Los Angeles Angels Collectibles And Memorabilia
Los Angeles Angels Collectibles And Memorabilia are items connected with the American baseball team.
The Los Angeles Angels are a professional American baseball team based in Anaheim, California.
The team was founded in 1892, and since then the Angels have had three different name changes: From 1965 to 1997 the team changed their name to the California Angels, and in 1997 it was changed again to the Anaheim Angels until 2004. In 2005, the Angels changed their team name back to their original name, (the Los Angeles Angels), although the team has been based in Anaheim, California since 1996.
The Angels have won one World Series title in 2002 and eight West Division titles since their formation.
In 2009, the Angels franchise drew in more than three million fans in attendance for the regular baseball season nine years in a row, and in 2011 ESPN ranked the franchise as #4 on their "Ultimate Team Rankings" list.
Some of the most notable players who once played for the team include Bert Blyleven (who played for the California Angels from 1989 to 1992), Frank Robinson (who played for the California Angels from 1973 to 1974), Don Sutton (who played for the team from 1985 to 1987), Rod Carew (who played for the California Angels from 1979 to 1985), Reggie Jackson (who played for the California Angels from 1982 to 1986), Nolan Ryan (who played for the California Angels from 1972 to 1979) and Dave Winfield (from 1990 to 1991).
