Found at antique mall in Burlington, North Carolina over last July 4th holiday. A bargain at 12 bucks! Dirty, but super shape. USA glove. Shown "as-found".

That's a great buy on a glove like that.I have a Wilson 2802 I've had since high school and it's my favorite glove I've ever owned.I've used and abused it for 20 some years and the guy I got it from had it for about 10 years before me and it still looks and feels great.

These were the top-of-the-line Wilson first base mitts. It is a USA-made glove with thick, heavy leather. This thing feels virtually bulletproof!

The mitt was found buried at the bottom of a box full of common, crappy imported gloves. Wish I could find more like this one!

bbjunkie: Post some pictures.
I grew up in Ann Arbor. Wish I still had my LHT Wilson 1b mitt. I have no idea what model it was--pre A2802 though.
