New Book Tells Phillies’ Story Through Memorabilia

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

The Philadelphia Phillies are the oldest continuous one-city, one-nickname franchise in sports, and few teams enjoy as rich a history and as deep a connection with their fans. From their first game in 1883 through the team’s back-to-back trips to the World Series in 2008 and 2009, the Phillies have earned a special place in baseball history and cultivated a passionate relationship with fans near and far.

Phillies: An Extraordinary Tradition is a celebration of over 125 years of Phillies baseball. The commemorative book, scheduled for release next week, provides a window through time, showcasing the Phillies’ historic faces and places that comprise their legacy.  More than 400 photos and rare pieces of Phillies memorabilia are used as inserts  in the book including some high quality reproductions of  game tickets, program covers, and collectible art cards, dating back decades. 

MLB.com has more on the book, which gets an assist from collectors who contributed some of the items that were painstakingly reproduced.

  1. Looks like an interesting book. Every team should have one of these come out. Everyday I look at an auction house catalog and it is its own book of history for all major sports. This is why people love to buy and sell collectibles.. it just ties them closer to their favorite teams and players
