Athletics Alternate Logo
The Oakland Athletics alternate logo history is all about "the white elephant." So let's see why the white elephant is associated with Athletics. In 1902 New York Giants Manager John McGraw dismissed the A's with contempt, by calling them "The White Elephants." He meant to imply that Mack shouldn't be allowed to spend money without supervision. Well, Connie Mack took up the gauntlet and defiantly adopted the White Elephant as the team insignia. And the elephant has lasted for over one hundred years.
