The Newest Search Adventure Book with Joe Journeyman and all 32 NFL Teams

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

Joe Journeyman is the only player to have played for all 32 NFL professional teams, or so it goes in his adventures books. I think it is a fun and creative twist between “Where’s Waldo” and “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”

Joe Journeyman

Kids and adults who love to search can enjoy a unique story of friendship and football in a new search adventure book about the spectacular tale of Joe Journeyman, the only player to play for all 32 NFL teams. Joe Journeyman Volume 1 shares the creative, fictional story of Joe Journeyman, as he and his best friends travel from one NFL team to the next.

The book is large, colorful and has tons of glossy graphics. It depicts various landmarks and hot-spots of each and every city. It is fun to scour and scan each page trying to find Joe Journeyman and his playbook. The book has amazing true-to-life graphics. My personal favorite is the photo of the “Great American Tower” in the Cincinnati Bengals page, as this is where I actually work. Joe Journeyman

Within each of the 16 NFL cities featured in Joe Journeyman Volume 1, readers are challenged to find:

  • Joe Journeyman
  • Joe’s playbook
  • Joe’s friends (Touchdown Ted the Turtle, Super Fan Franny the Fox, End Zone Ernie the Elephant, Leon the Lion and Pom Pom Polly, as well as his nemesis Copy Cat Carl)
  • …plus all of the wild and wacky things along the way (24 items per team)


Joe Journeyman Volume 1 is a story of friendship created and inspired by two childhood friends, author David Bazzoni and artist Jed Bruce, who reconnected by chance after 13 years. At the time, Bruce was a struggling artist who was desperate to find an opportunity to share his art. Bazzoni, president of consumer products company IDNA Brands, hired Bruce on the spot with no formal plans for what he would be doing on a daily basis. Creating Joe Journeyman has allowed Bruce to live out his dream.


Joe Journeyman Volume 1 is a classic tale of good prevailing over evil brought to life through a unique blend of illustration and fine art. Each hand drawn, two-page artwork spread within this book is dedicated to one stop on Joe Journeyman’s adventure and chronicles his travels in the team’s JourneyVan with his best friends and supporters.

“Joe Journeyman changed my life, and I hope in some crazy way he changes yours too,” said Bruce, the mastermind behind Joe Journeyman’s original artwork. “I guess I am proof that great things will happen if you just don’t quit pursuing your dream.”

In addition to seeking out Joe’s playbook, readers are also tasked with finding literal translations to everyday expressions that will make them laugh out loud. Readers, for example, are challenged to find “cow tipping,” which in this case is an illustration of a cow placing a dollar into a tip jar, or “leap frog,” which is a football fan leaping over a frog. There are also illustrations of city-specific landmarks, such as the “Freedom Trail” in Boston and the “Inner Harbor” in downtown Baltimore.

One admiral and noteworthy point is that Joe Journeyman donates 10% of all net profits to support Joe’s Kids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit pediatric rehabilitation facility in Warsaw, IN., serving children with special needs. In addition to supporting Joe’s Kids, a portion of the profits from Joe Journeyman will also benefit local children’s hospitals throughout the country.2015-11-07 12.44.02Joe Journeyman Volume 1 features 16 NFL teams, including the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, Washington Redskins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings.
