From the first pitch to the final home run of the season, nothing delighted the baseball buff more than to root, root, root for his home team. This personalized book retraces the history of your recipient's favorite Major League Baseball team through beautifully reprinted coverage from The New York Times's archives. As they flip through historic pages, they'll go back to their team's glory days, relive the most newsworthy games, and get to know the all-star sluggers. This winning collection of full-size facsimiles is preserved in a handsome library binding and can be embossed with your recipient's name for a personal touch. Made in Williston, Vermont.

Notes
Please note: cover color is determined according to team colors.

The New York Times Custom Sports Book goes back to each team's early years (in some cases to when the team was created!). All books are at least 70 pages in length.

These pages are not standard newspaper dimensions, therefore, the type is shrunk slightly to fit a more convenient, book-sized trim. Certain years/pages are reprinted from microfilm and font size may be reduced. New pages may not be available for inclusion for up to 6 months after the date of print. Missing pages may be the result of a newspaper strike or a lack of relevant information on the front page for that date.

      Although I have not given this to my brother yet, so I don't know his reaction yet, who is a huge White Sox fan, I showed it to my dad who said he wished he had one for the Twins! When I received the package I was very pleased, it came much faster than I had expected, and it looks very nice. I think this is a good coffee table book for any baseball fan.

          I bought this as a thank you gift for a friend who helped do some work on my home. He's a huge Cubs fan, and this was the perfect gift! The front cover has the recipient's name on it, which just gives a wonderfully personal touch. He was so overwhelmed with gratefulness and couldn't put the book down. A wonderful gift for any lover of a particular sports team!

                        This gift arrived a bit ahead of schedule which was perfectly in time with family festivities for a grandparent's birthday. He loved the idea of the book and has enjoyed pouring over the stories within. Would definitely buy again.
