PIcked this up a few weeks ago at a thrift store.

Can anyone tell me anything about it?

Thanks

According to Joe's Catalog Source Book, the glove appears in the Spalding catalogs from 1966 through 1969. Quality made USA Colavito gloves usually sell pretty well. Nice pick up.

Spalding owned Rawlings in that era (before an antitrust action broke them up) and they used many of Rawlings designs. This may be the same glove as the Rawlings XPG3.

A great find! the guys on "the other baseball glove forum"- Glove-Works Modern Glove Forum- would drool over this! Might want to post it there too.

This 42-223 model is not very top-of-the line Spalding glove during this era at $28.50 in 1966 when the best Spalding gloves were going for $39.95. Rawlings was making the Spalding gloves at this time based on the Rawlings patterns and this might be more akin to the Rawlings XPG12 or XPG15 of that same period. The earlier Colavito Personal models of the early 1960s, such as the 42-204 were being used by the likes of Sandy Koufax and Whitey Ford., making that one a very desired glove by most collectors. Colavito was a very popular Cleveland player and this is not a weak glove. However it looks like it's in not in top shape from the images. Maybe worth between $25 and $50 in the right setting.
