Lot 528: Rabbit Warstler Game Used Glove with Photograph
This Rawlings glove used by the veteran infielder from the 1930s shows terrific use and was most likely on Rabbit's hand for several of his 11 big-league seasons. There are vintage repairs to the back of the fingers and in the pocket. The lot includes a large photo of Warstler using what appears to be this very glove while playing for the Indians (minor league) in 1930, just prior to his call-up. Once he made his debut for the 1930 Boston Red Sox, Warstler was a fixture up the middle for the Sox, Philadelphia A's, Boston Bees and Chicago Cubs, with whom he finished his career in 1940.
