About this title

Synopsis:

No other book gives you more information on the Giants baseball team!
Giants: Collector's Edition provides the most complete and definitive history of Giants baseball ever produced. The book traces club highlights from its beginnings in New York in 1882 through the thrilling 1993 baseball season. No other book gives you complete Giants statistics, interviews with the club's all-time greats, and complete year-by-year team analysis.
Read about the New York Giants early years under legendary manager John McGraw, who led the club to 10 pennants and three World Series championships, and is given credit for inventing much of the baseball strategy still used today.
Relive the heroics of Christy Mathewson, one of the original members of Baseball's Hall of Fame, who hurled three shutouts in six days during the 1905 World Series, a pitching feat that ranks as one of the greatest of all time.
Recall the 1951 Giants who provided fans with one of baseball's most memorable moments when Bobby Thomson blasted "the shot heard 'round the world" to give the club a dramatic playoff victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The Giants played their last game at New York's fabled Polo Grounds in 1957, then headed west for San Francisco's Seals Stadium where they showcased Willie Mays and a powerful young rookie named Orlando Cepeda. The club gave San Francisco fans something to cheer about in 1962, meeting the New York Yankees in an exciting seven-game World Series.
Giants: Collector's Edition recaps the playoffs of 1987 and the 1989 pennant-winning season when Will Clark and Kevin Mitchell led the Giants back to the World Series.
You'll also read about the Giants remarkable run for the pennant in 1993 when Barry Bonds, San Francisco's newest star, reserved a place for himself among baseball's immortals as he went after his third MVP award.
Giants: Collector's Edition provides interviews with 20 of the Giants all-time greats including Barry Bonds, Will Clark, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal, Orlando Cepeda and numerous others.
Find out why Giants: Collector's Edition is considered the sportswriter's handbook to Giants baseball.
