Baltimore Orioles Book - Gift Details
Relive the Orioles’ most memorable moments with this Washington Post newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Coverage begins in September 1953 with the St Louis Browns relocation to Baltimore, and the new Orioles victory over the Chicago White Sox in April 1954. Thereafter, the team’s greatest victories all feature, thus creating a fantastic reportage history for any diehard Orioles fan.
Also included in the coverage are the numerous divisional and Pennant titles, as well as extensive coverage of the glory years which culminated in the three World Series-winning seasons of 1966, 1970 and 1983. The 1970 accomplishment was especially impressive – coming at the end of a year that included 108 wins, Boog Powell being named MVP and an outstanding five-game final win over the Big Red Machine of the Cincinnati Reds.
More recently, Lou Gehring’s record of 2,130 consecutive games was finally broken by Cal Ripkin in 1995 – a feat that features in the book. Also included are the playoff years of ’96 and ’97, as well as the 9-6 victory over the New York Yankees in 2012.
As for the book itself, it measures in at an impressive 12.5 x 15”, with the choice of two striking editions – both gold-embossed for free. The first is our original burnt sienna cover, made with an antique-style coat; beautifully contrasting the book’s originally reported black and white content.

Not only does this leather book include the black and white re-mastered content, this edition features full-color pages from 2006 onwards, merging your team’s definitive history into a precious contemporary keepsake.
