    Cornelius McGillicuddy managed the Philadelphia A's for 50 years. The longest serving manager of all-time, "Connie Mack" teams won 5 World Series, and he holds the record for most managerial wins, losses and games managed in major league history. Mack was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1937.

    With that many games managed, you'd think there would be a ton of lineup cards around, but they are not easy to come by. This one is from 1934, after the A's were no longer a powerhouse, but they did feature one of the great power hitters of all-time right in the middle of his prime: Jimmie Foxx.

    Thanks! I'm always glad to share. The specificity of the lineup cards lends itself to digging into the people and specific time.

    Lineup card came in the mail today. Scans of the front and back below.

    Based on the specific lineup and the fact that (ad the back indicates) it was a game in St. Louis, I was able to pin the game to May 21, 1934. The Aís beat the Browns 7-3. Jimmie Foxx his 8th home run of the season (230 of his career if my math is right). Eric McNair and Doc Cramer also had homeruns. Cramer was a light hitting CF who made 5 All-Star teams and ended up accumulating over 2700 hits. McNair may be most famous for being a member of the famed 1934 US team that toured Japan (including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and spy Moe Berg among others)

    It was torn and taped back together, but still couldn't pass it up. Also won a lot at an auction house for 275+ lineup cards from Tommy Lasorda's personal collection from the years 1985-1990. I don't believe there will be any Playoff lineup cards from the 1988 World Series run, but will be treasure-hunting for milestone games, rookie year lineups etc.

    Finding Hall of Fame managers that I donít have has become more difficult (despite me still not having some pretty recent ones).

    I was really pleased when this popped up on eBay. Lot also had opposing team lineup card which featured a young Pete Rose which is pretty cool.

    Seller also had a killer 1969 Mets lineup card that sold for a small fortune.

    Was glad to pick this up and the timing isn't bad. Trout was in his 2nd All-Star game. Machado and Scherzer were in their 1st All-Star Games.

    In the 2013 All-Star Game the AL won 3-0. and of course Mariano was named MVP
