Tom Henrich & Mickey Owens Signed Photo 8×10 – COA JSAGo Back
Mickey Owen played as a catcher for 13 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) between 1937 and 1954 for the St. Louis Cardinals, Brooklyn Dodgers, Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox. Considered an outstanding defensive catcher, his career was nonetheless marred by a crucial error that he committed during the 1941 World Series.
Owen is most remembered in baseball lore today for a costly mistake that he committed during that year’s World Series. The Yankees held a 2-games-to-1 lead entering Game 4 on October 5 at the Dodgers’ home field, Ebbets Field. With the Dodgers leading 4–3 and 2 outs for the Yankees in the top of the ninth inning and the count 3–2 on Tommy Henrich, Henrich swung and missed at strike 3, which would have been the final out of the game, but the ball eluded Owen and went to the backstop, allowing Henrich to make it safely to first base. The Yankees then rallied and scored four runs in the remainder of the inning and won the game 7–4. Instead of the series being tied, the victory gave the Yankees a 3–1 lead. The next day, they beat the Dodgers 3–1 in Game 5 and won the World Championship.
Presented is an 8×10 black and white photo of Tommy Henrich and Mickey Owen. They both signed it in blue felt tip (“9”) with Henrich adding the date of that World Series error moment, “10-5-41”.
