Best of March 2018

Postby mikesglove » March 5th, 2018, 8:56 pm

Always nice to start the month with a rare one.
A 1920's Reach "double face" sewn web glove sold for $350. The glove is not as flashy as the "tornado palm" model but both were Reach's top two gloves in the mid '20's. This one has some wear to the front/back, inner thumb seam and metal grommets. Despite that, I bet it was gone in a heartbeat.

A rare 1960's top of the line Rawlings model XPGP glove sold for $149. It features the "Dual Action Step Down Palm". It has been well used and might be what kept the price down.

Nice gloves, all three. I probably should have gone higher on the Speaker as I collect different models of him and have the original hang tag. I'm open to trading the tag in the right deal to the winner of the glove.

A really nice Alex Taylor base mitt sold for $125. It is endorsed and could be a number of players: Terry, Grimes, Bissonnette among others.
Mitt was made by WIlson. I almost pulled the trigger on this one. Maybe Jared got it. I like the glove thumb and wrist strap design.

One of my favorites, the Geo. Reach brand "Bruce Campbell" model. Great color combo and the softest leather. It sold for $103.
