The 2021 season ended in heartache again for Houston fans. The regular season was yet another productive one for the Astros, claiming their sixth playoff berth in seven years and reaching their fifth straight American League Championship Game.

Luckily, there’s no better way to cheer up the Astros fan in your life than with our fascinating newspaper book, the perfect piece of Houston Astros memorabilia!
Delve into the Astros’ best moments in newspaper articles originally reported in the Dallas Morning News, reporting on their greatest games and star players! Coverage goes as far back as the franchise’s debut season in 1962, letting you relive all your favorite baseball moments. For an extra special gift, this Houston Astros book can be personalized with any Name and Message!
The book begins with the Houston Astros officially announcing joining the NL in 1962. The team was initially founded as the Houston Colt .45s, but was renamed the Houston Astros three years later after moving to the Astrodome. It would be over forty years later that the team would experience its first World Series! This happened in 2005 when they played the Chicago White Sox, known to be quite a controversial series since the MLB commissioner Bud Selig declared the games to be played with the stadium roof open. Many people thought this nulled the enthusiastic Astros fans as they cheered for their team, and Chicago won 4-0.
Twelve years later, after finishing a season with over 100 wins for just the second time in their history, they defeated the LA Dodgers 4-3, winning their first ever World Series title.
