A valuable baseball card, a sinking ship, a distant planet, and vampire tales fill this fast-paced time-travel story. When an advertisement for a TimeQuest 2 comic with a new no-change feature suddenly attracts Paul and Brian, their only question is this: How do you mail something to the year 100,000? As soon as they figure that out, they head out on a quest to replace a mint condition Honus Wagner Baseball Card that Brian accidentally destroyed when he was younger. To find it, all they have to do is warp the space-time continuum to the year 1912, board the Titanic, and find Brian's Great Uncle Sean. No problem. But the boys soon find themselves in some sticky situations. As the TimeQuest 2 Comic magically chronicles their travels, the boys discover that their actions have doomed all of humankind. Now they must travel to the distant reaches of the universe and the darkest Transylvania to set things right again. Can they fix the world and make it home with the million-dollar baseball card before it's too late?

I really enjoyed reading THE BASEBALL CARD KID. It was great to travel to the past and the future with these interesting characters.This book kept me wanting to know more and more. The story is amazing; you just never know what will happen next! I especially enjoyed Brian and Paul's trips back in time to Transylvania and their adventures aboard the Titanic. The trips to the future were also very exciting. Everyone will love this book as much as I did. I can't wait to read Adam Osterweil's other adventure stories.
