In December, I went through some microfilm archives and got the Chronicle's day-after coverage of the '70s dynasty winning its three titles. Here's some images of the celebrations. I have no memories of them-they all happened before I was around-but maybe some others can talk about what they were like. Anyway, here's 1972:
And 1974-that's Reggie yelping under some streams of beer, champagne, and shaving cream:
I took some more pictures, and they're available here, along with a description of the "Dodgers Goof" in game 5 of the '74 series-it was Bill Buckner failing to reach third with none out in the top of the eighth and the A's winning 3-2.
Which of the A's '70s titles was/is the best?
