that is a pretty nice Cooper Weeks mitt. The "Trapper" style is common. They are plentiful on ebay and most all reasonably priced. If you are in to that style, you could start a start a top collection easily. Just stay away from anything with cloth or vinyl piping and look for all leather, sturdy construction and as many cool extra features as possible like manufactures cloth patches, interesting web styles, thumb and pinky loops and unique buckle strap or other tied fasteners. After a while you will notice certain patented features among glove manufacturers that set them apart and sometimes make them more collectible.

Thanks for the tips Mikesglove. Not too sure what i am into right now, i just love baseball memorabilia. Excited about opening day today!! I used to get out my glove and tighten it and oil it while watching the first game of the season.
