Christmas gift ideas for the baseball historians in your life

It’s that time of year. Get your shopping done early and don’t wait until the last minute to wrap them. Here’s the first installment of TWJ’s “Christmas gift ideas” 2019.

Cincinnati Red StockingsI love baseball history more than I like modern baseball. The Houston Astros will always be a National League team to me. Hank Aaron will always be the all-time home run king. And baseball card sets should have either 660 or 792 cards, released in one series, with an update set at the end of the year. I miss subsets and despise insert sets, just like Night Owl. I’m living in the past and I know it. And I’m perfectly fine with that.

Here are some ideas for baseball fans in your life that are older than forty, that long for the purity of the pre-steroid era.

Books. Some of these books are old and some are new, so check your friend’s bookshelf before placing an order.

Apparel. You can’t go wrong with a good baseball cap or jersey.
