Rare San Diego Padres memorabilia
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.

To truly make this Padres book a timeless gift, you can include the individual’s name and a message printed on a certificate on the opening title page. Their name will also be embossed on the front cover free of charge. The hardback cover is bound in premium leatherette.

The book was amazing (history of Leeds FC, brilliant. Unfortunately was due to arrive 7-13 and didn’t arrive until two days later. I had actually rung them to ask if could arrive by 11th. They were apologetic and refunded postage. Good gesture but present didn’t arrive for birthday.

Didn’t get the product
I ordered the book over two weeks ago and told it had been despatched and yet have had nothing delivered nor any communication from in the book regarding my complaint. No one sad boy is without a birthday present

I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for a christening
I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for my grandson’s christening. Having only a week until the event I paid £6.99 for priority delivery. They gave a due date of 7-8th January, which was 2-3 days in advance of when I needed the book. However, after waiting in both days, the book didn’t arrive. On 8th January I emailed to ask when I was likely to receive the book, to date I haven’t received any reply (it’s now 10 days later). The book eventually arrived 10th January (having been posted on 9th) but I didn’t receive it as we had already left to travel for the christening. I emailed again asking if I could have a refund of the priority delivery charge since the book hadn’t even been posted until after the stated arrival date. I received no reply. Whilst the product is ok the service has fallen well below expected standards and I was left embarrassed with no gift for such a special event.
The book is of good quality

The making of a good company is how they handle customers when things go wrong.Had there been ANY quality control before orders are dispatched my problem would have been spotted.
Such a shame customer goodwill is not something this company offers.
