Reminiscing a little

Going through some gloves to see what I may get rid of, Anna’s old custom Vinci was on the top shelf wrapped up, realized I’ve never taken any pics of it on the old Z. Tons of fantastic memories with this Vinci. This coming Christmas it’ll be 7 years old, I think?

Best Vinci I’ve ever had my hands on, period! I’ve never felt another Vinci that the leather comes anywhere near the Tan Kip on this one, not even close!

Thanks, down to one left I may move? My only problem is regret, I let guys like OsDad steal gloves from me only to seriously regret it later!
I can understand that. On our 10U team I am coaching the gloves some of these girls use are just plain sad. I have taken to buying nice gloves I can get a good deal on, breaking them in, and then selling them to one of the girls who needs it for usually well less than I paid. It’s a pretty awful business strategy, but some of the gloves these girls use I don’t think I could catch with so it’s worth seeing how happy they are when they get their first “real” glove.

Thanks. You have cornered the DFP market for high end gloves, but I think I have tried every glove under $100 there is haha.

Well that glove looks very familiar. My daughter still uses her Crenshaw Special to this day. Going on season three, and she still has a new A2000 sitting on the shelf but refuses to give up the Vinci yet

It's sitting on the shelf! Maybe I'll send it back to you as a retirement gift or a "You survived Anna's college experience" gift :LOL:
