Pair of Salesman's Sample Mini Gloves and Mini Ball

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $232.00

Two rare mini baseball gloves and a mini ball. These precisely made miniatures of actual baseball equipment were created for use as either salesman's samples or promotional pieces. The first is a right-handed fielder's glove, model "G10" produced by Draper & Maynard. The circa 1920s miniature glove, measuring 4 x 4 inches, is a perfect scaled-down replica of the company's full-size glove and features the familiar D&M trademark logo stamped in the pocket. Accompanying the glove is a tiny, leather-covered baseball, also bearing the company's logo on a side panel. The second glove, similar in size to the first and also a right-handed fielder's model, is more modern in design and most likely dates from the 1960s. The detail is extraordinary. The manufacture's stamp "Convoy by Yien" appears in the pocket and the name "Convoy" is stamped on the back wrist strap. Ideal for display, these are, in their own small way, show stoppers. Everyone who sees these little gloves likes them. This is a fascinating group of these rare and very interesting vintage baseball miniatures. All of the items display moderate wear and are in Very Good condition overall. Total: 3 items (two gloves and a ball). Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$300. SOLD FOR $232.00
