I bought this for my dad, and we both really love it. Since I was a kid, he's been talking about Tigers from his childhood--guys like Dizzy Trout and Hal Newhauser, and this book has great photos and accompanying stories of all the old-time Tigers. It takes you from Ty Cobb to Greenberg to Kaline and Cash to The Bird, Whitaker, Trammell, and all the way up to Verlander and Cabrera. Lots of coverage of the team's World Series appearances and other great moments. The photography is Sports Illustrated caliber, and there's tons of cool memorabilia. Visually, it's the best Tigers book I've ever seen. Very nostalgic.

Author George Cantor covered the Detroit Tigers for the Detroit Free Press during the 1960s. This book is a quick read, only 144 pages, but the book is filled with an interesting text and numerous photos both in color and black and white. I have followed the Tigers since 1951, and this period of time covered by the book brought back many memories. I did find one error in the book. On page 45 is a photograph of the Tigers celebrating their 1945 World Series victory over the Chicago Cubs. The author notes in the photo "Paul Richards in his chest protector." The catcher in the photograph with the chest protector is actually Bob Swift. Paul Richards is seated behind Swift without his uniform top. I know there are several books on the Tigers available to buy, and I can't speak for them. However, if you are a fan of the Tigers this book will provide you with a concise and interesting history, and the photos are great.

"The Corner" was rockin with 43,356 fans celebrating the end of an era at Tiger Stadium and a new beginning at Comerica Park. My dad and I were two of the lucky ones to attend the final game on September 27, 1999. I'm a collector of "baseball memories" and treasure my ticket stubs embossed with a final day stamp and my dads scorecard.This oversized boook includes many similar memorabilia items including ticket stubs, scorecards, buttons, yearbook covers, baseball cards, programs, sports pages, and ballpark souvenirs that seem to jump off the page. Half of the pictures are in color, the other B&W photos reminded me of reading the sports section. Alhough nothing can duplicate the aroma of stale beer and peanuts wafting through the echos underneath the stadium as you walk up the ramp to a sunlit green infield, but this book does a good job of highlighting each era of Detroit Tiger baseball and quickly brought back alot of memories from The Corner. It would be a great gift for any Detroit Tigers fan.
