The Wax Pack author Brad Balukjian

Is there life after baseball? Starting from this simple question, The Wax Pack ends up with something much bigger and unexpected—a meditation on the loss of innocence and the gift of impermanence, for both Greenville native Brad Balukjian and the former ballplayers he tracked down. To get a truly random sample of players, Balukjian followed this wildly absurd but fun premise: he took a single pack of baseball cards from 1986 (the first year he collected cards), opened it, chewed the nearly thirty-year-old gum inside, and then embarked on a quest to find all the players in the pack. 

Alternately elegiac and uplifting, The Wax Pack is part baseball nostalgia, part road trip travelogue, and all heart, a reminder that greatness is not found in the stats on the backs of baseball cards but in the personal stories of the men on the front of them.

“A wonderful journey that opens into an exploration of sports, nostalgia, American culture, and memory,
The Wax Pack will surprise and engage you. It’s a delight to read and a tribute to the power of
curiosity.”—Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief and The Library Book
