Barton, Ralph

Price: $700.00

Description: Newspaper managing editor and city editor.

Comment: Barton's humorous work for a variety of national magazines has a loyal following. This is a great commentary on the state of journalism in our country. I guess that the more things change, the more they stay the same, at least once Spring Training opens.
