Personalised Hearts Football Book
- Gift Details
Extremely popular, our personalised football books will be an absolute winner with the football fanatic in your life. Complete with newspaper cuttings and articles on all the magnificent moments in their football team’s history. Any Jambo fan will be proud to have this gift as part of their memorabilia.
From 1920 to the end of last season, this Hearts Football Book covers all the Jambos’ highs and lows, including two of their four league titles and three of their seven Scottish Cups. Formed in 1874, any fan will be spoilt with over a century’s worth of football history to read through.
Things start of slowly for Hearts in this Football Book, before picking up pace after 1954. It was from here on in, under Tommy Walker, that the club won the league title twice – in 1958 and 1960 – as well as enjoying a Scottish Cup victory in ’56. The League Cup, meanwhile, was won no fewer than four times – in ’55, ’59, ’60 and ’63. Sadly, the Jambos would then have to wait nearly 40 years for their next major honour, which was secured with another Scottish Cup in ’98.
Nevertheless, all these triumphs, everything in between, and the exploits of legends like Barney Battles, John Robertson and Gary Mackay are covered here, using reprints of original newspaper reports. Much of the content in the personalised football books feature rarely-seen content, giving the books valuable knowledge for any Jambo to indulge in.

Heart of Midlothian FC was founded in 1874. It has since become one of the most successful Scottish football teams after the Old Firm. The club won consecutive league titles in 1895 and 1896 and had won four Scottish Cups by 1906. The Jam Tarts didn’t win another major honour until 1954, but they made up for this drought with ten years of regular trophies. Managed by former Hearts player, Tommy Walker, the Jam Tarts went on to win two more league titles and five domestic cups. The Old Firm has dominated Scottish football in recent decades, aided by the increased funds at their disposal, but Hearts beat Rangers to a second place finish in the league in 2006. The two Glaswegian clubs hadn’t been split at the top of the league standings for eleven years.
A Hearts Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Jam Tarts. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Hearts Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Hearts memorabilia collection.
This Hearts Football Book opens with the Jam Tarts' 5-1 win over Hibernian in 1920. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and highlights from the current era.
The personalised Hearts Football Book includes many other classic derby victories against Hibernian, such as the 8-3 thrashing in 1935 and the 5-2 walkover in 1949. You can read about Hearts beating Hibernian in the 1956 League Cup and there is a great report on the Jam Tarts knocking the Hibees out of the 1994 Scottish Cup quarter-final. The Gift Books also feature exciting European games, where Heart of Midlothian took on the might of the continent, including Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. The Hearts Books cover Sandy Jardine's 1000th senior appearance in 1985, as the Jam Tarts beat Rangers 3-0. The Gift Books also relive terrific trophy wins, incorporating articles on Hearts securing both the League Cup and league title in 1958, lifting the League Cup again in 1959 and 1962, and winning the league championship in 1960. Scottish Cup final wins against Celtic in 1956 and Rangers in 1998 are also covered, as are many other great results.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Heart’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts and a great addition for a collector of Hearts memorabilia.
If you are a collector of Hearts memorabilia or looking for other club gifts, why not consider our Hearts Calendar or Hearts Diary? Each month features a newspaper headline on one of the Jam Tarts’ key games. The presents can be personalised with the recipient’s name to make them even more special and both items make great gifts for Heart of Midlothian fans. Other Hearts presents include Framed Newspaper Headlines and special Hearts Mugs.
