I don't know that any major league franchise has had quite the luck the Athletics have had. Philadelphia to Kansas City to Oakland. Some world titles. And a stadium that looks like it could be outclassed by a A ball stadium in Oshkosh.* But the team just seems to keep winning through all of it.
*note: The author hasn't the slightest idea if there is actually a baseball field in Oshkosh. Or people, for that matter.
One thing I love about the A's is the infinite number of uniform variations the team has used over the past few decades. And who can't love a team with an elephant mascot?
At one point a Jose Canseco RC was the grail of collectors. When this one came to me, it was a dime box pickup. Oh how the mighty have fallen. But thankfully the world has done away with those awkward mesh jerseys.
