Lot 5: Late 1980's Barry Bonds Game Used Glove
Auction Date:10/18/2006 9:00 PM EST
It wasn't too long ago that Barry's record-setting performances at the plate were matched by his prowess in the outfield. During the late-80's and 1990's he set the baseball world on fire with his explosive power and sneaky quickness. Eight times he was a recipient of the Gold Glove Award (90-94, 96-98) following season after season of dramatic catches and acrobatics on the lawn. Offered is his black leather and nylon Wilson "ED 12" glove used during his years as a budding megastar. Signed and written with his number "24" in silver sharpie, it exhibits exceptional use, most noticeable on the palm where the stampings have been pounded away and the entire inner surface is worn to the point of being faded. The entire body is very flexible yet its leather has retained its soft and supple feel. A sensational piece of game used equipment, complete with Bonds' authenticating hologram.
