Late19th-early 20th Century Vintage Catchers Mitt For Sale
This Catchers mitt was given to me by my Grandfather in the early 1960s. He told me that he used it when he was a teenager playing ball. He was born in 1886, so I believe this glove is from the late 19th to early 20th century. It is used by both him and me as well as my uncles, but appears to be original in material. none of the stuffing is falling out, and all of the seams and webbing appear original. As far as I can tell it has aged very well, and the only damage is to the thumb where the leather has given way to years of thumb pressure as you can see in the pictures. There is no name of manufacturer on this glove, but I believe it is around 100 yrs old. From what I have seen this is a very nice collectable piece that will look good in a base ball enthusiasts collection, and just in time for the 2014 Base Ball season. What a find.
