Babe Ruth Reach Model RF2 "Home Run Special". It was an ebay pick up from last week and cleaned up very nicely.

I don't know what you are talking about! I was out looking for dinner in a dumpster behind a local restaurant and found this, along with some chimichanga.

There were white markings on the pinky and thumb of the glove where the ink had already flaked off revealing the original white leather. Some of the inks of yesteryear were of the pigment type. Soot or lampblack was mixed with water and shellac added as a binder. Shellac is fragile and brittle and could be why the ink was flaking off this glove. In any event, It didn't penetrate the leather deeply like the modern dye type inks so I just scraped the rest off with the edge of my X-acto knife. I really like the way the piping jumps out with just a little Vaseline brushed on. It was dry as a bone.

The red marks on the front was a powder of some sort that came off easily.

A George Reach brand "Sam Chapman" model SC in near mint condition. Love the double laced fingers. A big bruiser of a glove.

I had another Geo. Reach "Chapman" model years ago that had dark brown leather. Different model number & style however. There is also a black leather version out there and one with a laced pinky. Geo. Reach Co. made some great gloves in their short history.

Found this at a Labor Day street fair. Rawlings Bill Doak, Model H, military issue, left hand thrower. Unfortunately the lining is cracked and piping is worn, but the front is very nice with strong stampings. Paid a whopping $10 for it.

For those who insist on seeing the back side, this one ain't pretty:

Found this Sonnett glove at a flea market yesterday. It had been on my want list for a long time - very unique web style from the 1960 catalog. Glove is in decent shape - wish the tag was better but beggers can't be choosers. It's a BM-2 model Billy Martin. Much more fun finding this at a show than on eBay.
