Description

Warranting cover images on several sports-themed publications, as well as on Time magazine, Hall of Fame backstop Mickey Cochrane was far and away the game’s best-hitting catcher until a bean ball prematurely ended his career at the age of 34. Immediately following his playing days, Cochrane authored and autographed this hardcover book. Entitled Baseball: The Fan’s Game (1939, Funk & Wagnalls), this first edition is signed by Cochrane in black-ink steel tip fountain pen on the fly leaf. Accompanied by his salutation of “With Best Wishes,” Cochrane’s signature projects (“8-9”) strength and clarity. Covers and crisp pages remain completely intact. The original dust jacket accompanies and has edge wear and instances of separation. Auction LOA form JSA.
