Big Red Machine Glove Display

Postby DrJB » April 6th, 2017, 9:02 pm

Recently completed this display of my Big Red Machine gloves. Endorsed store models in lineup order. From upper left:

Pete Rose, Macgregor 675; Ken Griffey, Rawlings PG18; Joe Morgan, Macgregor M3T
Tony Perez, Macgregor BM3P; Johnny Bench, Rawlings HOH; George Foster, Macgregor G7T
Dave Concepcion, Rawlings R4000; Cesar Geronimo, Rawlings PG12; Don Gullett, Rawlings PG10

OK, Bench should be in the cleanup slot, but I wanted him in the center of this display.

Always looking to add more! Feedback appreciated.

Really interested in Rawlings R4000, RHT, for Concepcion.

As a lifelong Reds fan, I love this.
My dad played one minor league spring training with Rose and Perez before they shipped off to Geneva, NY (dad's minor league career fizzled later, he only played 13 games -- with a Senators farm club -- but still neat).
I'd really love to make a display like this, but I'm sure my wife would veto the deal.
Nice work DrJB!

Thank you! Incredible your Dad had a chance to play pro ball. This project has been a lot of fun, made even more enjoyable when others enjoy it as well. Thanks again.

I was able to pick up a LHT Griffey, so now I want to match the correct hand for Geronimo (LHT) and R4000 Concepcion (RHT). If you have either, let me know.
