Catchy title huh? Sorry :rolleyes: but old school gloves make me smile!

USPS just dropped off Anna's Pro1000, my entire office smells like Horween heaven. I'm impressed, it's really nice, she's going to have fun breaking this one in! That Horween palm liner is worth the price of admission!

Yep, but that entire Big Red Machine lineup was my favorite! Johnny Bench & Dave were my two top favorites though!
A couple of years ago my wife got Reds tickets from a salesman at work, we get there and they bring most of the Big Red Machine out on the field! That was awesome. Big commemorative celebration, lots of game highlights from the 70's on the big screen. Talk about dumb luck on our part.

Concepcion used a 12 inch glove at SS? Wow.
Honestly I don't know the exact size, but it could have been? Glove sizes and specific models for pros have been skewed for many years, remember these superstars get any glove any way they wanted it. Bob at the SLCS made the Pro1000 specifically for Davie from what I've read.

I have a Don Morton Pro12TC that's a 12" Six-finger trap glove......most people don't realize that Ozzie Smith played SS with that glove, Yep a true trap glove at SS, but it was a 11.5" Pro12TC, not the 12" version that Morton's put out some years back.

The glove shown above used by Concepcion looks very similar to the one I used in HS and college. I want to say it was $125 or so (almost 30 years ago). I didn't pay that much though (don't ask how I got it for a cheaper price...)

I somehow lost that glove..went looking for it at my parents house when my DD started to play and it wasn't there.
