Sandwiched between New York’s “Murderers Row” version and the late-1930s juggernaut led by Gehrig and DiMaggio, the Philadelphia Athletics’ dynasty was arguably more dominant, yet often overlooked. Winners of an aggregate 313 games from 1929-1931 (a three-year mark surpassed only by the 1969-1971 Orioles), Connie Mack’s troops were proficient in every facet of the game. This 1930 World Series program is a published reminder of those stellar A’s teams. Issued at Sportsman’s Park for either Game 3, 4 or 5 of that Fall Classic, the 16-page guide features team composite photos and unmarked scoring grids whose pre-printed lineups list legends such as Cochrane, Foxx and Simmons. With covers and pages intact, this scarce survivor shows the expected effects of a day at the ballpark, including a vertical crease common to programs of this era. The spine is secured by a strip of transparent tape.
