A sewn web Goldsmith glove sold for $206. Weird that sellers use oddball categories to sell vintage gloves. I would think this one could have sold for more. You know the D&M glove sale price above was just a guesstimate because it finalized off ebay. Probably went lower than a grand. I really prefer this Goldsmith over the D&M. Both are the same era. The Goldsmith has some defects but you cant beat its je ne sais quoi (my college french course coming into play, hah!).

A rare and early sewn web Wilson "King Patent" glove sold for $263. This one is past the point of restoration but has a great played in vibe to it. Someone really loved this glove. Just couldn't part with that liner even though it was replaceable. Hah! The tag has the early oval Wilson logo and seems to be in pretty good condition. I wonder if Jared snagged this one. Pretty sure his collection is missing a name sake King Patent model.

Once again, Mike just knows me too well. His Spidey senses are tingling. I'm kinda hoping the leather is still supple enough to restore the glove. I'll know as soon as it gets here.

So happy you got that one Jared. Now I don't have to feel bad for not trading you mine.

Hey, I wanted to share with you all what Mike T. did for me a long time ago. I had the only TEW King Patent at the time but it had a brand new lining in it. It was expertly done but was just too new looking. Mike had that one in his sights for some time and thought it was a shame that it had a new liner in it (and was not shy about letting me know, ha), so when he was restoring one of his own, he saved the old original lining for me. We counted the number of eyelets to make sure it was a perfect match and it was. He had me send it to him and he swapped it out for me along with the laces. I couldn't have been more pleased. There is nothing like using original parts or old materials when working on an old glove. Sorry Mike, not trying to advertise that you are in the restoration business cuz you're not but wanted everyone to know how happy I was and how cool it was of you to fix it properly for me. I appreciate you.

Here are the before and after pics.

Thanks JD! That was an interesting project. I think the leather on Jared's glove could be rehabbed with some sort of conditioner. That's what I would do anyway.

And...the D&M full web that “sold for $1000” is now back on eBay. For $1049. Assuming it is the same seller, but not sure.

eBay only archives sold listings for about three months or so, but WorthPoint is a cool site if you're not familiar with it. They archive eBay listings - including photos - as far back as ten years (unfortunately getting the sold prices takes a subscription, and the rates are geared toward power users, not dabblers). If I'm on the fence about something it at least lets me gauge condition & rarity. (And once or twice I've used it to verify if something's a quick flip.)
"So. It seems like you're in trouble."
"Yes, Babe Ruth signed that ball."
"George signed this?"
"George Herman Ruth? Yes."
"I take it back. You're not in trouble, you're dead where you stand."

A couple of rare Wilson gloves. First is a 1958 "Shooting Star" model that sold for $322. Seems like a bargain considering it's a first year model. This one could easily be restored to top condition. I wonder if Brett or JD got this one.

Second is a circa 1967 Wilson model 2005 glove that sold for $327. This one is a near mint beauty.

I did bid on the 1958 a2000 but didn’t win. I agree that it will clean up nicely
