The 1890 Philadelphia Athletics finished with a 54–78 record and finished in eighth place in the American Association. During the season, the team struggled financially and wound up selling or releasing most of their players. They were able to finish the season with a pickup team and were subsequently expelled from the league following the season. They were replaced by a new Philadelphia Athletics team that had played in the Players' League the previous season.
