Rare San Diego Padres memorabilia available in a gift box to protect your book as time goes by
Relive all the greatest moments in the Friars’ history through newspaper headlines of the time with this personalized San Diego Padres book. With coverage beginning in 1969, the year of the franchise’s debut season, this fine piece of Padres memorabilia guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Qualcomm Stadium and Petco Park, right up until the present day.
Founded in 1969, Padres fans would have to wait ten years for a winning season. Their first foray into the playoffs would come six years later, with the team winning the NL West Division and the pennant, before eventually succumbing to the Detroit Tigers in the World Series. Manager of the Year Bruce Bochy would led the Padres back to the biggest stage in baseball in 1998 following a 98-64 season, the best in their history, but the Friars would again fall at the final hurdle, this time to the Yankees. After the Chargers of the NFL left for Los Angeles in 2017, the Padres became the only major sports team in San Diego, and also the only MLB to not share its city with another professional sports franchise.
Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Very disappointed with my first experience purchasing from In The Book. Both books I ordered arrived with issues - one was bound incorrectly so the spine was bent, whilst the other contained very poor quality illustrations. Even the front cover illustration (Alice in Wonderland) was blurry. Throughout the pages, printing lines are visible and most images just look pale and blurry like a bad quality VHS. Customer service replied very quickly and were helpful - sending out immediate replacements no issue. One book is fine, the other is just as poor quality so I've requested a refund as it is not gift-worthy. Hopefully this will be actioned just as quickly. A shame and I certainly wouldn't recommend.
