Rare Houston Astros memorabilia
Relive all the greatest moments in Astros history through newspaper headlines of the time with this personalized Houston Astros book. With coverage beginning in 1962, the year of the franchise’s debut season, this fine piece of Houston Astros memorabilia guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Colt Stadium, the Astrodome and Minute Maid Park, right up until the present day.
Founded in 1962 as the Houston Colt .45s, the Astros would wait over forty years for their (and the state of Texas’s) first World Series. It came in 2005, against the Chicago White Sox, a series marred by controversy, as MLB commissioner Bud Selig order the games in Houston to be played with the stadium roof open, which many believed nulled the enthusing effect of the Astros fans. Chicago would win the series 4-0. Twelve years later, though, the Astros would finally have their day in the sun. After finishing the season with over 100 wins for only the second time in their history, they went on to defeat the LA Dodgers in a tightly-fought 4-3 series, claiming their first ever World Series title.
Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Great for rugby fans
One of my clients, a keen follower of Wales rugby, had recently had a major operation.
To help cheer him up, I sent the history of Wales rugby to him and he was delighted with it.
