The Baseball Card Adventures is a novel series is written by Dan Gutman. So far there are 11 books in the series. The most recent book, Ted & Me, was released on March 20, 2012. The 12th and final book, Bobby & Me, is expected to be released in March 2014. The books feature a boy, Joe Stoshack, who can travel through time when he touches old baseball cards. When he holds a baseball card he is transported to the year that card was made and somewhere near the ballplayer on the card. Later he discovers that this power also works on very old photographs. He tries to use this power wisely, and he changes history several times, but it is always something different from his original goal.
The novels are typically illustrated with black and white photos from the time period in which the story takes place. For an example, when Jackie Robinson steals second base in Jackie & Me, a real photo of Jackie Robinson stealing a base is pictured. Occasionally they will also be illustrated with pictures taken exclusively for the book.
