The Philadelphia Athletics of the early 1910’s were the toast of the American League, claiming pennant victories in 1910, 1911, 1913, and 1914 behind the shrewd managerial mind of Connie Mack and his lauded “$100,000 Infield” of Stuffy McInnis, Eddie Collins, Jack Barry, and Frank “Home Run” Baker. The 1913 season saw arguably the greatest version of these Athletics, finishing the regular season with a 96-57 record and a dominant five-game defeat of Christy Mathewson and the New York Giants in the World Series.

McInnis (.324), Collins (.345), and Baker (.337) all easily cleared the .300 mark for Philadelphia, while Baker’s 12 homers and 117 RBI both paced the American League, with the Maryland native in his third of four consecutive seasons leading the Junior Circuit in roundtrippers. The pitching staff, led by 37-year old ace Eddie Plank, delivered the club high-level production as Plank, Boardwalk Brown, and Chief Bender combined to win 56 games.

In 1914, the Athletics returned their dynastic core to win yet another American League flag, however a World Series matchup with the Boston Braves saw the National League pick up another season-ending trophy. Nevertheless, seven A’s pitchers finished the season with double digit victories, and Eddie Collins was presented with the prestigious Chalmers Award in recognition of his .344/2/85 season with 58 stolen bases and 14 triples. 

Offered in this lot is a 1913-14 Philadelphia Athletics road uniform. This offered gray flannel jersey is a pullover with a four-button front. A navy felt “A” is sewn on the left chest. A Spalding tag and a name that appears to be “Sawey” are sewn inside the jersey.  Gray flannel 1913-14 A’s pants are included in this lot. A Spalding tag is sewn inside the pants with a name that appears to read “Sawey” embroidered below. This uniform comes with a LOA from MEARS assigning the uniform a grade of A6.
