Very cool. I had a similar one, a Charlie Gehringer model that I traded away years ago. The leather on that one was really dry and stiff, though. Yours looks much nicer and way more supple. Nice pickup.

It's a mid line model circa 1960. It's a "Personal Model" which is the most collectible. Except for the webbing, the mitt looks in good shape. Check out the glove library at http://www.baseballglovecollector.com
You can view pdf's of mfg. catalogs and compare different models and years. It's a great resource if you're a beginning collector

Was very excited when this popped up on eBay - knew they existed due to picture from 1962 Sporting Goods Dealer - happy to add it to the collection.

I thought you would be on that Sonnett stuff from ebay.
I picked up this 1939 Spalding Robert Rolfe model 212 glove. I've had several wide wrist strap models in the past, either Reach or KenWel but no Spaldings. This one is in the best shape of them all. I like the lace trap web.

That's one nice, high quality glove, Mike.
Love that Sonnett display piece, too, Brett. Back in the day, those eye catching displays caught my attention as much as the gloves did. I still have one by Rawlings that I love.
Here's an old favorite "good glove photo" of Rolfe with Lou Gehrig. Check out that cool Spalding 3-finger.
