So, first the back story: my pops is the kind of guy who doesn’t ever comment on ANYTHING! He honestly doesn’t. He came over to my house yesterday (the one i have been slaving over with a hellish remodel that is killing me) and said nothing. Nothing! So, there you have it. Last night, we finish dinner and presents start coming and i hand him the first book. He quietly opens it and proceeds to go through the entire thing slooooowly. my mom looks over his shoulder and they reflect on memories: how broad he was, and skinny… at the end he looks at me with all this emotion in his eyes and voice and says “honey, this so nice. What an amazing gift.” And that, dear stone, is the first time my dad has EVER said that about any gift or THING we’ve ever done for him. THANK YOU so much for pushing us to do this. I know he went back to his hotel last night and opened the rest of the books. These books are more than images and words, they are his life, and they reflect his commitment and passion and excellence for this game that he gave so much to. I honestly cannot tell you how much it means to him and to all of us. Please pass along props to all who worked on this project. More feedback to come as we make out way through the trilogy!

I wanted to give my husband something that was unique and personal. I found exactly that when I was referred to Stone at Best Of years ago and was so impressed with their work. Their product is stunning and of exceptional quality. Watching my husband look through his books with our children and relive the proudest moments of his career is beyond gratifying for all of us.
Alyssa HackworthNFL Seattle Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin’s wife
A one of kind gift. The biggest testament to Best of Legacy’s work is that two of my close friends both had Best of Legacy put together albums for their husbands after seeing mine. My husband couldn’t believe the number of articles and amazing photos in the book. I’ve never seen him so touched by a gift before.
Jenny MyersRetired NFL All Pro Chris Myers’ wife, and sister of retired MLS Player Chris Albright
What a unique gift! It’s really the perfect thing for the player who has everything. We leave it out on our coffee table and it’s been quite the conversation piece. If you have memories you want to preserve, go through best of legacy. The quality of their work is amazing.
Lauren TeahenRetired MLB Player Mark Teahen
Oh my gosh….it’s fantastic! I was sitting on the couch with tears rolling down my cheeks as I scrolled through the memories. You guys are amazing.
Kyle PhillipsRetired MLB Player and advanced scout Chicago Cubs
This book is a must for any athlete or business professional wanting to highlight their career achievements or accolades. The craftsmanship was extremely professional and exceeded my expectations. My book told the story of my childhood all the way through my professional baseball playing career. I can’t wait to share these memories with my expanding family.
Katie TracyRetired MLB Player Chad Tracy’s wife

BEST kept secret! Seriously I’ve never been more satisfied with a purchase in my life. Every page of my sports legacy scrapbook is a flash back. So many years on the ice…so many memories. Enough to bring a grown man to tears. There were clips in there I had forgot about! Thanks Best of Legacy.
Shannon HillenmeyerNFL Retired Player Hunter Hillenmeyer’s wife
Lauren Teahen – Hi guys! I finally opened the giant box that’s been sitting in the closet for weeks. I was going to wait until marks retirement party to look at it but I couldn’t stand it.Next Saturday can’t come soon enough. He is going to flip when he sees it. I’m already anticipating ordering an extra copy for his parents. His mom is going to lose it when she sees it. I had tears in my eyes flipping through so many amazing memories I had forgotten about. Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job. Today I was thinking about Hunters awesome book and realized that I haven’t been in touch since wereceived it! We had family in town when it arrived and it was such a perfect time to share it and reminisce together! What an awesome thing you do for many families- can’t wait to share this and reflect on it as the years pass. Hunter was blown away and we hope to do one for my Dad as retirement comes. Thank you. Warmly,

The book is over-the-top amazing! It’s a priceless treasure. I simple thank you does not do it justice! I am overwhelmingly grateful for your professionalism, patience and creativity! With much gratitude,
Darcie HullNHL Hall of Famer Brett Hull’s wife
Upon Brett’s retirement I found myself asking “What gift can i get ‘Brett Hull’ that he wouldn’t get for himself?” BESTofLEGACY was the answer. His book is a true living memory of both his amazing career & touches of his personal life. It took me some time to bite the bullet and bring his book to life, but I’m telling you, the book will give YOU far more than what you pay for it. With our fast paced lives, I have been grateful for the book’s ability to slow us down and remind us to take the time to relive & respect ALL of the great moments on the pages & the (even better;) stories that lie beneath them. A BESTofLEGACY book is truly a personal, beautiful piece of art that you & your family will cherish forever.
Caroline AucoinNHL Veteran Adrian Aucoin’s wife
I have never been more excited to give a gift to Adrian than I was with his first BESTofLEGACY book. I ended up ordering 4 more throughout his career and we are thrilled with our collection! I love when I find him or our kids browsing through the book’s collection of articles & personal photos, making new memories while remembering the old ones…
Andrea DoanNHL Veteran Shane Doan’s wife
We absolutely love the BESTofLEGACY book that was created for Shane. It is a gorgeous heirloom styled book filled with all of Shane’s career highs and unforgettable hockey moments of his first 1000 games. What a treasure to have all of these memories, news articles and photos stored so beautifully and professionally in one place.
Courtney MaybinAtlanta Braves player Cameron Maybin’s wife
Just wanted to let you know I received the book and it looks amazing!! Have to get a copy for my father in law for Christmas too!
Pam SuchRetired MLB Pitcher and Coach Dick Such’s wife
He was totally overwhelmed and so loved it! He’s really a quiet guy, so it’s always kind of hard to tell emotions on something like this, but he did think it was Amazing! Thank You So Very Much Again! And I will pass the word along what a Fabulous Keepsake others can have! Thanks again!
Mary CatherinePittsburgh Pirates Pitcher Mark Melancon’s wife
I think it’s awesome. I love all the photos and I love the large photos at the end. Seriously this might be the next book you take around as your “example” when trying to sell it to other girls. I love being able to have Mark’s articles, but also the family “baseball” photos we have collected. It makes it truly personal. Thanks for all your hard work Scott.
Sheileah CrispCincinnati Reds Infielder Brandon Phillips partner and sister of Coco Crisp
