Best of December 2016

Postby mikesglove » December 9th, 2016, 2:27 pm

I was really hoping to add this empty Rawling's glove box to my collection. I have a near mint GS mitt of that era that would have been perfect. The bidding blew past my limit pretty quickly. The $16.95 price written on the Sisler Rawlings box placed it in the mid 1940's. The auction ended at $288. The box needed some work but was all there.

A stylish 1920's base mitt sold for $85. It is marked "Semi-Pro" on the front and features a partially sewn web. It is in nice shape and to me, a good deal at that price.

A 1925 Spalding three finger glove sold for $545. It is marked "Big League" and is probably model TG. It shows some wear but overall in good shape. Always a popular style.

A sewn web Folsom glove sold for $205. A decent white leather model with a little wear. The factory stamps in the pocket were visible. Its big claim to fame was the tag. First one I have seen.

A Rawlings "Mort Cooper" glove sold for $122. A reissue by Rawlings sometime in the 1990's?

A sewn web Lowe & Campbell "Dave Robertson" glove sold for $180. May be a Wilson made glove. Markings on the face and cloth patch are stellar.

A Wolf brand base mitt sold for $162. A rare brand and tag for sure. The "Steerhide" stamp, webbing, wrist strap color and design seem to indicate another Wilson made glove.

A 1920's sewn web Minnesota Sporting Goods glove sold for $198. Another very rare brand. The glove shows wear but seems to be in pretty good shape.

An early '60's Rawling's TMH base mitt sold for $93. It is a Heart of Hide trapper model put out before the DCT model took over in 1962.

A MacGregor model KC1P glove sold for $88. Made in the same period as the Kangaroo hide gloves, this one is a "Prohide" model and apparently not as sought after. It is in flawless condition. You are not going to see many with the orange tag and also made in the USA.

A 1920's Reach model GA "King Patent" glove sold for $263. Shows some wear but factory stamps still legible on the front. The inner liner has seen better days.

A D&M "Chuck Klein" model G92 glove sold for $350. Really nice bold stamps on the front. I think this model had the D&M cloth patch hidden under the lace wrist strap.

A rare Wilson "Bob Feller" model 900 glove sold for $175. It's missing a tunnel web but those are pretty easy to come by. Markings in the pocket and overall condition is excellent.

This rare Wright & Ditson "Eddie Collins" glove sold for $350. I had a A.J. Reach model of this glove. This W&D brand may have come about when Reach merged with Wright & Ditson around 1929. The glove looks to be in nice shape. I have always liked the W&D tennis player logo on their patch.
