Cardboard Gods ($19) is Josh Wilker's memoir, a quite brilliant writer who marked all the important stages of his life through his collection of baseball cards. It also perfectly captures what is is like to grow up with an obsession for baseball cards and explores what it is like to be a fanatic of the game. We are taken on a journey where we get to know not only Josh but also his family and friends and get to hear his classic observations regarding the central artifacts of his life; those baseball cards. A great book that all card collectors will empathize with.

West By West ($10) is about 'Mr Clutch', one of the towering figures in basketball history who mesmerized both his fans and his opponents. He was the coach behind the resurgence of the Lakers back in the 1970's and the man who played a major part in bringing Showtime to the LA by creating a championship winning force to be reckoned with that still continues today. For the first time Lakers legend Jerry West tells his own story from his tough West Virginia childhood to his outstanding college success that led to his four decade career with the Lakers. Whether you are a basketball fan or not this is an incredible human story.
There are two actors many American men have aspired to over the years, one is Robert De Niro and the second, Al Pacino, the star of this movie. Scar Face ($10) tells the story of a Cuban immigrant in Miami whose greed outweighs his sense as he tries to take over a drugs cartel. Directed by Brian de Palma and with a supporting cast including Michelle Pfeiffer and Stephen Bauer, this is a movie that fully deserves to be in the iconic category. Even though it is now 31 years since its release, its great story and cast make it a movie that you'll never tire of watching.
