Best of May 2018

Nice to start the month with a few rarities. A 1920's Christy Mathewson glove sold for $1750. It was made by Goldsmith for the retailer Folsom Arms & Sporting Goods. At least that is what the logo stamped looks like. The glove is in great condition.

A rare 1930's Wilson "Phil Todt" base mitt and box sold for $175. I didn't think this would last long, The mitt appears to be near mint. I like the webbing.

For the condition minded collector.
A 1940's "Dick Bartell" model sold for $127. I like this one. I think it is an OK Mfg. brand.

An interesting mitt snuck through for $35. It looks to be a Stall & Dean mitt made for another brand. The cloth patch is missing but the elongated stitching shape narrows it down to possibly three. It could also be some private label brand. Cool mitt though.
