The final change to the media guides came as we entered the 21st century. The dimensions of the book changed. The height remained 9" but the width increased from 4½" to 6".
Most of the covers featured several player shown in a collage instead of focusing on just one player. My two favorite covers are 2001, which used baseball cards, and 2005, with Billy. Fergie, Ernie, and Ryno.
The backs of the books changed with this run too. Instead of ads, all of these backs have the Cubs schedule for the season.
I'll end again with a tile of the books and tomorrow I'll try to put together a tile of my entire collection.
