New reward!

A limited number of backers at the $49 level can receive an 8x11 photo of Minnie Minoso with Bill Veeck, signed by Minoso! Only five available! 

We are going strong with 8 days to go! Thanks to all our backers, and to those who have shared our project with your friends and family. 

If you didn't catch it, there was an excellent print and video profile of the project by John Owens in the Chicago Tribune last week:
