War of the super teams!

eBay Item of the Day

Only seven times in history have both participants in the World Series won at least 100 games. They are, in order, as follows:

1910: Philadelphia A's (102-48) over Chicago Cubs (104-50)

1912: Boston Red Sox (105-47) over New York Giants (103-48)

1931: St. Louis Cardinals (101-53) over Philadelphia A's (103-48)

1941: New York Yankees (101-53) over Brooklyn Dodgers (100-54)

1942: St. Louis Cardinals (106-48) over New York Yankees (103-51)

1969: New York Mets (100-62) over Baltimore Orioles (109-53)

1970: Baltimore Orioles (108-54) over Cincinnati Reds (102-60)

Among these seven match-ups, the highest combined winning percentage belongs to the 1912 entry. It is also the second-highest combined percentage of all time, trailing only 1906, a year in which the Cubs did the lion's share of the work in amassing the great combo record only to lose to the White Sox in six games.

So, one might wonder, is the 1912 World Series (represented here by this souvenir program) the greatest super battle of all time?
