The 1973 Oakland Athletics won their second consecutive World Series title when they defeated the surging New York Mets in a hard fought seven-game series. To commemorate the achievement, this offered figurine display was created with the line-up that brought the city of Oakland the title. Measuring approximately 28 inches long, the starting lineup, along with manager Dick Williams are lined up on a wood base to resemble the first base line during introductions. The players are dressed in green jerseys with yellow trim and the “A’s” on the chest, with green and yellow hats, white pants with green and yellow trim, yellow socks with green stirrups and white cleats. Williams is decked out in white hat with green trim, a green jacket with “A’s”, a partially displayed white jersey and the same pants, socks and sneakers as the players. Sculpted in plastic, the detail is tremendous and each player is lined up in line-up order as they would have been during Games 3 and 6.

Manager Dick Williams is on the far left with his right hand on his waist. Shortstop Bert Campaneris has his hands on his hips with his fielding glove in his left hand. Left fielder Joe Rudi is holding a bat with both hands (knob end in his left hand). Third baseman Sal Bando is standing with his right leg out front and his arms crossed. Right fielder Reggie Jackson, with his trademark glasses, is standing while holding his bat with the barrel over his left shoulder and a batting glove on his right hand. First baseman Gene Tenace is standing with his left hand holding the brim of his hat and his right hand on the back of his hat. Center fielder Billy North, who was injured late in the season and did not feature in the playoffs, is standing with his right hand in a fist on his hip and leaning on his bat with his left arm. Catcher Ray Fosse is standing with his green chest protector and green shin guards with his catcher’s glove on his left hand and holding a baseball in his right hand. Second baseman Dick Green is standing with his right knee bent and leaning on his bat in his right hand. Lastly, pitcher Jim “Catfish” Hunter is standing with his fielding glove tucked under his right armpit cupping a baseball in his left hand while having two fingers from his right hand on the ball. A gold plate at the center of the display reads “1973 Oakland Athletics TM” and each player has their name and position printed in gold in front of their feat. Williams is standing on the left-handed batter’s box, while the players are standing on the first base line. This is a tremendous display piece commemorating one of the best teams of the 1970s.
