The Oakland Athletics(A's) started out in Philadelphia and managed my connie Mack.The A's main rivals

were John McGraws Giants who had managed the Baltimore Orioles before moving

to the national lg Giants.McGraw and Mack were old members of Irish clans which

dominated the game at the turn of the century.After turning his back on the new league(American)

McGraw referred to the Athletics as(White Elephants)The nickname stuck and the 2 teams met in the

1905 world series and McGraw was presented with a small white elephant toy.

The Giants went on to win the series in 5 games.The elephant nickname became

a part of Athletics uniform for many years.The first appearance of the elephant

on a A's uniform was in 1918but changed it to blue.It was said that Connie Macks

teams were either unbearable or unbeatable.For a few years macks A's fell on

hard times and he struggled finacially.And became in last place for the 1920 and 1921

seasons. Finally in 1924 he changed the elephant back to white and the team improved

somewhat.The added fading legends in ty cobb and tris speaker and added upcoming stars

cochrane,foxx,simmons,and grove.The elephant served its purpose and in 1928

the old familiar A was back on the jerseys.


Because of Macks inability to bankroll the teams stars the A's again fell on hard times.

And one by one thier stars were peddled off to other amrican league teams.The same

basic uniforms pretty much stayed the same thru the 40's as well.The only differences

thru those years were cap colors and changes in socks.

1950 end of an era

1950 was a milestone year for connie mack.Five decades at the helm that probelly

never will be matched.To celebrate the event they spruced up thier uniform

with a gold annev patch and gold trimming.After climbing up to the middle of

the packin 1948 and 49 they fell 102 games in 1950 and dead last again.Enough was enough

and with boston braves moving to milwaukee an idea to move to greener pastures

was not out of trhe question.Under new ownership the standard A now became

script Athletics in 1954.


with teams switching now acceptable the A's team moved west to Kansas City.

The Kc team kept the script on the jerseys and the famous A was kept on the caps

The old elephant emblem was also kept as well usually worn on the left sleeve


By 1962 all links to the Philadelphia past were erased.The city name kansas City was

now across the jersey and KC on the caps.One new invention was created as well

a number was placed not only in the back but on the left sleeve as well.

With charley finley purchasing the A's he wanted to take advantage of the

"television".Tradition be damned he jolted the baseball world by expierementing

with unmentionable color combinations.The sleeveless vest along with the indians

was introduced to the American League.An idea they got from the Cubs in 1940.


By 1967 Finley had had it with KC and so moved west again in favor of a new colliseum

in Oakland California.A fancy "Oakland" was placed on the front of the jerseys.

All the bright greens ,yellows and whites were kept for many years to come until the

end of the charley finley era.In 1987 Oakland toned it down to a conservitive trend

with just basic uniform schemes.
