Best of February 2020

A webless crescent glove sold for $2725. I like the leather crescent sheath visible on the inner palm liner. Most of them are canvas or burlap. The glove has a great look to it.

A 1920's Wright & Ditson glove sold for $299. I like this glove a lot! Super condition inside and out. The patent info on the face refers to curved leather stiffeners placed inside the finger stalls To mimic the shape of a baseball and aid in securing a caught ball. Cool!

An early hook and lace glove listed for $1199 sold for a best offer. It is a full web model with a crescent pad and looks to be in real nice shape. It's a rare one for sure.

A 1961 Wilson A2000 "Shooting Star" model glove sold for $950. This one is clean and has the features collectors love in that year, the outside finger loop, edge-u-cated heel.

A rare and early D&M glove box sold for $575.

A really cool Sonnett Dick Donovan glove sold for $40. This one's mint and hung around for a while on ebay. I thought it would go in a heartbeat. Maybe it was its lefty-ness, lol. Anyway, I love the joined finger stalls. This one makes more sense to me than the "double play" models.

A full web, buckle back glove sold for $430. Always a popular combination. This one has a nice antique look to it and is in good shape although on the small side. Looks to be a Western Sporting Goods glove made for Sears.

Wasn’t the white lefty marketed/sold as an Eddie Collins?

And are you suggesting that it was not an Eddie Collins, Mike? (No, I was not the buyer. Just curious)

No, not at all. Just being forgetful as per usual.
