Wonder who made it; Wilson?
Just came across this one. Jeter's gone old school. :shock:

The Jeter glove looks to have a Spalding tag with Abercrombie & Fitch below? Nice glove.

Wilson is a good bet for the Rip Collins Ambidextrous glove. I don't have a 1955-56 Wilson catalog to check. Here is an example from JD's site

I think it's a Rawlings that Jeter is holding.

I say Rawlings with a Leacock tag below it.

That is a neat shot of Whitey Kurowski with the Rawlings rolled lace web, Mike. Tough to tell what make of glove Enos Slaughter has. I found this picture of his gamer from the 1942 season (at least that's what the book claims. Who knows for sure?) But it is possible that it's the same glove in the photo, minus the web. The back of his glove looks like it has the seam in the right place to wrap around under the thumb and make that loop shape on Spalding and Wilson's Seamless Thumb models.

That's the second shot of Whitey K. that I've seen him wearing a rolled lace web glove. I don't suspect that's the same glove Slaughter's wearing compared to the auction"gamer".
Musial hanging onto a first base trapper it seems.

Interesting glove below with some intricate thumb stitches and the wrist strap wrapping around to the front of the glove.

"Home Run" Baker circa 1910

Interesting glove. Looks like it has a modified or custom made heel pad.

Wally Schang circa 1915

Possibly an early Reach mitt with the thicker padded wrist strap.
Image
From this view the mitt looks like it could possibly be a "Double Face" model

Some comments on Mike's picture postings. THANKS MIKE!!
Ron Carlson, of Dallas and still an active glove collector, purchased the Ripper Collins collection of gloves and other pieces. I believe Collins passed away in the Houston area and Ron purchased several gloves and items from his family. I believe the ambidextrous glove was included in those purchases. Ripper worked for Wilson in his post career days -- 1950s -- and had his signature affixed to the Wilson top of line 1b mitt sold at that time.
I thought it was curious that Ed Lopat (pictured above) Allie Reynolds and Vic Raschi, bulwark of the 1950s Yankees pitching staff along with Ford, ALL are usually seen wearing Wilson gloves. Yet, none of these outstanding pitchers ever had their signature endorsement on a Wilson glove. Though none are hall of famers and all deceased, their signed autographs are quite valuable.
Noticed the other day that only Don Larsen and Yogi Berra are the only NY Yankee players left alive from the 1956 Yankee World Series "perfect game," according to Larsen quote.
