Best of April 2014

Postby mikesglove » April 3rd, 2014, 10:08 pm

Funny ebay description, a "Mr. New york" glove sold for $68. The front is fairly worn but the shield logo of Norman brand is partially visible. Regardless, it's a large, well made 1" sewn web model in overall decent shape.

A pretty nice Stall & Dean "Grover Alexander" Speed model glove sold for $285. Markings good in the pocket including the ball player stamping.

A stellar three finger D&M "Howard Ehmke" model G74 glove sold for about $750. A lefty model in tan leather with great markings, patch and button. The condition is top notch.

Thanks Mike for posting these!! especially the D&M 3 finger, I haven't seen that palm stamping for D&M before and helped me identify one of my typically well-worn oldies. A 4 finger lefty, but a Maranville!!

Glad to see the price for the GC Alexander, Doesn't "Stall & Dean Speed Model" Roll off your tongue in a seductive way or is it just me??

Now to get a "Speed Boy" D&M G43... I won't be able to run faster, but dang I'll feel like I can.

Did add my first Nokona to the stable, a G51 Pollet, Had a few Nokonas in the past, but my first keeper,Thanks JD, now maybe an Erskine and I won't feel bad when I talk to Joe!!

A Dubow "Peter Reiser" model 351 glove and box sold for $349. Just too nice to go the distance. Great NOS presentation. The glove looks first rate.

A lefty Winchester base mitt sold for $369. The high quality models like this one are not readily found. I like the dedicated web grommets on the thumb. The patch is good and solid overall condition.

Two rare ones. First a J.C. Higgins "Larry French" extended pocket model glove sold for $68. Condition not the best which kept the price down but a popular collector model nonetheless.

Second, An Everlast glove sold for $74. A KenWel design and the little tag by the wrist opening would indicate a "Dazzy Vance" model. Condition again is not great but I have never seen an Everlast "Vance" model before.

A pretty cool looking 1930's Spalding model A3 catchers mitt sold for $154. It's from the lower end of the catalog but this one is really pristine. The white/cream colored leather and black trim are eye catching.

A "Mickey Mantle" model MMP glove sold for $212. This is an early "Custom Bilt" model circa 1959 before the HOH version came out. There is another one selling for $400 on ebay right now and this one is in far better shape. Great looking tan leather, markings in the pocket and patch.

Hey Glovers, Been a little skippy in Dixie, hope all our Southern glovers are ok. Some really neat gloves posted this month, MMP mantle was a steal, and I missed a reach glove that had piping unsewn for $35, nice sewn web. It would fit in my collection, as I reckon mine to a share croppers compared to some Plantation Collections. Not complaining!! I'm a dandy farmer.

Anyway, spied the 1927 Stall&Dean Booklet on ebay that featured Grover Cleveland, Thats pretty cool!! and it was blown by a northern wind up over $150!! somebody post it on here for me please!

Yours in gloves, Drokester

An early '"Decker Patent" Goldsmith catchers mitt sold for $19. The sewn front looks good but the back is very rough. The logo is nice and there looks to be a cloth patch still attached. Despite the tears and missing parts, a pretty good deal.

Thanks for the posting of the GC Alexander pamplet, stuff like that really adds to a display and yep I'm jealous, Glad it is reunited with its glove, wouldn't mind a copy!! hint hint...

Hey guys look on youtube for Battle of the wilderness 2014, I was in that mass of Blue, It's O.K. as Johnny Reb won both battles. Got Papaws tractor running, still needs some work but hopefully good to go, It helps make me a REAL GOOD Farmer!
