Packed with over 150 color photos, 28: A Photographic Tribute to Buster Posey captures the catcher’s entire career, from the first time he stepped foot onto the field for the San Francisco Giants back in 2009 all the way to his final at-bat in 2021.
Longtime sports photographer Brad Mangin teams up with Buster Posey himself in this visual celebration of the star catcher’s 12 seasons with the San Francisco Giants. One of the most beloved players in Giants history, the rookie catcher helped carry the franchise to its first World Series in San Francisco in 2010, and from there, the rising star carried the Giants to win two more World Series in 2012 and 2014—all brilliantly documented by Mangin.
With an introduction from veteran sportswriter and San Francisco radio host Brian Murphy, along with essays from Buster and his teammates, managers, and other sports luminaries—including Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper, Bruce Bochy, Matt Cain, Brandon Crawford, Gabe Kapler, Hunter Pence, Sergio Romo, Logan Webb, and Barry Zito—28 tells the story of Buster’s illustrious career from the heartfelt perspective of those who know him best.
Off the field, Buster used his platform to help children, and now his legacy continues to transform lives. He and his wife, Kristen, created and nurtured BP28, a charity that has raised over $4 million since 2016 in its endeavor to improve outcomes and raise awareness of pediatric cancer. Kristen also shares that story here, and a portion of the proceeds from this book will benefit their foundation.
