Split Finger Gloves

1. Rogers "Rajah" Hornsby, Wilson 972N. Rogers was the greatest player in the National League and the second most famous in baseball after Babe Ruth during the 1910's-30's era. He played from 1915 to 1937 and likely cost himself over 1000 hits because he was a player-manager the last 8 years of his playing career. He batted over .400 three times and also batted .397, .387, .380 etc... His last year as a regular was 1929 when he batted .380 with 39 home runs. The next 8 seasons he allowed himself only 700 at bats combined while batting over .300 in all but 2 of those seasons. This glove is in excellent condition with bold labeling, smooth, pliable leather and smooth inside lining. The glove is very comfortable on a medium size hand. The coated cloth piping has wear but is intact, there are a set of initials on the wrist strap and there is a heart shape drawn on the back of the thumb. Excellent condition. RHT Ex/Mt $125 sold

2. Hugh "Losing Pitcher" Mulcahy, Draper & Maynard DG19. A super clean glove. Mulcahy had one of the more humorous nicknames in baseball, twice losing 20+ games with the Phillies in 1938 and 1940. He was an All-Star in 1940 despite leading the league with 22 losses. Hugh's biggest claim to fame is that he was the first Major League player drafted into the military during WW2. This glove has smooth and pliable golden brown leather, bold labeling, a nice Draper & Maynard button and no writing. The vinyl piping has cracking and the inside lining has wear on the heel. The glove has been professionally relaced. The glove is comfortable on the medium size hand. RHT Ex/Mt $55

3. Jelly SoRelle, Nokona G11. An outstanding glove with buttery soft and smooth leather inside and out. Has nice labeling, a nice cloth label and no writing. Jelly played 7 seasons in the Texas League from 1937-48. He was on the verge of making the Major Leagues with the St. Louis Browns after an excellent season with the Toledo Mudhens in 1941. Instead, WW2 happened and Jelly spent 4 years in the service before returning to the Texas League in 1946. This is a beautiful baseball glove. LHT Ex/Mt+ $65

4. Pee Wee Reese, All-American H137. A nice, large glove circa the mid 1940's. The inside lining has chafing and wear with holes up inside the thumb and 2 fingers, yet remains pretty comfortable on the hand. The facsimile signature is very light.

This glove has one notable flaw, one of the lacing tabs in the web was glued back on using leather cement. It looks perfect however would come off if it was tugged or caught a baseball in the web. The wrist strap button has been replaced, has worn coated cloth piping and there's a name written on the wrist strap. Other than that it has bold labeling and smooth inside lining and would be superb for display. RHT Vg+ $40
