Roy and Earle Mack buy the Philadelphia A's

The long struggle over control of the A’s ended August 28, 1950, when Roy and Earle took out a loan to buy the shares held by Connie Mack Jr., Katherine Mack, and the Shibe family. The loan left the club heavily in debt. Shown at the signing of the purchase agreement are, from left, attorney Robert Walker and Connie, Earle, and Roy Mack. (COURTESY OF ROBERT D. WARRINGTON)
