I was actually looking for some examples of a full round/integrated thumb catchers mitt. I started a Google search at 1910 and worked back to 1890 looking through team photos and individual catchers. There were a lot of images to look through. The U. Michigan photo popped up as I was at 1895. I was stunned by the clarity/high resolution of the image to say nothing of the white button back mitt. Right now I have the Diamond brand Lajoie glove, the Brogan mitt and this new one on my must have list. I hope to acquire them in the coming weeks. :wink:

I bet they are in the same barn/ggarage attic that my Vermont label glove is in!

I'm pretty sure you'll find your Vermont glove first! 8)
