A great gift for any Giants fan

Marty in Albany : 8/10/2010 10:40 am

When my wife saw the Maple Street Press "Giants Annual 2010" sitting by my computer, she said that she had seen it at our local CVS Pharmacy the day before, and that she nearly bought it for me. If you can convince your wife or your girlfriend to buy you a copy, or even if you buy it for yourself, you will have a very enjoyable read or a great gift for any Giants fan (but after you see it, you probably won't want to give it away). It contains more about the Giants than you will see in a year of Sports Illustrated.

It has 128 pages of articles and pictures. The photographs are outstanding. There are no ads. It is all Giants. There are articles by Ralph Vacchiano, Ernie Palladino, Ed Valentine of Big Blue View, Pat from Inside Football, and others. The articles are well written and well researched, but more importantly, enjoyable reading. The Annual is something that you can sit back and savor. It will become a permanent addition to my Giants book collection.

It might be difficult to find. It would be sold in the magazine section or it can be ordered on line from Maple Street Press.

By the way, last year I reviewed Ralph Vacchiano's book

"The Making of a Quarterback." I recommended the book highly and I got no complaints afterwards. I have no financial interest in either publication, although you can buy Ralph's book from the BBI Store.

I ordered it on-line and it was delivered to my house in PA. a few days later. It is a good as advertised. The layout, content and ingenuity is first class. A great read and a keeper for any Giants or football fan.

BTW...Thanks for the great camp reports!!!!

first preseason game.

Would like to read up on some of the guys who have gotten talked about much on here. Considering they are going to be playing a majority of the first few games.
Wonder if it will compare in any way

FYI, once you take it into the bathroom, you can't return it. Just ask George Costanza.
This way I assure myself
