Best of June 2015

An early Spalding crescent pad glove sold for a best offer. Nice white leather in great condition except for a little damage at the heel. That is an easy repair.

A 1960's Rawlings model TGP glove sold for $444. It's a "Dual Step Down Palm" model in fantastic condition. This six finger variety is highly sought after among collectors.

A circa 1920 sewn web D&M glove sold for $217. Originally a cream colored leather, the glove itself is in great shape. There is an endorsement on the front but it is faint. The cloth patch is near flawless.

This one has been knocking around the hobby for a while. It's a rare MacGregor Goldsmith "Johnny Sain" model Rl glove and box. The glove is a beauty and in mint condition. The only downside is the non-matching box. The seller accepted a best offer from the $950 asking price.

Hey Eric, Double D is looking for a unicorn, the elusive PM model, not the 400V. This was a beautiful glove though. Congrats to the winner.

A Reach "Babe Ruth" model RF2 sold for $565. The glove shows some wear but the leather and piping is still remarkably intact. Nice and bold factory stamps on the face, vibrant cloth patch.

A circa 1915 model AA1 Spalding glove sold for $382. Great markings in the pocket. The cloth patch unfortunately is very worn. One thing not readily apparent or mentioned in the auction description was the missing inner lining. The "World Series Model" stamp impression on the leather face is faintly visible inside the glove.

A 1940's Rawlings "Bill Doak" model H glove changed hands outside of ebay. The asking price of $569 was pretty much in line with this outstanding example.

A MacGregor "Willie Mays" model GC12 glove sold for $130. A popular collector model in great shape.

maybe the surface mold turned people off or rare HOF gloves are not commanding high prices right now. This Denkert "Monte Irvin" glove is near mint and with a little diligent cleaning will be a real stunner. It sold for $125

I was tempted to grab this one when it was first listed but despite being rare, it is just too far gone even at $19.95. It's a Nap-A-Ite brand from the California Glove Co. It has the double diverted seam patent of Reuben Raymond going for it.

An interesting Spalding glove. A sewn web model from the mid to late 1930's. Its large and has the wide body look of that era. Spalding made one sewn web glove into the 1930's, the "Babe Herman" model amid the other tunnel web and trap web gloves. This one doesn't have the heel lacing of a top model but still looks really well made. It was stamped "Professional Model" but there looks to be an endorsement above that stamping. I would be curious who that turns out to be. It sold for $125.
