Need Help Identifying Recent Acquisition

Postby BBMDGUY » January 10th, 2016, 10:48 pm

I just came across this early glove with a unique back strap. Other than the bottom back strap that is stamped with Pat App For or pending- hard to read, no markings. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hey, cool glove. I know it well. It's a c. 1940 Honus Wagner Sporting Goods Honus Wagner model. Here's a clip of the 1940 catalog page. Hope it helps.

Hello JD. I believe its early them that because of the tunnel loops. I was thinking more like 1920's, but that's the limit of my knowledge.

Nope. Could be late 30's but we don't have any Honus Wagner Sporting Goods catalogs from the late 30's. Keep in mind tunnel loops were introduced in the late 20's and were made well into the 40's. The back strap is unique and wasn't used on any other gloves. My best guess would be '39 or '38 at the earliest, if HWSG made that model for that long. Not likely though.
