9781558593794: The Giants: Memories and Memorabilia from a Century of Baseball

For over a century, the Giants have dominated baseball like few other teams, commanding a loyalty from both fans and collectors that rivals the team's own record. For longer than anyone can remember, the Giants have been just that. In both San Francisco and New York they have loomed large on the field, dwarfing their opponents from 1885 onwards. With Christy Mathewson and John McGraw, Bill Terry and Carl Hubbell, the great Willie Mays, the dazzling Orlando Cepada, Johnny Mize, and Juan Marichal, the Giants have long been loaded with talent and brains, and they've got 16 pennants to prove it. Stories and the memorabilia are described here - the before and the after, the players and the games, 1905 World Series programmes and McGraw autographed balls, Willie Mays's spikes, Willie McCovey's jacket, and the tickets to the first game at Candlestick.

Review:

Whether in New York or San Francisco the Giants have never ceased to dazzle. Bobby Thompson's "shot heard 'round the world" and "the catch" by Willie Mays will forever be on highlight reels and the names of John McGraw, Christy Mathewson, and Willie McCovey will endure in the hall of fame. Memorabilia from all the great Giant moments has been assembled into this enthralling tribute to a giant of a team.-- D.G. McDonald
