Diverse collection of store-model baseball gloves dating from early 1900s. All of the gloves display heavy use and are in Good to Very Good condition overall. Unless otherwise noted, all are right-handed gloves. Listed by manufacturer, the collection is comprised of the following: Reach (2): 1) Circa 1930 Mickey Cochrane endorsed pro-model "12A" catcher's mitt. The buckle-back glove features Cochrane's stamped facsimile signature along the top of the pocket and "Indian Face" design along the base. This was Reach's top-of-the-line catcher's glove at the time and one that is seldom seen today. This is the first example we have ever offered.
