The Simmons American logo looks kind of close. But the catalog listing I found is from 1918 and shows it as a full web. Any guesses?

Double strap fingerless throwing glove on the RH. Not sure about the LH catching glove, could be a hook and grommet with lace on the back or a double strap full finger model?

Not a photo exactly but here's a 1939 Wheaties box panel (no. 3 from a series of 8 historical baseball souvenirs) depicting the first baseball glove worn by a player named Doug Allison in 1869. Spoiler alert: The crowd wasn't impressed.

"It was flesh colored so that it would attract as little attention as possible. It also had holes in the back for ventilation. When the crowd saw it, they jeered and booed!"

The glove above predates the 1878 Butts patent below. Ventilation holes are nowhere to be seen on this patent though.

C'mon Rawlings you couldn't even spell his name right? Here's Stan the Man wearing the Rawlings "Muscial" glove early on in his career. Notice the stamping on the wrist strap just like on his 1944 gamer model below.

Team photo circa 1912-15. Photo was described as 1894, not likely!

Bill Dickey with what appears to be a Spalding mitt, given the location of the tag.
