Penguin Sports Library

pslThe Penguin Sports Library is a rather odd series. It contains books on a variety of sports from baseball to boxing, with no numbering system (it came after the ISBN) and a looser graphical bond than most of Penguin’s branding. This is by no means a complete list, but is every book I can find that is definitely in the series. If you know of others, please e-mail them to me.
