A good photo of Joe Jackson and his glove. Who made it?

Postby okdoak » April 22nd, 2017, 5:47 pm

Don't know if this photo has already been posted. I just found it and it's circa 1914. I thought Spalding at first, but as far as I know the letters for the model are stamped in the pocket on theirs.
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?

Greg, I think you have to resize the Jackson photo to include the glove. The present photo may exceed the forum posting parameters.

Way to tease us. You can't see his left arm let alone his glove :D

Hmm...that's weird. It's a big image (1100 X 852), but it shows up fine on my monitor. You guys looking on your phones? :wink:

I cropped it and shrunk it in half on the other image. Let me know if that works.

The logo on his glove looks a lot like the Simmons American catalog image.

I thinks so too, Mike, though it's still just an educated guess on my part. So many makers used a round logo that it's hard to be certain.
I'll have to figure out how to use the attachments feature for my next photos instead of Imgur. Thanks for the heads up.

You bet, Brett. Now we know what to look for when his gamer shows up on ebay. :lol:
