1905 New York World Series Ring
Before the Series began, the Oakland Athletics also known as Philadelphia Athletics then were already at a major disadvantage.
For the Series, they were without the services of Rube Waddell, who was arguably their best pitcher that year.
Furthermore, the reason for Waddell’s absence was listed as a shoulder injury from some sort of ‘wrestling match’ with teammate Andy Coakley.
Though in years since some have speculated that Waddell was actually bribed or ‘paid off’ to fake the injury and thus not play in the Series.
However, Philadelphia manager Connie Mack, however, refused to believe this theory, finding it ridiculous.
McGraw had previously referred to the Athletics as a “white elephant”, which the club defiantly adopted as a symbolic mascot.
At the conference at home plate before Game 1, A’s team captain Lave Cross gave McGraw a wrapped package, which turned out to contain a toy white elephant.
McGraw responded with a last laugh, easily defeating the A’s in the Series. Claiming their first franchise World Series Ring.
