    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)
