"1929 Willis Hudlin Fielder's Glove Worn as He Pitched Babe Ruth's 500th Home Run"

Apparently, Willis Hudlin hopped into his DeLorean to get a 1940's Doak glove to pitch to the Babe in his 500th home run game...in 1929. Very rare offering from HA indeed!

$2040 for a run-of-the-mill '40s Model H. Sad.

Would have been fun to see where this auction ended up. The seller got too many offers though and figured out he had something special. So now it's a BIN for $1100. SOLD!

actually what he did was pull the glove mid-way thru the auction. Seriously frowned upon by eBay (and some of us buyers).
Also, may have cost the seller some $$ as bidding was about to heat up (I know of 3 collectors who were about to get involved).
No class seller!!!

Yeah, we'll never know. Brett's ceiling bid was $3500. Mine was close to that.

My feelings about ending auctions early are well documented here so I won't get into that however I think that when these gloves are ended early it hurts our hobby as a whole. I think high dollar sales/items create a buzz that helps throughout the hobby. By not allowing the gloves to go to completion and seeing what the market bears, the buzz never happens. I'm in agreement that this mitt would have sold for a great deal more than the $1100 buy it now. Although, Mike, you may be off in the number of zeros in my ceiling bid. 8)
