Help dating Reach 4 BR

Postby tjai » October 3rd, 2017, 7:56 am

Hi All!

I've just picked up this great old Reach 4RB basemitt off eBay. In great condition under all that dirt and has a patent number laced wrist strap. I haven't been able to find a listing of it in the catalogues in the library. Anyone know what year might be? I'm assuming between 1931-1935 due to the strap.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The time period is right. Are you sure it is stamped 4RB and not 4AB? Alphabetically, it wouldn't be in the A.J. Reach section of the glove library. It would be under Reach, Wright & Ditson.
