    1901 Cornelius McGillicuddy (Connie Mack) Signed Philadelphia A's Inaugural Season Ticket Booklet. Incredible season ticket booklet from the Philadelphia Athletics' and American League's inaugural season of 1901 is signed by the godfather himself, A's owner and manager Connie Mack.

    Dark blue hardcover booklet (4.5x2.5") has light blue plate affixed on inside cover which reads: "American League Park, Entrance 30th and Oxford Sts. Admit to pavilion and scorer's box, John Saged, for all games by American League Club." Stamped "33" in red stencil , which indicates that this was the thirty-third season ticket booklet issued by the A's for the 1901 season. Signed at the bottom in 9.5/10 black fountain pen "C. McGillicuddy" who's title is noted as "Manager."

    The signature is rare because The Tall Tactician usually appears as the more familiar "Connie Mack." Also, it is interesting to note that Columbia Park, where the A's played from 1901-08, is referred to as "American League Park" in the booklet and on the tickets. Book still contains unperforated NRMT tickets from games "45" to "70." Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
