Default New Book is out about the 1929-31 Philadelphia Athletics

I just wanted to let you Philadelphia Athletic fans know that there is a new book out about the 1929-31 Philadelphia Athletics. The book is named "Simply the Best: The Story of the 1929-31 Philadelphia Athletics". The author is Brett Topel. I have ordered the book from Amazon, but haven't received it yet. Hopefully it will be a good read.

In honor of this new book, feel free to show cards of your favorite 1929-31 Philadelphia Athletics players.

Eddie Collins played his last 2 years in the bigs w/ the A's in that span, he retired after the 1930 season.

Please let us know how the book is once you've received and read it, Brad. Foxx, Simmons, Cochrane and Grove are some of my favorite players.

Jeff, love that '23-'24 Exhibit Simmons--so tough to come by!

Regards,

Larry
