Post them if you like (doubles are fine too)! Here are some I have.

A nice looking Harry Gumbert. This one features a double button closure and large Ken Wel patch! Soft feel too!

A Ival Goodman fielder's glove with Vance-like lacing. This one has a great feel and a smaller tag (dirty).

An extra large George Selkirk model glove. Nice quality glove with a large patch. This model features a white suede liner.

I found this Ken-Wel Bill Cox Model 539S at a garage sale this summer. Unfortunately, the original owner wrote his name on the back of the webbing.

Wow! That one is cool. Looks like it's built like a tank. The name really isn't a big deal. Let me know if it ever becomes available.

One of the nicest KenWel gloves to come down the pike in a long time, even with the previous owners inked name on the front and back. Rarely seen factory markings of the full "KenWel" and "Neverip" logos. The patent pend. stamping and endorsement are strong. The earliest KenWel patch on the back is pristine as is the inner lining. This is from an auction Brett posted a while back. Wish I had been there.

I don't mind seeing that one again. That's a beaut! The name is really not an eyesore, tastefully done in my opinion. Really like the white leather, orange welting, and tan piping. The black stampings just pop on this glove. I also like the stamping in the inner liner. Thanks for posting.

That white KenWel is a beauty? Is it possible to fall in love with a glove without even holding it?

Here is one of my favorite Ken Wels. The K in the logo is made up of crossed bats. It's the only full web I have ever seen. I need to find my suede brush. Also love my flat top lefty catchers mitt.

It does look like something is stamped there. I guess you have the eagle eyes. Have you seen the glove up close?

JD, that full web is wild! I like the flat top. When I first started out and thumbed through James Mace's book, I always wanted to see one. Thanks for sharing!

I know there's more out there, keep em' coming!

@Mike: I never saw that glove until Brett posted it. You can just tell in the photo. I always like gloves that have stamping in the liner like the G41 Ruth.
