You'll love this because...

Through newspaper headlines printed at the time, you can revisit the most memorable events in Philadelphia Phillies history.

  • A comprehensive newspaper history of the Phillies from 1915 onwards
  • Embossed in gold and bound in a leatherette hardback for free
  • Featuring in-depth articles as originally reported by the Washington Post
  • Each page features 12.5 x 15 inches of premium content
  • Rare Philadelphia Phillies memorabilia

Relive all the greatest moments of the Fightin’ Phils with this fine piece of Phillies memorabilia: the Philadelphia Phillies history book. Made from newspaper headlines of the time, and with coverage beginning in 1915, the year of the franchise’s first National League pennant, this personalized Phillies gift guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Baker Bowl, Connie Mack Stadium, Veterans Stadium and Citizens Bank Park, right up until the present day.

At one point in time, Phillies fans must have thought they were never going to win a World Series. At the start of the 1980s, Philadelphia was experiencing what was at the time the longest championship drought in the history of professional baseball: 97 years since the franchise’s foundation and 70 since the inception of the World Series. In the last five years of the 70s, the Phillies had registered five winning seasons, winning the NL East Division in three of them, but a playoff victory had proven elusive. Indeed, the Phillies had never won one in their history, their only prior forays into the postseason ending with World Series defeats in 1915 and 1950. But in 1980, they finally had their day in the sun, as MVP Mike Schmidt led them to a 4-2 World Series victory over the Royals. The Phillies would go on to win five Division titles in a row between 2007 and 2011, also claiming their second World Series title in 2008.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

I bought this book for my father-in-law's 80th birthday and I'm so pleased with it. I've not yet given him it but I know he will absolutely love it. The prints are so clear considering they're duplicated and the cover is so lovely. I can't wait for his birthday so we can give it to him.

Special gift.

Love this book and the way that facts ate woven into a story with a personal touch. The presentation box makes the book look like an extra special gift. For a child Interested in the stars and planets, this book is great. A bit pricey compared to non personalised books, but worth it to have it contsin a picture and my grandson's name within the text/book. The look on his face was priceless and the added interest due to the personalisation made it a sensational gift.

Heckiew Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 23 Sep 2020

Not quite what I expected!

Content of book has lots of good interesting content although print is quite small but I was very disappointed that the book is about Glasgow Rangers and is bound in maroon (Heart of Mid Lothian colour) Also the book was personalised. This consisted of a printed sticker which wasn’t even stuck down properly. I expected a bit more for the price I paid.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As you have ordered the A4 size book, this is presented in a brown leatherette cover as standard. We do provide all information on the covers within the production page. We do apologise if this was missed.

    As the newspaper that we use is the Daily Mirror, this is an A3 tabloid size. For this paper to fit within an A4 book, the content does have to be shrunk down which does unfortunately make the text smaller than originally printed.

    We do apologise for any inconvenienced caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Colin Shytot Yarde Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 Sep 2020

Should be an Interesting Read

The item was exactly what I thought it would be, the downside was that that newspaper has a strong unpleasant odour, I appreciate that it’s 60 years old but it still smells!
