Relive all the greatest moments in A’s baseball history through newspaper headlines of the time with this personalised Oakland A’s book. With coverage beginning in 1910, the year of the franchise’s first World Series title, this fine piece of Oakland Athletics memorabilia guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Philadelphia, Kansas City and Oakland, right up until the present day.
Only two MLB franchises have won more World Series titles than the Oakland Athletics. Success started early in Philadelphia, as the A’s won three titles in four years between 1910 and 1913, thanks in no small part to its legendary $100,000 Infield. Overall, the A’s would win five World Series titles in Philly, and then, after a particularly unlucky thirteen years in Kansas, the franchise moved to Oakland in 1968, where it would capture three consecutive World Series titles between 1973 and 75. The Astros have not returned to the World Series since 1990, the year after their ninth and final title, but did enjoy a memorable run in 2002, winning an American League record 20 games in a row under general manager Billy Beane, a period immortalised by the Oscar-nominated Brad Pitt film Moneyball.
