Much has been written about the Edmonton Eskimos football team, but nowhere has the club’s entire history been gathered together in one place – until now.
Introducing Epic Legacy of the Edmonton Eskimos, a large format, limited edition book created by Epic Legacies Inc. in cooperation with the Edmonton Eskimo Football Club.
The first publication of its kind, the book chronicles highlights of the club’s entire history; from its very beginnings to the present era. Included are long-forgotten stories and rarely seen photographs featuring the people, places and events that shaped the club into what it is today.
Relying on his 45 years of experience reporting on the club, noted sports writer Terry Jones brings to life the story behind the fourteen-time Grey Cup champions for the benefit of fans for generations to come.
In Terry’s words, “This book details the exploits of the legendary Eskimos team as they won each of their five consecutive Grey Cups. It celebrates the Hall of Fame and Wall of Fame careers of the team’s stars and other notables. But it’s the whole of the accomplishment that is almost impossible to comprehend.”
Tipping the scales at ten pounds and beautifully packaged in a custom gift box, each book is individually numbered and contains a certificate of authenticity. Features include letters from well-known players, autograph cards, a team statistical record book, fold-out photo pages – even an award panel featuring plastic-coated photo reproductions of the Eskimos’ twelve Grey Cup rings!
One feature that proved to be a fan favourite was the invitation to upload a photo of themselves and have it printed in every copy of the book, forever uniting them with their team.
A portion of the proceeds from every copy sold goes to the community-owned Edmonton Eskimo Football Club. Epic Legacy of the Edmonton Eskimos is a must for every die-hard Eskimo fan.
Books are now in stock and available for immediate shipment. Fans can order their individually numbered, limited edition books directly from the publisher through this website.
ABOUT THE PUBLISHER
Epic Legacies is all about celebrating historic journeys. We achieve that by creating custom-produced, limited edition publications of exceptional quality and purpose for the benefit of fans for generations to come.
The goal of each publication is to deepen the relationship between a professional sports team and their fans and supporters. By delving into a club’s archives, we chronicle highlights of their history; from their very beginnings to the present era. We bring to light long-forgotten stories and rarely seen photographs featuring the people, places and events that shaped the club into what it is today.
Far more than a statistical record, we share personal insights from players, coaches and management of yesteryear and today.
What drove them to succeed? How did they cope with failure?
We talk about the good times as well as the challenges faced at different points throughout the club’s history. We also look beyond the club, to its league and to its community.
The resulting publication is a feature-loaded, large format, limited edition coffee table book that tips the scales at nearly ten pounds. Features include in-page pockets containing letters from players, team autograph cards, fold-out multi-page photographic spreads, place-marker ribbons, a team record book – even photo reproductions of championship rings and awards. One feature that has proven to be a fan favourite is the invitation to upload a photo of themselves to be printed in every copy of the book, forever uniting them with their team.
The team’s story is brought to life by a knowledgeable and well-known sports writer, and is illustrated by carefully-selected and often rare photographs. Each book is individually numbered and contains a certificate of authenticity.
Sales of the publication are made directly to fans and supporters of the club by the publisher, Epic Legacies Inc. Awareness is driven primarily by social media marketing routed through the club or directly from the publisher.
Each volume is beautifully packaged in a custom-designed gift box. Following publication, orders are promptly delivered to the customer’s door.
