1999-2001 Jeff Bagwell Game-Ready Backup Fielder's Glove

Postby frikativ54 » January 5th, 2009, 5:58 am

Hey Everybody,

I'm a newbie around here, so I thought I would show you guys my only glove with any value. It is a Jeff Bagwell 1999-2001 era game-ready pocket-oiled Louisville TPX Model first-baseman's mitt - his backup gamer. I intend on acquiring some more leather, hopefully a black Bagwell glove, but I could never match some of the collections I see on this board. Anyway, here are the pictures of the Jeff Bagwell glove I just got. I would love to read your thoughts, and please let me know what kind of things I can learn about this glove from the photos alone.

The velcro is the only thing that doesn't work for me. Other than that I would keep it and not use it. It is quite a looker for sure.

Where did you get that glove? Very Nice piece of leather. I have been looking for a bagwell glove for years. I really wanted one of his early Rawlings models. Very nice find, and I do believe that Bagwell actually had velcro on his TPX glove.

Just curious, what is such a turn-off with velcro? :?:

Yeah, from looking at Getty Images, Bags had velcro on his TPX gloves. As for where I got it from, a guy was recommended to me by some Astros collectors who knows someone from the Astros. This was his Astros guy's last glove, so I can't help out with finding another one.

Plus, I hear Bagwell keeps all his actually game-used gloves, so a game-issued or backup glove is really the best you can hope for. I would like a black glove as well, but I doubt I'll find one. It's very difficult to come by Bagwell's stuff since he has retired.

I'm with you.

This glove is beautiful, but why did Bags like the Velcro? I just imagine all the dirt getting caught in there on a rainy day. Then the edges fraying after a season of use. Then, it just doesn't mix well with all the leather. Maybe its the plastic...yeah the plastic!

Anyway, my opinion. Otherwise the leather on this thing is a beauty!

Sorry, but I don't quite see your point with the plastic. What part of the velcro is plastic?
