    Description

    1962 Mickey Cochrane Signed Check Display. A likeable personality off the field, combined with his competitive nature on the field made Mickey Cochrane a fan favorite in the midst of the Great Depression. Lovell and Mutt Mantle of Oklahoma thought so highly of Mick they named their son after him, and the rest is history. Playing in a era that was dominated by Ruth, Gehrig, and the Yankees, Cochrane's Athletics and Tigers managed to win five pennants and three World Series titles over the course of his 13-year career. After a trade that brought him from Philly to Detroit he became a player-manager and brought Detroit its first ring in his second year on the job, but the pressure to perform on the field and in the dugout took a toll and his career ended at 34 in 1937. In 1947 he became the first catcher elected to the Hall of Fame by the BBWAA (Bresnahan and Ewing had previously been elected by the Veterans Committee). Though many names will come to fans' minds before Cochrane in terms of who the greatest catcher of all-time, but none have matched his career .320 batting average to this point.

    Presented in a beautiful 16x22" frame along with an oversized limited edition black-and-white photograph the check displays impeccably. Made out for the sum of $20.00, it is dated February 20, 1962 with Cochrane's full name - "Gordon S." appearing in the lower right quadrant. A single fold appears just left of the center of the note while the cancelation stamping does impact the first name in Cochrane's signature. Please be aware that the frame exhibits some mild scratching. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
