Handwritten letter signed "Mickey Cochrane," two pages, 6 x 9.5, The Hollenden Hotel letterhead, May 16, 1931. Letter to Kathryn L. Drought, in part: "We are in first place now and I hope that we can remain there until the end of the season. I believe that we are going to win again although we have so many double headers coming that it will be a great strain on our pitching staff. The other clubs are in the same fix so it won't be so bad. I appreciate your interest in our club an in baseball as a whole. We will do our best to win again." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Cochrane's own hand. Cochrane and his Philadelphia Athletics were unable to clinch a three-peat as World Series champs in 1931, losing in seven games to the St. Louis Cardinals. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
