So anyways.......... I am given 1 IAABO book every year, rather than the 3 Fed books.

So... what colour is the front of the Fed-published rulebook?

My 1892 Manual of Basketball published by Dr. Naismith has a gray cover. I asked him about it when he gave it to me and he said the publisher had a bunch of gray paper stock left over from some other job so he got it cheap.
