New York Giants: The Complete Illustrated History

Purchased in 1925 for $500 by bookmaker and businessman Tim Mara, the New York Giants were New York City’s introduction to professional football. The National Football League was a mere five years old---and for the near-century since, the history of football, the city, and the Giants has been inextricably linked. This thorough and thoroughly entertaining illustrated chronicle of the New York Giants football team tells the full story of the seasons, players, coaches, teams, and moments that have made history decade after decade.

From the early years as an upstart sport in a big city heading into financial chaos, to the team’s triumph in the 1930s (including 1934’s famous “Sneakers Game” against the Chicago Bears); its return to glory in the 1950s behind the talents of Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, and Roosevelt Brown; and its pair of championship seasons in 1986 and 1990---these are the New York Giants, moment by colorful moment, right up to their upset victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Crammed with player statistics and team records, and brilliantly illustrated with vintage and up-to-the-minute photographs, the book is a fitting celebration of a team whose name is synonymous with football in America.
