Subscriptions to the Baseball Digest Archive are $38.95 per year and are non-refundable.

* VIP Lifetime Discount valid as long as you remain a Baseball Digest print subscriber.

Digital subscriptions to Baseball Digest are distributed by third-party vendors like Zinio. These vendors do not share subscriber information so there is no way for us to verify subscriber status.

No. The Archive is a separate subscription product.

Our cover-to-cover Archive format means each regular issue is presented in its entirety, including the front and back covers as well as all articles and advertisements contained in the original publication from the first issue August 1942, to the March/April issue of 2019. The Archive is updated annually.

It takes time to prepare issues for Archive distribution and obtain the necessary rights, so we update 1x per year.

Nearly any digital device connected to the internet: home smart television, home computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. If you can view an internet web page on the device, you should be able to view the Archive on that device.

eMagazines.com is the Baseball Digest Archive partner who is fulfilling subscription orders, maintaining subscription accounts, and also providing troubleshooting support regarding access to the Archive, device problems, subscriber account renewals, readability issues, and search facility problems. They can be reached at: baseballdigest@emagazines.com or (877)684-9313.

Yes, all 800+ issues are searchable.

The quick answer is no, not commercially without violating copyright laws. While Baseball Digest owns the copyright to each complete issue, many of the early photographs, drawings, and articles we were granted the rights to use remain under copyright protection by the original source even today, and in many cases those rights are still being vigorously enforced. Thus, republication in part, or all, of an issue may expose the user to possible civil liability. That said, if you own a non-commercial blog/group/forum/etc and post a small quote or copy some stats or the like, we simply ask that you quote the source and link back to the Archive. Other uses should be cleared by us first.

Please contact our advertising department using this contact form.

Digital subscriptions provide immediate access to the current digital issue during your subscription term(s) via an email notification. Further, your library will contain all issues during your subscription term.

Archive subscriptions allow access to available back issues of the magazine. The Archive is updated annually, not including the last couple of issues published.

We are in the process of evaluating best practices for adding this feature. Look for this upgrade, along with many others, in the third and fourth quarters of 2019.
