“My brother Allie had this left-handed fielder's mitt. He was left handed. The thing that was descriptive about it though, was that he had poems written all over the fingers and the pocket and everywhere. In green ink. He wrote them on it so that he'd have something to read when he was in the field and nobody was up to bat.”
Author, The Catcher in the Rye
Sourcing vintage baseball gloves and turning them into leather goods is what we do, but sharing the story behind each wallet is why we do it. While going through our latest collection of gloves, we came across a catchers mitt with a name and phone number scribbled into the side. After more digging we realized had dozens of gloves that contained signatures, addresses, phone numbers, and even old girlfriend's names.
Each glove in this collection is over 50 years old, which made it difficult to read the faded writing, but we managed to decipher a few. After scouring the internet, social media, and phone books, we spent days calling and emailing every lead we had. After a few weeks, we found Donald Strash, the original owner of a glove that he hadn’t seen in over 50 years. Mr. Strash's reunion with this treasure was like nothing we had ever seen.
For all of us at FC Goods, what we do is more than just a business and more than just baseball, it's a connection to the lives and memories in each glove that we get to experience and share with the world. The signatures on every glove belong to someone; but just because they were not found does not mean they are lost.
The result is a one-of-a-kind collector’s item for your pocket. Everything we produce at FC Goods was curated by the world’s number foremost authority on baseball gloves and inspected by our production team to ensure a truly unique and functional wallet. For us, it’s about giving new life to our favorite artifacts and constructing timeless leather goods that honor the memories, history, and heritage of America’s greatest institutions and pastimes. At Fielder’s Choice Goods, the legacy is in the leather.
