That was an interesting 3 finger that came out of Canada. A few years ago another interesting 3 finger came out of there. This one didn't have all the bells and whistles, but it did have an interesting full web pattern. The winner must have one heck of a collection if you see the stuff posted on JD's site. Wow!

I rotated the glove counter clockwise and focused in on the stamping. Does that look like a signature above the Reach stamp; maybe beginning with "C" ?

Just wondering...Any ideas?

It's possible. I'm guessing it's the Reach Logo like the one on this Canadian Bush League Reach.

I thought at first the glove was in the early 1920's time period of the Goldsmith outseam model TB webbed finger model. But this ebay glove has the eight metal web grommets more of of a late 1920's into the 1930-40's tunnel or laced webs. I even thought this design may be in the time period of the 1940's Wilson outseam models. I also looked at the model number above the "Reach" stamp. It may say JD, although it is really tough to see. The glove has very stubby fingers compared to the other Reach "Jimmy Dykes" models. The extended pocket with the strap joining the stubby fingers has certain oddball characteristics of a softball glove. Is that possible?

Yes that was my glove Ricky. All the Reach gloves here i have seen above the symbols say REACH. I'll try and find a better pic.

Mikesglove this is the issue i have finding gloves up here in Canada...most of them are softball gloves. Sometimes hard to distinguish.

Well, it certainly has no trace of that tell-tale crescent padding we're so used to seeing on old time softball gloves. Looks more like a sort of prototype or custom built kind of glove. As wide as it is, that's a tiny spec of a web piece, too. Suggests hardball to me. Fun to imagine this one in action.
I do recall back in the late 50's family trips up to Canada in the summer. We used to get totally caught up watching night after night of really serious softball games in a little bandbox ballpark in Cobourg, Ontario. These guys were good.

On the Reach 3-finger model above. Bet that's "Chick" Galloway Reach "EX" model of the '30-'31 time period. :wink:
