The 1930 Philadelphia Athletics were a powerhouse. Managed by Hall of Fame skipper Connie Mack, the team ran away with the American League pennant, finishing the season at 102-52. This team-signed picture display features the Athletics' great stars: Hall of Fame catcher Mickey Cochrane hit .357 on the season. Jimmie Foxx, Philadelphia's first baseman, hit .335, and Hall of Fame outfielder Al Simmons hit .381. The pitching staff was led by Hall of Famer Lefty Grove, who went 28-5 in 1930. The Athletics defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games in the World Series. The 19 autographs on the signed photo include: Connie Mack, Simmons, Grove and Hall of Famer Eddie Collins, who played in three games for the team. Also signing were George Earnshaw, Jimmy Dykes, Wally Schang, Roger "Doc" Cramer, and eleven others. The display also has a 3.5x4.5" great shot of Connie Mack waving his signature scorecard, and two other player photos. The photo display is matted and framed at 23.5x19". Further into the Great American Depression, Connie Mack had to break up this great squad for financial reasons but offered is a signed team photo display of the Philadelphia Athletics at their peak.
