Turned out nice (except for the bonus endorsement from Geo. Kassner).

Turned out real nice! That one looks ready for a game!

As much as we collectors hate ink on gloves, I always get a chuckle out of the fact that MacGregor had that special place on the thumb just inviting the player to write his name on the it! And, mostly, they did. You really do seem to find more old Mac's with the name filled in that ones without it.

Orange lexol only. After I cleaned it, the leather was almost fuzzy. The remaining dirt is now in the leather. A little lanolin and for $8 it's a decent glove.
