The Original Hercules Brand, Circa 1902

Postby mikesglove » July 4th, 2014, 12:09 pm

The Hercules gloves shown may have been a house brand of Pacific Hardware & Steel. They have the look of D&M equipment of that period and feature a couple of D&M patented designs including the riveted finger stiffener and heel lacing on the catchers mitts. With branches located in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Pacific was headquartered in NY. so an east coast sporting goods mfg. makes sense. This 1902 catalog shows some nice web-less, tipped finger and crescent pad gloves and mitts.
