A couple of a favorite player, Harlond Clift. I like the rolled lace web on that big Rawlings glove.

Roy Sievers with the same type web. Must have been really popular back then. Lots of photos out there with players using that "outlaw web."

Minnie Minoso, Jim Landis, Luis Aparicio, and Nelly Fox with their 1960 Gold Glove awards.

Brooks R. with a Big 8 style web, circa 1964. I don't think you could get one like his at your local sports store.

Cool photo of Robinson with the V-anchored "Double X Web" Rawlings glove. I have not seen that photo before.

Here's a nice one of Mantle circa 1967. He is wearing the DCT model base mitt of team mate Elston Howard. Note the "HOW" on the wrist strap. Besides catching, Howard spent time in the outfield and first base.

Best chair I've seen in a long time. Beautiful and looks super comfy.
