Best of January 2009

Postby vintagebrett » January 28th, 2009, 8:47 am

Still a couple days to go in the month but I thought I'd get these posted.

Wright & Ditson buckle back 1B mitt with tennis player tag - I've seen this tag a couple times and it always makes me smile - a tennis player on a baseball glove. The mitt itself looked to be well made and had an interesting strap. Final price $157.50

J.C. Higgins sewn web for a left hand thrower - this glove appears to be in excellent condition with a great tag. Final price $305.11

ImageImage

Wilson Rogers Hornsby "Lutzke Style" three finger glove. Second one in the llast two months. This looked rather clean despite the defects the seller described. Final price $460

ImageImage

Alex Taylor sewn web split finger glove. The pictures weren't too great but the glove appeared to be in great shape. If someone here picked it up could you post better pictures? Final price $285.01

ImageImage

Thomas E. Wilson sewn web with hole in palm. We see these gloves around once in a while - I find them very cool but unfortunately I didn't bid high enough to win this one. Final price $317.79

ImageImage

Reach 1" web split finger glove. This was a nice, clean model that did very well for the seller. Final price $289.50

ImageImage

There were some other interesting gloves during the month if other people care to share, that would be great!

These aren't mine - just gloves that sold on eBay that we highlight each month.

Oh sorry I didn't pay close attention. But you can still answer the question. You have an impressive collection.

Thanks for the compliment but I think quite few members here have more impressive collections than I do - they are just shy about sharing. 8)

I find my gloves from a variety of sources -eBay, online stores, other collectors, antique shows, stores, sport shows, etc.

Hi! So I know this post is 8 years old but I was wondering if anyone has come across the top Wright & Ditson base mitt in recent years? It's on my wish list and I would love to see if there are any out there....? Thanks!

Thanks Mike! Yes I have seen one on the listing there, great looking glove. I'm hoping to find one for sale/trade at some point! Thanks again and your restoration work is something else!!! Amazing!
