A mint Nokona "Joff Cross" G33 glove and box sold for $140. This was my favorite. A top quality, great looking glove! May be a military issue given the lack of a cloth patch and generic steel button. Could also have been made for a private label retailer.

Latest from Mears. A Pre-1908 Spalding sewn web glove sold for $637. The glove is in great condition. Some seam repairs and no visible markings on the face.

A cool looking mid '30's D&M "Hal Schumacher" glove sold for $149. A low end model but has a lot of style. Missing the webbing.

A Reach "Cecil Travis" model glove sold for $49. Another really stylish glove with generous pocket, stubby fingers and extra wide wrist strap.
Surprised it lingered on ebay for a while. Pretty much a bargain.

An early crescent base mitt in a lot of 4 gloves sold for $1000. It's in decent shape but missing the buckle and wrist strap. Originally an auction format, the godfather called and gave the seller an offer he couldn't refuse.

You just knew this deal was destined for the scrap heap.

The weekend usually brings out some quality auctions.
A 1950's Spalding Yogi Berra model 1443 catchers mitt with picture box sold for $143. It's a rare "Turtle Back" model, complete and in great condition.

A twofer auction: A D&M base mitt and Spalding "Club" model 2A catchers mitt sold for $213. The D&M is a high end sewn web model with the pebbly look of Elk leather. The Spalding makes up for its low end status by being in outstanding condition. The front markings are great and the back is super clean.

The best IMO was this Bulldog model glove. $68. Made in Mexico by Wilson. This one is an extra large near mint example. Love the pristine white leather interior.

A late '30's Reach catchers mitt sold for $119. Unfortunately no factory markings on the face nor a ventilated back, but the snap back feature is pretty cool.
