Andrus & Naedele Sporting Goods

Postby mikesglove » October 25th, 2013, 9:10 pm

Henry Andrus and Theodore Naedele were born circa 1850 in Hartford CT. They met and became friends as football teammates at Yale. They joined into partnership in 1884 to engage in bicycle and sporting goods sales. They became Hartford's only full service sporting goods store by the turn of the century. They were highly regarded for their custom made fishing rods which today are highly collectible. They remained in business until 1924-25.

The photo below is circa 1917 showing their store front on Asylum St. It is now a parking lot.

Below is an ad circa 1908.

The Andrus & Naedele glove below is in great shape.

Here's the cleaned up version - very large glove with soft, supple leather and great tag. No complaints.
