Looks like scene directions on Bing's wrist strap. Bob couldn’t care less for directions.

Those look like high quality gloves, including Lucy's 3-finger.

Tombstone Arizona circa 1890's. Cool photo! I like the catchers gear. He's up to date and squared away.Image

Ty Cobb with what looks to be a Bill Doak. And a 1925 ad for the glove.

Wes Ferrell on the right with a blazing white glove. The intricate webbing and tie back wrist strap looks to be D&M or Goldsmith.

Anyone know what kind of mitt this is? I can't figure out the make of the label. It's from 1913.

Maybe Wright & Ditson like this patch?

Or Rawlings?

Maybe Victor, Wright and Ditson?

Wes Ferrell used some really cool gloves. Here are a couple more. I wonder if he was influenced by his Red Sox teammate Lefty Grove and his laced fingers Reach?

I did a double take looking at that catalog page. Couldn't place the model names or numbers at all. Then I realized that they were made in Canada.
I don't know how many Canadian made Spalding and Reach gloves show up on ebay these days. Years ago they did from time to time.
I picked this one up a long time ago. It has the Flex-form fingers and Seamless Thumb. I like the "Choice of Champions" stamping along the thumb, which I've never seen on a USA version.
I don't think I've seen a Canadian Spalding/Reach that was endorsed. This one has 2X stamped near the palm, but it's worn and hard to see. Don't know if that's the model number or the size.
It's a good sized glove, 10 1/2" tall.

The photo got bucketed so here it is again.

That's a great photo! Nice view of the original Decker Safety Mitt. Still amazing to me that despite their popularity, none have surfaced yet. It looks like there is some sort of webbing or reinforcement between the thumb and body of the mitt. The button back wrist strap also is pretty cool!
