Best Answer

The current Athletics (Oakland) began play as the Philadelphia Athletics in 1901. However, there were several teams in Philly known as the Athletics. There was a team that played in the American Association between 1882-1891 known as the Philadelphia Athletics. And a Baseball team was formed in 1860 in Philadelphia known as the Athletic Baseball Club. This team stayed together and, when the National Association began play in 1871, joined and was known as the Athletics.
