here's a new one. A military issue Dubow "Enos Slaughter" model 366. It's typical 40's era, big and built like a tank. I've always liked the patented outseams on the finger stalls and one of the coolest wrist strap buttons around. The deep reddish color of the leather is what really grabbed me though.

When I bought the glove, it had no webbing. I just couldn't pass it up though because the leather quality/condition was so nice. I saw on JD's site that the model 366 came with a "Doak" style H-web. I searched through my "bone yard" and found two matching tunnel webs and created the rolled lace "Mantle Tribute H-Web". That was fun!

Well done Mike. I have the 339 Billy Herman but it's a lower quality model. It does come with the very rare watch-web though. I don't know why it didn't catch on. I suppose it was ahead of its time.

Ata, your watch web reminds me of the old Timex commercials where they would wrap a Timex watch around a baseball bat, sledge hammer handle, or whatever to show how tough it was. "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking." :)
Believe it or not, I bought the same model Slaughter glove from Richie B. a short while ago. Aside from the web, they are twins. It was the first Dubow I've seen with a "Doak style web." Big, well made glove. The leather they used was terrific.

Always one-upping me Greg. I'll one-up myself and show you my new cATApillar web. Patent pending. I'll stop now.

That must be what they call a transition web. A pre butterfly or moth web.
You win this round, Ata. :lol:
