I wanted to let you know that I received the book and T-shirt package today. It is everything that I hoped it would be and more...THANK YOU! I look forward to reading the Vault and it will definitely be one of the highlight pieces of my Redskins collection. As a lifelong fan and former Redskins team intern in 2008, this book is truly special. Keep up the great work and I look forward to your future appearances on Redskins Nation. Happy Holidays to you and your family! HTTR!
NFL historians and luminaries, as well as Redskin Hall of Fame players and diehard fans, are all praising Mike's enlightening books on Redskins history, the Washington Redskins Football Vault and The Redskins Encyclopedia.
Washington Redskins Football Vault
“I am super impressed and congratulate you on producing a wonderful piece of work. I can say I particularly find all of the inserts fascinating. I love the old- style Redskins pennant hidden in the pages, fabulous. I’m calling the Vault my MVP – Most Valuable Publication.”
"I just wanted you to know we just got back from a long trip and got a chance to really look through one of the books -- the Redskins Vault -- and we can't put it down. This was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but my husband can not wait that long. He wants to read them both cover to cover as soon as he can. Oh well, guess I better find something else to surprise him with! The books are amazing and we LOVE the T - Shirt. I am going to send Larry Michael an email and hope he reads it on the air for everyone to buy these books for their Redskins fans! They will be more than happy they did! Thanks so much for making such a great read for us Redskins Fans!"
“We got the book yesterday! Thank you, thank you! My husband is very excited to put it in his "Redskins/man room." We are stationed in Utah, Eddie is in the Air Force. Hail to the Redskins from Utah!”
"I just would like to let you know how much I really love the Redskins Vault. It is the very best skins book that I've ever seen. I just got it. I also have your Redskins Encyclopedia, and it is good, too. But the Vault is off the charts. I had to let you know how happy I am with it. One of the things that I love about it most is that you wrote about Sean Taylor's death. I can't wait until an update comes out to see how you write about our new franchise QB, RG3. So thank you so much for helping me remember the good, the bad and the great! :) SKINS FOR LIFE!"
“Mr. Richman, I just purchased (the Washington Redskins Football Vault) and must say that I really enjoyed it. That is a must have book for any Redskin fan. I love both of your books.”
“The book arrived in the mail this morning and all I can say is WOW, what a fantastic job you have done. I have a shelf full of Redskins books, but this one goes to the front. One of the things that blows me away is the way in which you have colorized the black and white pictures. Great job, Mike, and thanks for all your good work. I look forward to your next project.”
“This is the best book on the Redskins franchise I have ever had the pleasure to read. This book contains the most interesting memorabilia I have ever seen. My personal favorite is the copy of the actual letter addressed to Joe Theismann from Jack Kent Cooke about his retirement due to injury. It made me want to cry.”
“I love the football vault...just got it for Christmas..i love the old tickets and letters inside..great historical facts! great job!"
“I got the vault as a birthday present last week, Mike - WOW. Incredible, incredible job.”
“You don’t have to be a Washington Redskins fan to appreciate and enjoy the Washington Redskins Football Vault. Mike Richman has taken the story of one of sport’s most historically rich franchises and chronicles it in a way that is as interesting and colorful as the team itself. Actual replicas of one-of-kind team-related artifacts sprinkled throughout provide an entertaining touch to an already fact-filled book.”
"This book recaptures … the team’s eight-decade history, and the replicas of memorabilia from the different eras are amazing."
“Serious collectors of NFL memorabilia and paper ephemera will want to add this book to their collection. It’s full of fascinating sidelights and tidbits, never before seen photos and enlightening anecdotes.”
The Redskins Encyclopedia
I just wanted to let you know that I received the package today in the mail. The book was beautifully packaged. I love everything you included with it. Thank you so much! And I really appreciate you personalizing it to my husband. He will really love and treasure it!
The Redskins Encyclopedia is going to make an awesome coffee table book for us. It is very well put together. I love all the information in it and cannot wait to read it. But what I truly can't wait for is the look on my husband's face when he opens this on Christmas morning.
Thank you for helping to make this Christmas special for us. I really appreciate it. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Hail to the Redskins!
“The Redskins Encyclopedia is an information bonanza that makes you want to keep reading. Redskins fans are special, and they deserve a book like this.”
“You can’t become a part of the Redskins’ future if you don’t understand the team’s great history and tradition. The Redskins Encyclopedia details the history of one of the NFL’s greatest franchises and allows you to become a part of its future."
"This book packs a punch just as strong as a hit by a middle linebacker!"
“The Redskins Encyclopedia is the definitive history of a football team that to Washington is a sports way of life. To this time, nothing has been done on the subject to compare with this book. It is a `can’t-miss’ winner.”
“For Redskins fans, this book is a treasure-trove of stories, facts, anecdotes and quotes. It’s as detailed as a Joe Gibbs game plan, as far-reaching as a Jurgensen to Taylor post pattern, and as enjoyable as a victory over the Cowboys!”
