This fifty-two page soft-cover booklet, titled "Athletics Champions 1910" was sold at Shibe Park during the 1910 World Series, as noted by the text along the base of the cover that reads "World's Championship Souvenir - Shibe Park." Similar to a yearbook, the booklet features photos and biographies of each of the A's team members, including manager Connie Mack, club president Ben Shibe, and Hall of Famers Eddie Plank, Chief Bender, Eddie Collins, and Frank "Home Run" Baker. The attractive cover design features an illustration of the club's mascot, the white elephant, hoisting an A's player in the air on his trunk. The booklet (5.25 x 8 inches) displays handling wear commensurate with its age, including oxidation to the staples and a few tiny areas of light discoloration on each cover. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
