This Negro League 100 Series Money Clip Card Case was handcrafted from the leather of an authentic vintage Ernie Banks signature series baseball glove. It is the only Ernie Banks Money Clip Card Case in this Limited Edition collection.


The front pocket, entire back panel, and money clip cover on this Money Clip Card Case were hand-cut from an authentic vintage Ernie Banks signature series baseball glove. We combined those pieces with a middle layer of premium quality full-grain steerhide to provide structure and durability for a functional everyday carry accessory.

The Negro League Career Of

In one sense, there’s nothing special about a good high school aged baseball player being seen by a scout and scooped up by a pro team. But when that scout is Cool Papa Bell and he wants to send you to play for Buck O’Neil, well, then it’s special.


That’s how Ernie Banks got to be the starting shortstop for the Kansas City Monarchs in 1950. After a two year Army stint, he got back to Kansas City in 1953, hit .347, and the Cubs pounced. Perhaps the very best team Banks played on, though, was after that 1950 season, when he barnstormed as the shortstop for the Jackie Robinson All-Stars, where he was teammates with Jackie, Roy Campanella, Don Newcombe, and Larry Doby, among others.

How We Made These Wallets

STEP 1

Source Rare, Vintage Signature Series Gloves

The gloves used for this Limited Edition series were some of the most difficult to find and expensive to acquire in the history of FC Goods. Because of the legendary names and the age of the gloves (no player in this series played past 1976, and most of these gloves are from the 60s and earlier), this was a challenge– but one we loved taking on.

STEP 2

HAND-CUT SWATCHES FROM EACH GLOVE

To celebrate the legends we’re featuring in this Limited Edition collection, our team made sure to maintain most or all of the player’s name from the glove in each hand-cut slice of glove leather so that every wallet in the series features that signature.

STEP 3

COMBINE WITH FULL-GRAIN STEERHIDE

FC Goods utilizes premium quality full-grain steerhide for the middle panel in every Limited Edition product to provide structural integrity and durable functionality.

STEP 4

MACHINE SEW EACH WALLET INDIVIDUALLY

With glove leather selected and cut, our team of leatherworkers craft each wallet with artisan-level attention to detail by sewing each wallet 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. It’s the perfect accent to the wallet, and a symbol of the standard of craftsmanship to which we hold ourselves.

Includes Leather Conditioner

How to care for your FC Goods Wallet

We include premium leather conditioner with every Negro League 100 Series wallet 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 longer you’ll be able to carry that history with you.
