“The Official Major League Baseball Opus” is huge

MLB Opus

Over the summer Major League Baseball released this monster book called “The Official Major League Baseball Opus.” You can read details about it here. The upshot: it’s gigantic, has 1000 pictures in it and costs $3,000.  Buy one for the person you love!

They put one of these in the media room this morning. I’m not sure this pic does it justice. I put my soda can in it for reference but obviously forgot that putting the soda can in the foreground would make it look bigger.  Point remains, however: it’s huge.  Over three feet wide when opened.

If I ever become a Bond villain with a giant study — the kind with a map of the world on the floor so that I may stomp on it as I plan global domination — I will definitely buy one of these and place it on a large obsidian stand someplace prominent.

In other words, it will be just like Selig’s office.

    Now I want to see the pic after you spilled your soda on it and casually walked away like nothing happened.

      This was my very first thought.

    I’d bet Selig couldn’t even lift that thing.

      Selig could use one of these to get his baseball history correct.

      Lifting? That’s what minions are for.

    I’ll take the 26 lb version myself….

    I’ll wait for the Kindle version.

      Yeah but then you won’t wanna carry your Kindle around due to the added weight.

      This thing would melt your Kindle.
