The Major League Baseball Opus tells the epic story of baseball on a scale unmatched in the history of illustrated publishing. From its humble origins in the mid-19th century to its present-day incarnation as a global force, baseball has a dramatic and colorful history. Produced in association with the publishing division of Major League Baseball Properties, the latest title in the Opus Collection is the definitive tome on the sport and is filled with historic baseball photos never before seen in such a large and stunning format.

This particular copy of the 414-page baseball odyssey belonged to the late, great Tony Gwynn. It measures 18” high by 13” wide and holds three significant autographs in black Sharpie on its inside page belonging to three remarkable former members of the San Diego Padres: Trevor Hoffman, Dave Winfield and Gwynn himself. Both Winfield’s and Gwynn’s signatures are accompanied by their Hall of Fame induction years: “HOF 2001” and “HOF/07” respectively. The 25-pound book comes complete inside a special Navy blue case emblazoned with the San Diego Padres team logo in white across the front.

Includes Letter of Authenticity from the Gwynn Family.

Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

A portion of the proceeds generated by the Tony Gwynn Collection will be donated to the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation. The TAG Foundation is a non-profit, 5013(c) charity dedicated to creating and supporting programs that enhance opportunities for youth to become healthy, educated, and productive citizens.
