Catcher’s Mask

A catcher’s mask worn by Hall of Famer Mickey Cochrane is in need of conservation. Cochrane spent his baseball career with the Philadelphia Athletics and Detroit Tigers, and was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1947.

The Museum accepts hundreds of artifacts every year, all of which are donated. But in addition to the ongoing cost of housing and preserving the artifacts, there are expenses involved with conserving pieces that may have fallen victim to time and age.

The Museum promises to keep every artifact accepted into the Collection in perpetuity, and the proper conservation of artifacts in need of attention is crucial to their long-term preservation.

The estimated preservation cost is $1,500.
