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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Football Book:

    The idea of this book is so great, and it would be such a great Christmas gift for my boyfriend, since he is obsessed with his football team. I did have a few things that were very disappointing: 1.) There is a large and noticable scratch across the name of the football team 2.) The articles stop at September 2011. It's 2017 and I would think that there would be other articles that fill the last 6+ years.

                  I love how nicely finished this book is, especially with the name embedding on the front page. It has a classy look and is FULL of articles dating back to the 70's. Lots of pages, lots of great news. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The book was not expected to ship until August 28th, but I received it on August 25th! Way faster than I expected.

                      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
