    Description

    1934 Goudey Mickey Cochrane #2 PSA Mint 9. Mickey Cochrane was much more than just one of the best back-stops in baseball history. His skills as a manager elevated his Detroit Tigers to World Champions in 1935. As a player and manager with both the Tigers and Phil. Athletics, he was part of five pennant winning teams, three World Series championships and two American League MVP awards (1928 and 1934). Offered is a stunning fresh-from-the-pack example of Cochrane's condition sensitive card #2 from the 1934 Goudey series. Graded PSA Mint 9, this card boasts every characteristic one looks for in a mint card - bright-white borders, razor-sharp corner tips, rich hues and problem-free surfaces. His beaming portrait is precisely registered, the reverse compliments the front as the traditional ghosting so commonly found with this series is absent leaving a glowing bright backdrop against the bold green advertising and biography. Finding a '34 Goudey in Mint condition is no easy feat as less than one-tenth of one percent of the close to 18,000 PSA submissions has resulted in this revered grade. The SMR value is $6,750 but this is one of seven examples at this level with none graded higher. Once cards like this are acquired it is unlikely they become available in the foreseeable future. A fantastic addition to any '34 Goudey collection and what a great type-card!
