Hi All,

A very learned glove collector directed me to this site. I found this glove about a week ago. It is a Rawlings catchers mitt. I would appreciate your imput on it. It is signed Perkins. It is in good shape.
Thank you very much

Hi

According to the Catalog Source Book, Rawlings made a catcher's mitt endorsed by Cy Perkins from 1925 until 1953! He must have been the Bill Doak of catcher's mitts. I would say the one you have is somewhere from the mid to late 1940's but I could be wrong.

If you want to know more about Cy Perkins you can read about him here:
