Overview

Who comprised the most productive pairs in the history of professional team sports? Joe Montana and Jerry Rice of the San Francisco 49ers? Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls? What about the prolific hockey tandem of Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier? And that all-time great New York Yankees twosome of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig certainly can't be excluded.

Using various selection criteria—including longevity, level of statistical compilation, impact on one’s team, and overall place in history—The 50 Most Dynamic Duos in Sports History attempts to ascertain which twosome truly established itself as the most dominant tandem in the history of the four major professional team sports: baseball, basketball, football, and hockey. Arranged and ranked by sport, this work takes an in-depth look at the careers of these men, including statistics, quotes from opposing players and former teammates, and career highlights. Finally, all 50 duos are placed in an overall ranking.

Covering every decade since the 1890s, this book will find widespread appeal among sports fans of all generations. And with photographs of many of the tandems, The 50 Most Dynamic Duos in Sports History is a wonderful addition to any sports historian’s collection.

Editorial Reviews

BlogTalkRadio: The Root and Roots Show
Excellent book! I love books like this. I really enjoyed reading your book because you get a mixture in here. You get everyone and I’m happy that you put hockey in here too because a lot of times people will talk about all time team mates and they’ll mention three of the four professional major sports, but they’ll rarely talk about hockey, so I’m glad you put that in there.
