I got some Amazon.com gift cards for Christmas and need to go shopping. I don't have any Chiefs history or encyclopedia like I do the Royals.

Amazon carries these:

* Kansas City Chiefs Encyclopedia by Mark Stallard (Hardcover - Oct 2004)

*Warpaths: The Illustrated History of the Kansas City Chiefs by Alan Hoskins (Hardcover - Aug 25, 1999)

*The History of Kansas City Chiefs: NFL Today by Brian Hawkes (Hardcover - Aug 2004)

Does anybody have these? Anybody know if they're worth owning?

Thanks


BTW, I've already passed on Carl Peterson's "Hail to Me, the Chief: My Five-year Plan to Create a Dynasty"

Must be this one:

The Need to Win: Football from My Own Heart by Otis Taylor and Mark Stallard (Hardcover - Aug 25, 2003) - Illustrated


GACK!!! Look what they're pairing it with:

Buy this book with Romo: My Life on the Edge--Living Dreams and Slaying Dragons by Bill Romanowski

I'd settle for toilet paper with Carl Peterson's face embossed on each sheet.

I have this one,good book.It looks as though Amazon has it in a combo package with the KC Chiefs Encyclopedia

Arrowhead: Home of the Chiefs is a monument to imaginative and aesthetic sports arena architecture, still after 25 seasons. While other arenas of its era are being replaced, Arrowhead continues to draw compliments as the best there is for football. Relive 25 years of Kansas City Chiefs football history in Arrowhead: Home of the Chiefs, the official history of the Kansas City Chiefs and Arrowhead Stadium.

siberian, I have all 3 of those books and they are worth it. They have some good information in them and good pictures. Worth the time to get them IMO.

If it's about the Chiefs we already know the outcome. It's mediocre.

I really liked Marcus Allen's autobiography. It's not exclusively about the Chiefs and their history, though.

Whatchyootalkin' bout, Simplex? He posted that, and America voted.....He stayed. Kind of like Clay Gaykin. A novelty at first, but then considered a significant contributor.


BTW, I have the Chiefs Encyclopedia. A good book for catchingup with the past, and for combating know-it-all's in this board.

* Kansas City Chiefs Encyclopedia by Mark Stallard (Hardcover - Oct 2004)

I got this for Christmas last year. It is really what it says, an encyclopedia. History, season by season recaps, player bios, all time rosters, summaries of some games, stats for every year, draft lists for every year, complete team record book. There are many photos, which are in black and white, but good. I like it. Big hardcover book of 450 pages.

I have this one and a couple others, but my absolute favorite is Gameface by Hank Young (http://www.amazon.com/Gameface-Portraits-Hank-Young/dp/0971109109).
