Attention Holiday shoppers. I have the perfect gift to put on your list. I guarantee you have someone in your life who would appreciate this beautiful book.
Yankee stadium is being looked at in a whole new light. The only official retrospective of the stadium that is licensed by the New York Yankees is in stores now. 150 photos, many never before published give a complete tribute to the iconic landmark that is as legendary as the players that call it home.
Authors Mark Vancil and Alfred Santasiere III not only show us the wonderful photos - but also bring such a human touch to the story with first person accounts of the stadium from famous names such as President Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney, and Muhammad Ali. Major baseball names Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Yogi Berra also pay tribute.
If not for your dad, mom, husband, boyfriend, there must be a brother or Uncle who would love it! So many of us have memories of going to a baseball game with our dad when we were kids. My dad would always make us leave if it was late in the game and the Yanks were going to lose. I would be disappointed - now as a driver I can completely relate to his urge to beat the traffic!
Nothing says Americana like Yankee baseball. The tribute really brings you back to a romantic period of American history, a kinder, gentler time. The pinstripe uniforms are almost as recognizable as the Yankee logo. Something about stripes.. remember - Coco Chanel was famous for wearing stripes knits herself. Chanel was famous for borrowing traditionally masculine details into her wardrobe. Cleats however have never had a fashion moment!
The book is available at major booksellers nationwide - or by visiting the official Yankees website or call (800) GO-YANKS. The list price is $50.00 but if you search online you might find better prices.
