It’s not just a wallet. It’s the legacy and love of America’s pastime in the palm of his hand. That’s why the first thing so many of our customers do is hold the glove leather to their nose and breathe in the memories.
Because every vintage baseball glove is different, bearing the marks of being aged by years of competition, no two panels of vintage glove leather are ever the same.
Unlike so many gifts men get, the Classics wallet will get used every single day. And because we apply artisan leather craftsmanship to premium full-grain steerhide by sewing every wallet one-at-a-time, it’s an accessory that’s built to last.
The easy-to-wrap white box with gold monogram logo opens up to display not only your wallet, but a card explaining the glove leather and a free container of leather conditioner. Because a premium quality leather good should be presented beautifully.
“I purchased this wallet for my husband's birthday. To say he was THRILLED is an understatement! In the middle of his celebration he whipped out his old, tired wallet and immediately stocked his FC Goods one. Then he promptly passed it around for his guests to ogle over. Like a kid on Christmas morning! What a delight!”
“I purchased a wallet as a gift for my husband, who's a HUGE baseball fan. It's beautiful quality and came nicely packaged. He loves the wallet and can tell how much attention to detail was paid. Everything fits snug inside, he's even excited about how the wallet will wear over time.”
“This was a birthday gift for my husband. He absolutely loved it and showed it off to all of his friends all weekend. And now I get to go buy a new bag!! EVERYBODY WINS! Great quality.”
FC Goods works with everyone from large-scale collectors to everyday baseball fans to source vintage baseball gloves. Each bears the coloring, marks, and even unique baseball glove smell that only develop from being aged by competition.
Once we have acquired the vintage gloves, our leatherworkers examine each glove, identify sections that display unique baseball glove character, then hand cut those swatches one at a time to use for your wallet.
The back and middle panels on each Classics Billfold are made from full-grain U.S. steerhide– the same durable, premium quality leather used to make modern baseball gloves. Full-grain steerhide is not just functional either: like all of the highest quality leather products, it ages with a patina that perfectly complements the vintage glove leather.
With all the leather prepared, our artisan leatherworker team goes to work individually sewing every Classics Billfold. The result is a leather accessory exhibiting the craftsmanship and quality that can only be achieved by working one wallet at a time.
In 2012 in Long Beach, CA, Jon Brong started what he thought would be just a fun new hobby. Inspired by his admiration grit and hustle that defined baseball’s Golden Era, he accumulated a few vintage gloves and promptly took a knife to them.
Why cut up old gloves? Because Jon’s passions also extended to craft leatherworking and premium functional accessories. He loved style and he loved quality. So he began to create his own utterly unique vintage glove wallets right there in his garage.
But a funny thing happened as he started to give them out to a few friends: the requests poured in from more and more people around him, and that hobby became a small business.
Since then, FC Goods has grown to bring vintage baseball nostalgia, contemporary style, and artisan leatherworking to thousands of customers who share our passions. With gloves acquired from across the U.S. and wallets handcrafted in the Dominican Republic– one of baseball’s worldwide capitals– we’re as committed today as Jon was back then to those same values.
It’s as much of a passion project for Jon and our team today as it was when it started. And we sincerely hoped you– or the person to whom you’re gifting your FC Goods order– loves your wallet.
