Jim loved baseball and the Tigers. I have the book he describes below in my personal collection. It's a copy of “The Detroit Tigers” by Lieb from 1946.
The book was a gift to Jim from his Mom and she inscribed the inside cover to him in Christmas of '46. I asked him to write some provenance about it. That's what's below.
I'm very proud to own it and I'm especially proud that Jim knew I'd treasure and appreciate it.
from Jim Dec 5 2013:
" The Detroit Tigers, by Fredrick G Lieb

This book was a Christmas present in 1946.

This book traces the years from late 1880's to the World Series of 1945.

I was a great fan in 1945.

I had a Detroit Tiger pennant with the roster included hanging over my bed. My favorite Tigers were Doc Cramer, Rudy York, Roy Cullenbine.

Harry Heilmann became the Tiger's announcer in 1934. He charmed his audience with stories from his days as a player.

At that time team announcers did not travel with the team to away games. They recreated the game from a teletype account.

On one occasion Heilmann broadcast from Flint in the Hotel Durant. I was delighted to attend. The audience gave crowd noises at the urging of Harry.

When the game was finished, he autographed gloves, bats, balls, and in my case, the picture in this book, page 186. I approached with the book open to his picture and he identified the book and praised it."

I am so sorry for your loss. Words are hard to write to show the depth of my feelings for the entire family during this time.
