Some nice gloves on ebay to start the month.

A D&M model 106 catchers mitt box sold for $449. Incredible condition for a 1905 era cardboard box. I sold my 1960's plastic car kit collection recently and very few had boxes as nice as the D&M box.

Four really interesting Mantle’s sold in the Mile High Card Company Auction. Anyone else catch those? Not sure if they have already been in the hobby. Looks like someone got a steal on a mint Mantle first base mitt for just under $400. Though admittedly I don’t collect or know about the 50’s and 60’s stuff. Two other mint with box Mantle’s hammered at big numbers. But contextually I have no clue. Would love to hear from those in the know on these!

Thanks for posting. I don't follow other auctions. That mint DCT basemitt was a steal at $397. The mint model MM with box/hang tag sold for $3388. It sports the rare black/gold patch. Pretty much the ultimate for a Mantle collector. The fact it was $1400 less than the mint XPG26 with box($4788) is a head scratcher. The model XPG26 is a midline model. The model MM auction described the glove alternately as a MM5 and a MM8 model. Maybe that confused bidders. Anyway, here they are:

Those Mantles were gorgeous - the DCT was definitely a steal- tough glove to find in any condition.

That black Spalding full web seemed to go really cheap - I would have guess 300 plus. Good deal for the buyer

An early catchers mitt sold for $172. I believe it to be a Western Sporting Goods model. The condition was very good but the big selling point was the olive green leather.

A weird one! An early Mizuno glove with King patent lacing, a unique web and marked "Hornsby" in the pocket. Pretty cool! It sold for $203

A Pennant Ed Rommel glove finally sold on ebay for $650. Pretty close to near mint and a rare one. Nice!

A MacGregor Goldsmith Dixie Walker model HC with box sold for $199. A mint beauty that should have sold for more. The glove is more than likely a wartime issue because it is missing the cloth patch and brass logo button.

A mint 1964 Wilson "Shooting Star" model glove with box, catalog & hang tag sold for BIN of $900. Probably could have sold for more in a 7 day auction.
