American Pastime Book Safe with Willie Mays Autographed Picture


I PERSONALLY STOOD IN LINE TO GET THIS AUTOGRAPH over two score ago (I don’t want to make it too easy to figure my age. I guess I could’ve used Roman numerals, XL; that might actually be even more confusing)! It’s not often a book safe comes with its own treasure!

There’s more than one American pastime at play here. At the forefront is obviously baseball. This 50+ year old book features the great Willie Mays in a full color graphic on the front, so I sacrificed the Willie Mays autographed photo I got as a kid for the cavity. It seemed like the right thing to do. The other American pastime is secrecy. It’s necessary, to a point, for national security, but we’ve had a history of overdoing it. That said, book safes make great hiding spots!
