Mets Fan costs $29.95. The reason for this is that McFarland,
the leading publisher of baseball books in the world, publishes
extremely high quality books on extremely high quality paper,
usually with particularly durable soft covers. The books have
to be strong enough to be suitable for extended library use. If
you buy this book, it will not crumble or fall apart the way
cheaper books do. The production quality is very high.
One way to look at it is that the book, which I hope will give
you many years of pleasure, costs less than one ticket to Shea in
any seat below the Upper Deck.
It costs less than most people spend on food and drink for one
person at a game.
It costs less than one night's parking and a couple of beers.
I've done everything I can to make it worth your purchase.
