Keeping with the Hollywood theme, this is a still from the 1927 Buster Keaton film "College". HOFer Sam Crawford also makes an appearance playing the baseball coach. Buster Keaton was an avid baseball fan and would often play catch in between filming scenes. His acrobatic athleticism, due to his vaudevillian training, translated well onto the field; as he was an accomplished ballplayer in his own right.

A 1949 photo of Yogi Berra using what looks to be a Rawlings 241 Del Rice model mitt with rolled lace webbing.

Hey Ata, nice photo of Yogi. I don't think he would be using the Del Rice model. The mitt in your photo is distinguished by a 1948 patented crotch reinforcement that eliminated metal eyelets in favor of overlapping leather tabs. Below is a closeup of the mitt in the photo and a model recently on ebay that is a match. It's a Walker Cooper model, top of the line in its day.

Here's a player from the 1890s sporting a webless crescent. That heel pad’s a real fatty.
