Another Rawlings of the same era, this catchers mitt sold for $163 on ebay. It features a clever snap closure pocket at the heel to add more padding quickly. These show up on ebay from time to time. this is a pretty nice one with an intact cloth patch and overall good condition despite the obvious use over the years.

A rare Winchester "Dazzy Vance" model glove sold quickly for $225. Nice looking glove despite the crappy cell phone photos. The markings seem intact on the front. Not sure of the wrist strap button.

.Hey guys, this just looked cool and I have seen Military issued gloves before, but a Marine issue is new to me, and kinda neat. Anyway, give you guys something to ponder while I'm in the snowy southeast. I know there is a collector who is after the military gloves, Hope he got it!! any clue on what the numbers in palm mean?? I'm guessing Korean war? and I think it looks kinda Nokonaisky due to the wrist snugger on the back?? Seems to have the owner's serial number on the web, be kinda neat to reunite it to the owner/family member. Yours in gloves Drokester

I've had two USMC mitts (not as much stamping as this one) both trappers and I estimated, like Don did: from the Korean
war era. No sure who the manufacturer was on these. And that could have been marine's serial # on the web. I'm not sure any
USMC stampings were found on the WWII gloves as those were probably stamped USN (Navy) for marine use. Hard to tell the size on this one.

I have to throw this one into the mix. Babe Young Goldsmith with the semi decker patent back. There are two versions and this is probably the nicest version of either that I have seen.

Nice mitt Josh.

Double Dee, have you seriously not seen this one? It's been in the Gallery for eight years now, right? :D

Well Big Jim, Haven't seen it before??? why?? danged if I know?? Still wondering what those ####'s mean. If they had the Marine Bulldog in the palm, that would be awesome, but not the military way I suppose. But If I had to pick a service glove, that there would be the one!!

gettin a little tricky in Dixie tonite, HMMMM....Bigfoot prints in a snow covered Hayfield???? wasn't me!!

Robbie, hope power still on!!

Yours in gloves, Drokester ESQ.

I agree, the Goldsmith "Babe Young" is a nice mitt.

An early W&D "Star" model glove sold for $285. Seems close to near mint. A little conditioning to bring out the black leather color against the white leather piping and welting and this would be a stand-out example. The patch and markings are great.

three nice gloves from the same seller. First, a Pennant Brand "Lloyd Waner" glove sold for $230. markings on the front are good.

Second, A Wilson "Red Faber" model 607. A good quality glove. I think it would clean up to look a whole lot better. Markings on the front are all there.

Third, a J.C. Higgins "Grover Alexander" model 1672 glove sold for $355. It has a decent cloth patch but not described in the listing. Logo and markings on the front are clear. It has a nice style to it and good quality.

A sewn web Stall & Dean "Tris Speaker" model 0945 sold for $1200. It has really strong markings, one of the best out there.

The stampings remain remarkably clean and clear for a Speed model. If you’ve never handled one, S&D’s leather for these is butter-soft and the impact of the ball striking the palm quickly reduced the markings to smooth leather. I knew someone once who completely lost all the stampings with gentle rubbing during cleaning! Beautiful example that, in my opinion, sold for much less than expected.

A 1960's Rawlings XPG6H "Mickey Mantle" HOH glove sold for $282. Totally beat to hell but a store model version of Mantle's H-web gamer glove.

A 1950's KenWel "Carl Furillo" model three finger glove sold for $49. AN interesting model. It had to be one of the last to roll out of the KenWel factory before Allen Kennedy left for Florida in 1952.
