First of all, I wouldn't use the Dr. Jackson's on light colored leather. It would just darken it too much unless that was the object. On the Rawlings, I didn't use any conditioner on the white leather. I used it only on the dark inner lining and piping. I used an old tooth brush on the Rawlings and brushed it good. That worked remarkably well on the buckskin in getting rid of the dingy look. I was careful not to use it near the markings on the front. For that weird stain on the front, I used a 320 grit sandpaper and buffed it again with the brush. For the markings, I used the edge of an x-acto knife and scraped around the letters. That was a little tedious. The glove was really nice to begin with and had a ton of potential.
