. I laughed out loud at the pic of His Holiness holding the plastic -great shot! And a tour de force surprise of surprises… when I turned the last page and the dust jacket popped up… and what’s this I see printed on the back of the dust jacket??? No spoiler alert here but it was awesome! May I recommend only viewing the back side of the dust jacket by starting after the last page on the book, slowly from right to left working your way around the back side of the book for maximal viewing pleasure. I f’ing loved it!

I really love ULTIMATE—The First Five Decades, Vol. I. I learned so much about the Condors which feels weird because I was there in the late 70’s, but I guess I never asked the right questions. I really couldn’t put it down. It’s a great mix of the human stories, the history and the stats. Great job!
