Mort Cooper's Glove

Mort Cooper was the ace of the St. Louis Cardinals' pitching staff when they appeared in three straight World Series in 1942, 1943 and 1944. During those years, he won a combined 65 games (most in the Major Leagues) and was the 1942 NL MVP and a four-time All-Star. He used this glove throughout his career. The glove originally came from the Cooper family and "Cooper" is written in black on the pinky.
