There Were Giants in Those Days: The New York Giants Dynasty 1954-1963 by Gerald Eskenazi

A nostalgic look back at the decade that defined the New York Giants, updated with a new introduction.

NEW YORK TIMES reporter Gerald Eskenazi brings us back to 1954, when the New York Giants began a decade of success as an iconic American sports team, winning six division titles between 1954 and 1963. Emerging from years of slumber, going from the Polo Grounds to Yankee Stadium, they produced a crop of hall of fame players whose names still resonate, including Tittle, Gifford, Greer, and Robustelli, making a then $7 New York Giants ticket the toughest to buy in the world of sports.

Filled with personal anecdotes from players and coaches that reconstruct the drama and excitement of the plays and games during that eventful era, Giants fans will be reunited with the players (Robustelli, Huff, Grier, Modzelewski, and Svare on defense; Gifford, Rote, Brown, Shofner, Webster, and Tittle on offense), their rivals (Jim Brown, John Unitas, and others), meet Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry when they were assistant coaches, and relive the 1958 title game against the Baltimore Colts—the first overtime game in National Football League history—which remains in lore as the "greatest game ever played."

Originally published in 1976 and now in eBook for the first time with a new introduction by the author on the Giants of the past 25 years, and their Superbowl championship under Tom Coughlin, THERE WERE GIANTS IN THOSE DAYS is a look back at the decade that defined the New York Giants.
