Description



From the final years that the Athletics franchise called Philadelphia home, comes this 1950-1954 A's team-signed baseball lot of (4). Under the magnificent leadership of Connie Mack for fifty years, the A's gave the "City of Brotherly Love" several incredible dynasties to adore, but in the team's days of decline the move westward was the right thing to do. Recalling the last hurrah with (3) balls signed by the 1954 A's squad, this group rounds out with (1) ball signed by the 1950 team, with each of the (4) balls accompanied by an individual full photo LOA from JSA.
