Plus his spikes. An interesting looking mitt from the HOF. Once again, I wish there was a picture of the back.

That is sweet. I think I remember a picture of a glove similar to that posted by JD at one point but definitely not the same one. Wonder who the manufacturer is on that one?

Is this glove why they called Evers, "The Crab?" I think I've seen one other. Will have to look thru the catalogs I have to see if I can spot one of that era.
thanks for posting Greg.

Guys, Me memory may not be as good as some, but I do not recall ever seeing that duo fat fingers pre-war style glove. That one is as rare as a hen's tooth. LOL I love the unique and the funky and this one fills the bill.

Joe, I thought I once had the land crab with my ambi glove. :lol: I could see where that name was attached to someone using a glove style like this. Cool!!

If JD, has had a pic of one of these in the past I don't recall seeing it. It seems not to show on his pre-war gloves on his links that I could find.

A very cool old glove.

These are the gloves you guys are thinking about. They are in the Pre-War 3 Gallery at the end. They aren't exactly three fingers but I didn't want to create a gallery for 1 fingers or 2 fingers.

Well, been holding out, I have two of these but patch and stampings were gone so I didn't know the maker, so now I offer one up for a PEPPER MARTIN PM model :P ,

No I don't have two, but I can now see this model being on some big time want lists, Thanks Mike, You are the Bird Dog of the Briar patch, hunting stuff up along with some others, thanks you and all who do the digging!
