Antique Baseball Gloves

Rare 1890 Catcher’s Mitt from the Fingerless Glove Era

ITEM 1: The offered vintage baseball glove is an Exceedingly Rare 1890 Catcher’s Mitt from the Fingerless Glove Era. This is to be considered a first generation catcher’s mitt. It is the style (shown above in the 1890 Spalding catalog) that would have been used on the non-throwing hand in conjunction with a fingerless glove used on the throwing hand. The mitt does NOT have a "pocket" and required both hands for catching. There is a light maker’s mark evident on the heel of the glove but it is not clear enough to determine the maker. However, the mitt is of the the highest quality and remains in exceptional EX-MT to NR-MT condition. An incredibly rare mitt in beautiful condition that will fill the void in even the most advanced vintage baseball glove collections! SOLD

1908 Baseball Glove, Reach Model 56, White Leather, Full-Web

ITEM 2: The offered vintage baseball glove is an Early 1900’s Full-Web Fielder's Glove. Made by the A. J. Reach Sporting Goods Company, this exquisite, antique glove is made of the highest quality, white buckskin leather. It is fully leather lined on the interior and features a brass button back strap with a perfect Reach cloth patch sewn on. Also featured on the back is a patent date of March 10th, 1908. On the front of the glove was stamped the model number of 56 and the Reach logo. It is quite remarkable that these markings are still intact as it would have taken very little use to have them wear away. This is a museum quality glove that would be a highlight for any vintage glove collection. SOLD

The rarity of this exceptional mitt cannot be overstated. First to be considered is that it's made for a left handed thrower and the standard of the time was 1 in every 9 GLOVES were made for a lefty... but the ratio was even more lopsided for the manufacture of catcher's mitts! Rarity factor number two is the amazing condition. The leather remains as soft and supple as the day it was made, inside and out!
