  • DETAILS

The Handpicked Series Billfold is made from the leather of a vintage baseball glove that our team hand-selected to be crafted into one of only 17 billfolds in this limited run of wallets.


The entire back panel and the two front card pockets on this billfold were hand-cut from a vintage glove chosen for its unique visual character. We combined those pieces with a middle layer of premium quality full-grain steerhide to provide structure and durability.

Billfolds Made From Gloves We Handpicked For This Series

What is The Handpicked Series? Very simply, it is a collection of wallets made from gloves purely because we thought they would be particularly beautiful. 


Given the attention-grabbing visual features on the vintage glove leather and the detailed leatherwork that goes into each and every wallet we make, we created this collection as a testament to the pleasure of crafting one-of-a-kind artisan accessories rich with the legacy of the game we love and the leather that tells its stories.


So enjoy this billfold. We certainly enjoyed producing it. 

How we make this BILLFOLD


STEP 1

SOURCE VINTAGE BASEBALL GLOVES FROM ACROSS AMERICA

Whether it is from working with the foremost vintage glove collectors in the world or hunting down single gloves that someone’s friend or family member had in the basement, we tracked down vintage gloves we knew would make beautiful wallets.

STEP 2

HANDPICK GLOVES BASED ON THEIR UNIQUE VISUAL CHARACTER

For this special limited collection, our team chose gloves with the kinds of visual features we knew would make for eye-catching, conversation piece wallets.

STEP 3

HAND-CUT THE PERFECT PANELS FROM EACH GLOVE

One-by-one, we hand-cut the panels from each glove that caught our attention for this collection and that we knew would make for a functional, durable wallet.

STEP 4

MACHINE SEW EACH BILLFOLD INDIVIDUALLY

With glove leather selected and cut, our leatherworkers crafted each wallet with artisans’ attention to detail by sewing each billfold one at a time.

STEP 5

STAMP WITH GOLD LEAF FC GOODS LOGO

No FC Goods wallet is complete until we stamp our logo in gold leaf foil into the final product. The gold leaf logo is both the perfect accent to the visual aesthetic of the wallet and a symbol of the craftsmanship we stand behind.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WALLET

LEATHER CONDITIONING

We include free leather conditioner in every Handpicked Series purchase. Conditioning your wallet helps preserve the quality and history of its leather– aged by weekend double headers and late night games of catch. The better you care for your wallet, the more memories you will create with it.

DID YOU KNOW?

We also offer an option where we use a minimal piece of baseball glove leather. Check out The Classics.
