Baseball Tarot is totally the coolest! Laura Philips and Mark Lerner have a deep understanding of both baseball and tarot. As a baseball enthusiast of 28 years, and as a tarotist of 17 years, I find their achievement truly amazing and powerful! I now use Baseball Tarot as my primary deck, with great results. The book is warm and wise, and the card illustrations are rendered with a feeling for the game and for Life. My friend Joe, a sports-nut who is not (or *wasn't* :-) a woo-woo type at all, bought the deck and was astounded when he started using it--stunningly accurate readings and insights! And I bet he never would have warmed up to the Rider-Waite (Pamela Smith) deck or any of the others. Baseball is a metaphor-rich game that fits very nicely with the esoteric tradition of tarot. Good job Laura and Mark!!
Note: This deck is not to be confused with the older, and to me far less satisfying, "Tarot of Baseball" published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real home run! 7 Aug 2000
By Vincent J. Lasorso - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The interpretations and graphics on these cards make them a real delight to use. I am actually playing tarot. I have used many different decks but this is by far the clearest for me. This is a great way to introduce sports minded men to this wonderful practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great gift 21 July 2000
By seeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just purchased this set as a his/her wedding shower gift and everybody just loved them. They were passed around from person to person, the ladies and the gents each finding something of value from them. The art work is beautiful, the book very complete, and the card discriptions are really very insightful. They explain things in an easy to understand, applicable to today way. They were a hit. I have about 4 more people I'm going to buy decks for including myself. I doubt anyone would be dissapointed in this set. Certainly unique for a collector of either Tarot cards, or baseball paraphernalia. Thanks :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Take Me Out to the Ballpark 18 Sep 2009
By KC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm not kidding. Take this deck with you to the next home game. Sit there between innings and enjoy the cards and all the wonder that is baseball. I'm a total baseball addict. There is no doubt that, as they say in the introduction, the folks that designed this deck did their (baseball) homework. The art is (gush) WOW. The choices and decisions they made on how to relate tarot to The Great American Pasttime show a true love for both The Game and Tarot. Every time I handle these cards (and they've become my favorite deck) I just get gooseflesh. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making the 7th inning stretch just plain fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Take me out to the old ball game!"/Visionaryprophetdaniel 29 Sep 2007
By D. Guidry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This novel Kit is a good fair play of an old sports institution that uses a theme song based upon "The Old Timers Waltz" music piece for singing "Take Me Out to the old Ball game!"...etc... The cards have a beautiful air-brushed picture on each card all the way through the deck with their own card titles. But, if there any "dislikers" of this Tarot; that's ok..."cause we can shake it off!" A Beginner or an Initiate who knows the game can learn the Tarot quicker (My ex-wife did and enjoyed it immensely learning the Tarot). However, one has to know the standard card titles. The "Fair Play" meanings are a departure from the Rider-Waite-Smith Industry standard. Sports Fans out there should have Tarots done for other major sports such as NFL/AFL;NBA;NHL; and so on- Let's get creative at The Old Ball Game,shall we!??...Blessings...
