It's not often a really distinctive, early, no doubt fielders mitt shows up at any auction, ebay or otherwise. This one was pretty cool looking, very squat shape, sewn web and nice buckle back. Originally a white leather and despite some darkening in the pocket, in nice vintage condition. It sold for $1582.

That fielders mitt was quite the piece! They definitely don't pop up very often and this one looked to be in pretty good shape. I think the high price is not only indicative of the glove, but the lack of high quality pieces that have been out there lately. The market is definitely strong for early, high quality pieces.

Three to finish off May. First is a "Billy Southworth" glove that sold for $399. The model number would indicate a J.C. Higgins glove. The markings in the pocket were strong.

Second is a 1930's D&M three finger model, possibly "Howard Ehmke". The glove is in great shape. It sold for $355.

Third is a 1940's Stall & Dean "Ted Williams model. It sold for $216. Shows wear but in decent shape. Its big claim to fame was an interesting back panel/finger stall design unique to some S&D gloves of the time.
