Baseball Tarot

[Whole New Ball Game] [Four of Balls] Baseball has often been called a metaphor for life. In the Baseball Tarot, Mark Lerner and Laura Philips blend the lore and wisdom of baseball with the traditional tarot. The major arcana includes the archetypcal figures and events of the sport. The minors show the ups and downs that occur during play. Each minor has a keyword meaning taken from some aspect of the game. The suits are the bats, mitts, balls and bases. The pages and knights are cards eleven and twelve. The queens are coaches, and the kings, MVPs. The players shown are professionals and amateurs of all ages enjoying the game. This deck only comes as a set with the excellent Baseball Tarot Book by Lerner & Philips. The artist is Dan Gardiner.
