H1932 aka “560”
"Aint that a Dazzy?" A replica of the Ken-Wel Pro 560 used by Brooklyn's Dazzy Vance. The Ken-Wel Dazzy Vance 1920's and 1930's gloves were the most innovative designs of their time and considered to be the first modern baseball gloves. The Ken-Wel Vance Glove features are now found on all of today's baseball gloves. Try to find a baseball glove today without lacing through the fingers or welting (the stitching up the middle of each finger found on the back of the glove). You can not. In the 1920's most players and manufacturers believed that fingers bound by string would constrict play, not assist it. The acceptance of the laced glove wouldn't happen until the late 1940's and early 1950's when the Ken-Wel patent expired, other manufacturers copied it, and a new generation of players embraced the concept. Display in your sports collection or on your office desk. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Right Throw Only.

Evolution of the Glove
In 1880 the baseball glove looked like a cut-off work glove. Fingertips were still exposed in many early gloves. Padding was minimal. Catchers and first baseman usually wore a glove on each hand. Fielders usually wore one glove on his catching hand.
By the early 1900's the glove developed full fingers and looked like an open hand and felt like an oven mitt. Heels or padding on the base of the glove appeared to give a pocket so the ball would not fall out.
By the 1920's fielders' hands were still taking a punishment so a web or lace was added between the thumb and pointer finger. Catcher's mitts & First base mitts started looking more like a round pillow to cushion the blow of a hard throw.
In the 1940's gloves developed lacing between the fingers. The "three-finger" glove became a big hit. That same decade the first baseman's "trapper" appeared. What made the 'trapper" so different was that its shape was more advanced and easy to catch a ball than its cousin the fielder's glove.
By the 1950's actual deep "pockets" were being developed into the gloves with lacing and sewing that sculptured the padding. "Heels" were losing padding.
It wasn't until 1957 when the fielder's glove added a hinge that spawned additional modification such as closed backs and checkerboard webs in the 1960's. Not much changed in the next three decades.
