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.

The gift was admired and envied by everyone.

For a great White Sox fan who has everything, this was so admired and appreciated. Not only was this item perfect, I have moved "uncommongoods" to the top of my list!

Had we known the type would be so small, we probably wouldn't have purchased this product / book / gift. A reader needs a magnifying glass to read the type.

          Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Baseball Book:

          Definitely a good gift for the baseball lover who already has something. But the font was pretty small and hard to read. You might need to purchase a magnifying glass if you're planning to actually read it, but it's still a cool thing to put on the coffee table and flip through now and then. It would be really cool if you could choose the publication it came from as well as the baseball team.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was expected to take 2-3 weeks so because of that I figured it would not arrive in time for Father's day and instead decided it would be my father's birthday gift. It actually arrived within 3 days so although I was excited it came so quickly, I could not end up using it for Fathers day because I did not get it shipped to his house like I had originally planned if the estimated shipping was going to be shorter
