St Louis Cardinals Book - Gift Details
Relive the Cardinals’ most memorable moments with this Washington Post newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Coverage begins in September 1926 and quickly goes on to detail October’s World Series victory over the Yankees. 1931’s triumph also features, along with 1934’s, when rioting fans couldn’t prevent the Detriot Tigers being beaten by the Cardinals’ famed ‘Gashouse Gang’.
Thereafter, the team’s greatest victories are all included, thus creating a fantastic reportage history for any diehard Cardinals fan. Included in the coverage are the three World Series wins during the 1940s, the latter of which – in 1946 – was sealed with a dramatic deciding victory over the Boston Red Sox.
Then there’s three more World Series wins, in 1964, 1967 and 1982, before the more recent successes of 2006 and 2011 take centre stage. 2006’s triumph over the Tigers was the side’s first World Series in 24 years and was secured thanks in no small part to the huge hitting of David Eckstein. Five years later, it was David Freese who helped down the Texas Rangers as the Cards won their 11th title.
