I am confused but intrigued…
Seems someone is working on an alternate history book.
Unfortunately, I have a paucity of promotional material from this era at my disposal, and my attempts to find more through the usual channels have been largely unsuccessful. To give you an idea of how hard it is to track down this stuff, my biggest break came a few months ago when I randomly found a 1999 season fridge magnet at my wife’s grandmother’s house. The fact that this era doesn’t yet seem to attract mass nostalgia is a big reason why I’m writing this book. But I know there must be people out there who have old programs and stadium giveaways and whatnots in their collections. That’s where you come in.
If any of you folks out there have programs, yearbooks, or any other promotional material from 1999 or 2000, I’d like to see it. You don’t need to physically send me anything, and I don’t want to use it in the book (or rather, I don’t think I could afford to license it for the book). Just snap a pic with your camera phone and send it my way. If it’s a program, a page or two will suffice; I’m particularly interested in seeing what player features and scorecards looked like back then. This will all help shape the look, feel, and spirit of this ebook, and you shall be thanked profusely in the book’s acknowledgements, if that does anything for ya.
If you do have any pics of this material you’d like to share, tweet at me.
