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.

Purchased this for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift as he is a big baseball fan. I was a little skeptical about the gift because of his favorite team: Toronto Blue Jays. I was told that it would be filled with news paper articles about that team. Instead I received a book filled with basketball, football, other baseball teams, and very few Toronto Blue Jay articles. Worse part I had to show him it early, he was also confused by the context as it had very little to do with what it appeared I had ordered. Will never ever be buying from this site again. Mislead by their customer service representatives who made me think I'd be getting an awesome gift. This was not at all what I was expecting. Very disappointed and even worse can't return it as it is customized with his name on the front.

    Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Baseball Book:

    My dad loved this gift! He enjoyed seeing the newspapers from his childhood covering his favorite team. The only con was the type is a little small and he had difficulty reading some of the pages even with his reading glasses. He is the type of person who will read every sentence so it's something to consider with an older reader.

            A great gift! I've had many positive experiences with Uncommon Goods - products and delivery. Disappointed with this book only because it doesn't come with a magnifier per other reviews.

              I gave the book to my grandfather for Christmas 2017and he absolutely loved it. Because it is a customizable book, the latest article in the book was from November 2017. He was very excited to go through the book and see all of the articles

                    My husband is going to love this history of the Cardinals. He's been a fan since he was a little boy and he's 87 years old now. The NYT covers many years of Cardinal sports. This is a perfect for a hard to buy for sports fan.
