San Diego Padres Book - Gift Details

Heres your chance to relive the Padres finest moments with this Los Angeles Times newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.

Coverage begins in 1969 with both the appointment of Preston Gomez as the Padres first manager, and the teams National League debut against the Houston Astros. Unfortunately, the opening season didnt go well, with an eventual record of 52-110 the worst in the teams history. Nevertheless, the book highlights the Padres best moments thereafter.

The West Division title in 1984 features in plenty of detail, along with the teams subsequent appearance in the World Series, where they lost to the Detroit Tigers. It was the same story 14 years later when the Padres won another West Division title, only to follow it up with defeat in their second World Series, this time to the New York Yankees. Further division titles are also included, in 2005 and 2006.

Game time aside, John Flahertys grand slam against the Florida Marlins in 1996 is inside, along with hometown hero Tony Gwynns 3,000th career hit in 1999. And in 2004, the book shifts its focus to the teams relocation to Petco Park. As for the book itself, it measures in at an impressive 12 ½ x 15 inches and features gold embossing on a brown or black cover.

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.

The second is our unrivalled, premium black leather hardback, frequently chosen for its effortlessly simple design. 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.
