Item description for Athletics Album: A Photo History of the Philadelphia Athletics by Mark Stang...

Over 225 black and white photographs span six decades of baseball history in this stunning collection of Athletics images. From the days of Lefty Grove and Jimmie Foxx to Ferris Fain and Eddie Joost, the famous and forgotten fill these pages and recall the glory of Philadelphia Athletics baseball. The book covers the A's from their first year in the American League in 1901 all the way through their departure to Kansas City in 1955.

Culled from 14 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of previously unpublished images. Many of the older photographs were locked away in dusty files for decades until appearing here for the first time. Printer's marks were removed and the detail in the images was revealed through careful restoration. Most of the photographs have been reproduced to near their original size to faithfully record what the photographer saw.

These photographs record the changing face of baseball through the century by documenting the evolution of equipment, ballparks, uniforms and batting styles. Players, managers, owners, and broadcasters--they're all here, with captions that bring their stories to life. From the glory days of the $100,000 infield to the agony of 1954. From Ben Shibe to Bobby Shantz and everyone in between.

Reviews - What do customers think about Athletics Album: A Photo History of the Philadelphia Athletics?

another great book  Jan 22, 2007
I really appreciate what mark stang does. Culling from wire photos, collectors and the hall of fame, Stang builds a great photo history of players and teams. He manages to focus on players who are not famous, and photos not often seen. His books are invaluable to anyone who collects vintage baseball material.
