A 1920's Goldsmith "Jake Daubert" base mitt sold for $200. Well used but all there and in decent shape.

A 1950's Sonnett "Double Play" glove sold for $139. Well used but in decent shape with a unique style, legible markings and tag. Not often seen at auction.

Surprising to see this high quality McKinnon glove among a sea of kids models out there. It's a 1940's "Ernie Bonham" model in super condition.

A 1960's Sears "Ted Williams" glove and picture box sold for $355. Great looking NOS glove with a unique design. The two piece palm, spoke web, wingtip back and neat fastback style really set this one apart from the multitude of Sears Williams gloves out there. It looks to be all leather, high quality and I personally like the green dyed leather, lacing and grommets.

A mid 60's Rawlings model RL catchers mitt sold for $225. The first iteration of this HOH model is in unused condition. I read from an auction posting that Johnny Bench favored this model. He would order it from Rawlings with the wingtip(DE) back.

Darn it, didn't bid enough on either the Gehringer S&D or Sonnett Double Play! And yes, the McKinnon is a beast compared to most McKinnon gloves out there. Dude who made it probably got fired!

Thanks for your continued efforts on GOM, patents, and other forum feedback, Mike! One of the things I appreciate most about you is that although you've owned/still own some of the nicest and hardest to track down gloves, you still have an appreciate for gloves all over the spectrum (like that green Williams import). Keep up the great work!

I too missed out on the Gehringer S & D. I was hoping all the east coast bidders were sleeping. Flurry of bidding at the end.
