Just Your Average Big Pile of Gloves

Postby vintagebrett » August 27th, 2017, 7:08 am

Had the opportunity recently to acquire a large group of gloves. Got them home the other day and had some good weather to sort thru them outside. Although there was nothing early or high end in the group, it was a super fun to sort thru. There were some brands and endorsements I hadn't come across before. My kids were good helpers - we sorted the huge pile into brands and then broke it down into type of glove for companies that had large pile. The gloves take up 44 plastic bins! Right now I'm in the process of organizing everything into a spreadsheet so I can have record of what was in the group. 99.9% are going to be for sale so if there is something specific you are looking for, let me know via email (playokantiques@gmail.com). The collection is very heavy on 1950's-60's gloves - there is nothing high end, early, etc. and condition is all over the place.

That is the coolest thing ever! I love seeing that. Was the seller a glove collector? If not, was just wondering what kind of guy would have that many gloves. Hope you are having fun with them.

He was a cross between a collector/dealer/hoarder - he mentioned buying a few of the gloves thru the newsletter years ago. I was hoping my Vermont label glove would be in the pile but it wasn't meant to be.

Crazy amount of gloves you've got there, Brett :shock: Hope there are some rarities or oddball endorsements in there.
