A good, solid, hard cover with minor shelf wear, but a 1" piece broken from the rear cover corner; hinges and binding solid, paper clean but yellowed and becoming fragile. Every other page is a black and white photo of the team and the place. A wonderful small piece on a by-gone era of fast talking heros and daring do.
