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.

My dad is very difficult to shop for, he has everything, & wants nothing. I saw this book and knew it would be the perfect unique gift. He loves it. He commented to me about the beautiful cover, amazing pictures, & all around excellent quality, he always notices details like that. It is a book he Will keep looking at, and continue reading, & it brings back memories since he's been a fan for decades.

Had such high expectations for this (my husband is a football history nerd and lifelong Eagles fan). Unfortunately, the volume is quite slim and is missing a number of major stories you'd expect in a history of the Philadelphia Eagles (e.g. the "Miracle in the Meadowlands" and the "fog bowl", no stories from 1966-77, etc). A cool concept, but the execution of the Eagles volume leaves much to be desired. As the product was customized I cannot return it, so it will gather dust.

          Some stuff was missing likely because the history is too rich for just 70 pages but the stuff that was there was great, readable, and my boyfriend loved it he's been going through it, his parents thought it was so cool too, definitely a great gift for a sports or history fan

          I got this as a gift, for the new england patriots one, and I was going through to make sure recent evens were covered, and it seems like some pages were missing, it jumps randomly over a few years, it was kinda dissapointing because those were the pages I was hoping would be there for their sentimental significance to our lives, but the quality of text was better then I expected, was able to read everything even early articles fairly easily

            Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Football Book:

            I thought this book presented well on the onset, but you need a magnifier to read it. Also, stating it was custom made did not excuse Year 2016 and 2017 from being included... especially in a championship year for this team! Very disappointing. Ended in 2015!

                Very interesting to look at and go through. Made a perfect gift for an avid fan. The articles truly did span the life of the team. The product discription was correct in saying that the microfilm shrunk some of the articles so some may need slight assistance reading the small print, especially for older readers. Would definetly get again!

                      the print quality was not good at all. This was a gift for my father, it is very hard for him to read. The quality of the print (copied articles) is very poor. The amount of money charged for this item, it should have been a higher quality.
