Bestselling Author Jeff Pearlman Joins CSG’s Podcast, Collect This!

Posted on 10/27/2022

One of the world’s most beloved sportswriters discusses his new, acclaimed Bo Jackson biography.

Bo Jackson is a revered figured amongst hardcore sports fans and hardcore sports collectors alike, and nobody is more equipped to discuss the football and baseball legend than Jeff Pearlman, author of The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson, a book that Publishers Weekly said was, “…a standout addition to biographies of hall-of-fame athletes.”

“Jeff is one of my favorite authors, regardless of the genre,” said Collect This! host Alan Goldsher. “He’s written epic books about the Showtime-era Los Angeles Lakers, the Triplets-era Dallas Cowboys and the USFL. And for me, his Walter Payton biography is the gold standard of football bios. Unsurprisingly, his portrait of Bo Jackson is as good as anything he’s published.”

Goldsher was exceptionally pleased that Pearlman’s publisher wanted to share the love. “We’re giving away three copies of Jeff’s book. Make sure you listen to the episode for details on how you can enter the contest. And, of course, make sure you listen to the episode for details about how Bo—who, despite some of his foibles, is a really good dude—almost murdered a teammate.”

New episodes of CSG’s sports card and collectibles podcast Collect This! premiere every Thursday, and can be heard on Apple, Spotify and all major podcast platforms. For more information, write [email protected].
