    Vintage baseball gloves

    Folks,

    I wanted to share a neat baseball shop with you all:

    https://www.instagram.com/hoosiervintagegloves/

    The owner of this restoration business, Kevin Howell, sources vintage gloves from all over and personally repairs and restores them. I bought a hutch 30 from him the other day (intending to bring it to an upcoming signing), and he brought the Yogi Berra catcher's mitt that is on that instagram page. Both are as close to mint as I have ever seen.

    It's neat to see antique gloves brought back to their former glory like this. Incredible to think about how players used equipment that is so different than it is today.

    Just thought I'd share!

    Re: Vintage baseball gloves

    I started getting ads for wallets about 6 months ago after I bought a new one on Amazon. Instagram was hitting me HARD with ads from a company who buys old vintage gloves and uses the leather from them to create wallets. I don't remember which specific company it was, and a quick google search shows that there are more than a few companies doing it - but I thought it was pretty cool.
