Recent finds and pickups

Postby ScottWNJ » November 28th, 2011, 3:08 am

I've been pretty quiet for a while so I figured it's time to post some recent acquisitions. First up is a Pinedo catchers mitt. It is marked (in Spanish) "Made in Mexico for Leo Schloss- Baltimore". Couldn't find anything on Schloss, but I'm guessing it was a retail store.

Next is a really nice Hutch Ival Goody Goodman. Found this one in PA. Big glove with nice patch. Needs a little cleaning.

From Ebay, I won this Poll Parrot Shoes glove.

The next two I found in Florida. Wilson Ted Williams Ball Hawk in great shape, and a Wilson Billy Loes glove.

That's it for now. Thanks for looking.

I picked up this 2-finger Wilson glove recently. The front was under such a black grungy layer of dirt and grime that I couldn't see most of the markings, just the A2020 at the heel. I used a waterless hand cleaner with pumice and It did wonders in cleaning the grime off the glove although it probably wouldn't be good on a fragile leather. I followed the cleaner with some saddle soap and Vaseline. The hand cleaner I used was Go-Jo brand from my local hardware store. They also make a version with no pumice.

Fast Orange waterless hand cleaner has long been my "go to" stuff for removing that black grungy dirt and grime. It's pretty much the same thing as Go-Jo. I do prefer the non-pumice versions as they are less abrasive (maybe not an issue if the leather is in good shape) and seem a little easier to remove if you're cleaning over a lot of little nooks and crannies. The citrus smell isn't too bad, either. Fast Orange also contains lanolin (not sure about Go-Jo). Leather likes lanolin!

Re: Beto Avila

About a month ago on eBay a "Beto" Avila , made in Mexico glove turned up. Avila from Mexico of course, used that "Beto" name there instead of the Americanized version of his name "Bobby", the
Cleveland 2nd baseman.
I turned up a glove made in the Panama Republic about two years ago. Local buy.

Some recent 1950's glove finds:
Dubow "Carl Furillo" model 747B. The rolled leather piping is a good 1/4" in diameter. Pretty unique looking especially with the black and white contrast. Love the cloth patch and button too.

J.C.Higgins "Bob Feller" model 1638. Pretty common glove. I have owned a couple Higgins brand of that era and the leather is super nice.

I found this Wilson "Billy Martin" model 2190 Ball Hawk glove at an antique mall pretty much as you see it. Not really familiar with the color scheme of the cloth patch. It's really different from other Wilson patches I have seen from that era. Maybe someone knows what that is about?

I know they only used those tags for one year but I can't remember if it was 1953 or 1954. I've seen them on a few models but most common has been Ted Williams

Mike,

I wanted that GRINNELL bad, with the starting bid of $80 who knew where it'd go, think you got a steal of a deal. Beautiful looking mitt, the pics on ebay didn't do it any justice.

The ebay pics were taken at an angle and foreshortened the glove making it look like a stubby youth model. It is actually long fingered and almost 10" tall. The ebay pics coupled with the high starting bid kept some away. I got lucky. The Grinnell name was on my radar because of the posting of the Worth brand gloves starting up in Grinnell, Iowa. I thought that was an interesting connection.

A white leather "Bob Doerr" model glove with the laced back. Possibly a Globe brand. No manufacturers stamp present.

Bill Hatch "Frank Crosetti" model with a pretty cool web. The stamping on the thumb is from the OK brand, "Original curve to fit the hand glove" I tried to locate the patent for the "T" web but no luck. it was around 1940-41. Several brands used it. Reach mitts used it prominently. There is also the Marathon "Carl Hubbel" model. Maybe someone else knows?

Mike makes a good point on the" T" Web. Gloves were entering an interesting time period in the late 1930s, early '40s.
1. the Roman I or I (capital I eye) web
2. Tripple Tunnels
3. Tripple or Double Tunnells with white bandage tape
4. Net webs like the Greenberg first base mitt contraption, also used on gloves as cross hatch webs
5. The T Web Mike discusses

The tape over the tunnels would lead to the full or "Barrel" web created sometime in the early 1940s.
