Glove of the week: July 2 – July 8 (Ford, Spahn, Frey)

Postby burker72 » July 9th, 2007, 12:35 am

This past week saw a number of great gloves, and proof that there are still great buys on ebay...

A terrific Spalding Whitey Ford TraPocket Personal Model #1105 earned OrangeKrate (a fine ebayer by the way) $300 on 21 bids. The glove was only produced in 1961 and is a great example of the classic 6 finger design. I have a Jim Bunning PM TraPocket that I bought from OrangeKrate a few years ago and this one would have made a nice bookend for sure. Congrats to the buyer of this one.

From one HOFer to another, this HOH XPG3 Spahn model sold using BIN for $229. Honest, I went out to walk the dog for 10 minutes to think about grabbing this one, decided to buy, came back and it was gone. A beautiful glove, and living in Buffalo I should have bought it for sure (Spahn was born here). Remember, he who hesitates is lost (and outbid).

This Rawlings Lonny Frey LF model is an absolute beauty at a very fair price of $195. Another classic design, this glove is a bit darkened in the palm but appears flawless elsewhere.

hey mike that 1105 looks like original lacing (sans 6th finger zig-zag)

nice job on the "Big T-Trapeze" relace, i tried my hand at relacing a TG12 early on in my career and i don't think i got the exact pattern at the top

pretty tricky
