A 1965 Spalding "Roger Maris" model 42-201 glove sold for $185. A $43 glove back in the day. This one shows a fair amount of wear but it's a rare one featuring the "Full Control Palm".

A 1932 D&M "Earl Clarke" model G35 glove sold for $149. Another rare one and overall in real nice shape.

A 1935 D&M "Chas. Ruffing" glove sold for $74. Shows the downside of leaving gloves to auction. It's much nicer than the price reflects.

The upside to an ebay auction for the seller: It just takes a couple people who really want the same item.
This Hutch "Duke Snider" model 54FR glove and box sold for $318. I've owned this model and by far the nicest Hutch glove I've ever come across.
About as high quality as you will find.

The down side of a BIN on ebay for the seller.. This Rawlings "Mickey Mantle" model MMP sold originally as a $285 BIN and flipped within a week for $650.
I've owned this model. It is the last of the MMP variations before the XPG6 was introduced. This late era MMP had an awesome feel and was my favorite Mantle glove.

A D&M "Walter Johnson" model G40 glove sold for $710. An all around great glove. I like the player logo in the palm!

The seller listed it as a late '20s model but the Johnson graphic first appeared in the 1929 D&M catalogue with a vertical tunnel loop web. A laced web version with a V back and buckle strap appeared in the 1932 catalogue. In 1934, a laced web with an open back appeared. This glove is most likely from 1933-34.

A really nice black leather D&M sewn web glove sold for $165. Can't quite make out the model number. There is a faint endorsement above that.

It could be the G83 from 1922.

An early 1900's Reach crescent pad model 100 catcher's mitt sold for $1200. Looks to be in super condition. You don't find many with the factory markings so clearly stamped.

Now That was funny! And yes,the last thing I probably need is another Riddle but how could I pass on the only factory second marked "imperfect" I've ever seen?! Plus, I had a good collector friend send me the link so its really his fault.

A couple other notes on other gloves, really like the Wright Ditson black labels. Don Doke was that you one the Dizzy Dean? You have all the others sO i figured. JK.
