Looking for Wilson A2020 Al Kaline glove

Postby Rsa923 » January 1st, 2020, 11:30 am

This was my first real baseball glove, would love to find one 50 years later in good condition.
(I had first posted “looking for an A2012” but that was a similar left handed model.)

Hi Bob,
Perhaps you'e seen these already but there are at least two A2012s for sale on ebay. This one looks to be in good condition but has pretty steep list price of $150:

This one is much more reasonable at $24.99 but has more wear and tear:

Good luck tracking one down!

Thanks! Should have specified that I was looking for a glove for a right handed thrower...

Are you sure it was an A2012? There were a lot of different Al Kaline models over the years but from a quick scan of the old the Wilson catalogs, the higher end right hand throw Kaline models were A2014, A2010, A2020, A2024, A2004, A2064. The left hand versions were always two numbers higher - A2016, A2012, A2022, A2026, etc.

This was a good and helpful point.
After doing some research, it appears my “first real glove” was the Wilson A2020 Al Kaline, with the distinctive rounded heel I remember vividly.
The A2010 had a different type of heel.
I will update my subject line as a result. Many thanks for pointing this out!
