    1927 Jimmy Cooney Glove Used to Record Unassisted Triple Play. One of the most uncommon, and hence thrilling, defensive feats in baseball is the unassisted triple play, recorded just fifteen times in Major League competition to date. Presented is the glove that was on the left hand of Chicago Cubs shortstop Cooney on May 30, 1927 at Forbes Field when, with Pirates on first and second and nobody out, he snared a liner, stepped on second, and then tagged the runner charging in from first. The ancient four-fingered buckle-back Draper & Maynard glove exhibits heavy wear with period repairs indicating many seasons of use. It has no visible attribution markings, but is accompanied by a signed note to famed collector Barry Halper from Cooney attesting to the provenance. Letter of provenance from Cooney.
