Book Description

March 1 2009
Here is an intimate pictorial history featuring rare and many unpublished color photographs of the Yankees from the golden age of the celebrated baseball team. Yankee Colors tells the story of the legendary period from 1949 to 1964 when New York baseball was supreme and the New York Yankees were in the World Series almost every year. Now, this glorious period of Yankees history is captured through the intimate lens of famed sports photographer Marvin Newman. He was one of the only sports photographers of the time shooting in color and capturing the Yankee greats such as Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Casey Stengel, and Yogi Berra. Images of regular season games, pennant races, World Series competition, and Yankee Stadium are included.
 
This book is a must for every Yankee and baseball fan, with behind-the-scenes moments and photos of the greatest baseball icons of the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yankees come alive in COLORS May 25 2009
By Steven G. Ike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Mantle, Maris,Howard,and Stengle live again in the book YANKEE COLORS.
The photos,most rarely seen,Jump off of page after page of breataking color photography. These images make you pine for these long gone Gods of Baseball. The book is also well written, making it a joy to read and gawk at. The black and white photos are not bad either.
A must for yankee fans of all ages, and Baseball fans in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures of the best years to be a Yankee fan May 13 2009
By J. Groen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as a birthday present. I grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey in the 1960s and was a die hard Yankee fan. Looking at the beautiful pictures of Yankee stadium and the greats from that era brought back the memories of the best years (in my opinion) to be a Yankee fan. I especially liked the sections regarding the World Series with the Dodgers (1955-56, and 1963), the Braves (1957-58), the Pirates (1960), the Reds (1961), the Giants (1962) and the Cardinals (1964). In providing these stories and the supporting pictures, the book is surprisingly not biased towards the Yankees. It gives a good balanced showing of what happened. So, it is even a good book for a baseball fan of that era. For that reason, I highly recommend it especially for Yankee fans but also for all baseball fans of the late 1950s and early 1960s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Looking at a Stack of Old Baseball Cards--Return To Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear... Oct. 15 2009
By Big D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
All this book needs is Dizzy Dean saying, "The Yank-kees a-coming to bat..." as only he could say it. (Always wondered why a former Cardinal player was so enthralled with the Yankees as an announcer!!!)

This book is a treat to a child of the fifties and sixties, especially those of us who collected baseball cards and knew the value, even then, of a good, mint-condition Mickey Mantle.

This is a great book, a thrilling return to the days of yesteryear when heroes could be heroes, when we were young and unencumbered with the cares of the world.

This book is a trip back in time. And its a good, enjoyable and worthwhile trip, no matter if you are a Yankee fan or a Yankee hater. This was and is baseball at its best. This book is a treasure trove of memories, warm thoughts and wishes--wishes that the game could be once again as it was then.

If you are a child of the fifties and sixties, it is a chronicle of our lives, a more simpler, pure, clean time in our lives...before money and too much media destroyed it all.

Look back, remember, feel good and then, feel a little sadness that these days are gone and these players, who played for the love of the game are gone, the likes of which are never to return.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been better. June 16 2009
By Onecustomer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although born in 1963 and too young to have recollections of the early 1950s through 1964 time span covered by this book, I recommend Yankee Colors: The Glory Years of the Mantle Era. There are many other baseball books that account for the same period, but few offers color pictures.

The book does have some flaws:

1. Misleading title; not every photograph is in color: those of spring training and the 1955 and 1956 World Series are completely in black and white.

2. Lack of coverage, in pictures or text, of the 1951, 1952 and 1953 World Series, all of which Mantle played in.

3. Errors in content. For example, the 1963 World Series section has a picture of Jim Bouton warming up at Yankee Stadium, with the caption claiming this was game three (game three was played at Dodger Stadium).

For these shortcomings, I rated it four stars instead of five. Nevertheless, Yankee Colors is a worthy purchase; seeing the photographs of the stars of yesteryear, such as Yogi Berra, Roger Maris, Tony Kubek, Whitey Ford, and of course, Mickey Mantle, plus other great players including Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays and Bill Mazeroski, etc., in flannel uniforms, as well as that of long gone ball parks like Crosley Field, Forbes Field, and the pre-mid 1970s rennovation Yankee Stadium lets one travel back in time to a simpler era, when baseball was still more of a game, before it was taken over by free agency, battles between millionaire players and billionaire owners, greed, and steroids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yankee Colors: The Glory Years the Mantle Era April 26 2009
By E. E. Bradford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Excellant!!! I grew up listening to the Yankee's on my fathers radio, we didn't have Tv in those days, 1941 to 1952 when we finally got electric and a TV. That was in Kunkletown/Kresgiville Pa. I lived my married life in NJ and often went to the newer Yankee statium in the Reggie, years. Boy does this book bring back long time memories, I would recomend this picture book to any Yankee lover. My Daughter-IN-Laws sister lived next to Yogi in Montclair NJ and he is just bigger than life and just as nice and pleasant.
