That's interesting, Mike. It was neat to find this photo awhile back, as an old Milwaukee Braves fan.
Then I picked up this Spalding Whitey Ford PM without the TraPocket stamping. Hmm...

Nice glove! I guess the "Patent Applied For" stamp explains it.

From the 1937 Rawlings catalogue. First year for "The Original Genuine Bill Doak" stamping and a good looking double pager.

Nice full page ad for the Pepper Martin DeLuxe PM model.

First appearance for the 8BD, 7BD and 6BD models.

I happened across this full page ad from 1957. At the bottom is a tiny ad for a Rawlings "Royal Label" Turtle Back catchers mitt. I'm familiar with the Lopata and Lollar models but not this one. Image
Below is an example of the Royal Label LMX Model. It's pretty nice, top of the line in its day.

Below is a photo of Yogi Berra with a Spalding version of this mitt.
