The 1890 Philadelphia Athletics (alternately known as the Quakers) baseball team was a member of the short lived Players' League.

After the season, the league folded, and the Athletics were admitted into the American Association as a replacement for the AA version of the Philadelphia Athletics, a team expelled after the 1890 season.
