Giant-size bids are in order for this high caliber lot of (8) 1947-57 New York Giants yearbooks and World Series programs. Highlights are: 1947 inaugural yearbook (VG-EX) with one light compacting fold and (2) WS programs: 1951 vs. Yankees (EX), 1954 vs. Indians (VG). Also present are (6) 1950s yearbooks with: 1951 (VG-EX) with handsome gloss, 1952 (EX-MT) with deference to pen writing at upper left which does not affect the cover graphics, 1953 (VG-EX) with Lon Keller cover art, 1954 (VG-EX), 1956 (VG-EX) and 1957 (VG-EX).

All included programs and yearbooks have been conservatively graded and in general this very attractive group presents better than the assigned technical grades derived due to light to moderate age appropriate wear. The 1947 yearbook is oversized and is titled “The Giants of New York”. The 1956 and 1957 yearbooks have small, unobtrusive pencil marks at top left which have negligible impact on the abundant appeal of these vintage issues.
