A little known fact about baseball Hall of Famer Mickey Cochrane is that he was also quite a musician and one of the better saxophone players of his era. Good enough in fact to be a legitimate stage performer with his instrument in the off-season. The offered cool photograph shows Mickey as he prepares to go on stage and applying make-up in front of a mirror that looks better suited for Greta Garbo! An interesting photograph that we have never seen before, issued by Acme and with a detailed paper caption on the back.
