Post-1970 question

Postby robert1977 » August 24th, 2011, 5:42 pm

I picked up a Bobby Grich ("Bob Grich") Rawlings GJ60. Is this glove from the 1980s?

Thank you in advance.

It's a 70's glove. Apparently, this glove was only sold in 1978 (from the Vintage Baseball Glove Catalog Source Book). Rawlings sold Grich-endorsed models other than the GJ60, and they also sold GJ60 models endorsed by other players. But 1978 is the only year where their catalog lists the GJ60 as being a Grich-endorsed glove.

General rule of thumb: In 1980 Rawlings dropped the "GJ" designation in their model numbers and began using the familiar "RBG" prefix.
