"We're #1, Oakland A's Athletics

Large plastic foam hand of yellow, printed in green: "We're # 1, Oakland A's Athletics." The "hand is larger than the normal adult human hand, and is made so a human hand can be inserted at the bottom. The front of the hand appears like the palm of a hand, with the first finger raised indicating "#1." The back is printed in green to look like the back of a hand with another print of the Oakland A's logo, and a logo of the Baseball organization indicating that this is "genuine merchandise."

The colors for the Oakland Athletic's baseball team are yellow and green. A plastic hand such as this one, would be used by fans at the game, to indicate their pleasure in a particular play; and the fact that they felt their team (the A's) was the best, #1.
