While I really like the book, I was expecting more photos of exciting plays. That said, you do find a history of the team in the photos' captions.
A well done history lesson with great photos. It was nice to see a photo of Carl Scheib, a distant relative who played for the A’s in the 40’s and 50’s
I can barely remember the A's in Philadelphia but I do remember Bobby Shantz. I was always a big fan of his even when he pitched for the Yankees. The book is just a testament to the A's in pictures. I enjoy being able to put a face to a name. I heard a lot about some of these great players but never got to see them. I've really enjoyed this book with a couple other magazine articles about the A's I have saved.
