Best Yard Sale finds

Postby Thudhugger » May 24th, 2007, 1:18 am

I find it really thrilling when I come across older gloves at garage sales. I'd like to hear your best finds from neighbors' garages.

I got this near minty Tommy Holmes with full silver for $2.00 last summer. I told the gal that it was in real nice shape for it's age (that's as close to telling her it was a steal as i'd go) but she said she was moving and didn't want to haul it with her to Boise. So I humbly lightened her load. Picked up a nice youth Cooper catcher's mitt for my nephew and a near new adult Lance Parrish model for myself.

Wow, they did! a bit dark, the glove is very soft inside, I have no knowledge of the brand, it feels like a child's glove (vinyl piping) but it's a big glove. The only flaw I could find is the whisper light paint flecks on the back side.

Not bad for the price.
