Description

    1991 George H.W. Bush Signed Glove. It's a well-known fact that the first President Bush was captain and first baseman of the Yale University baseball team just after World War II, though only his most fervent admirers could possibly know that the President favored Rawlings "The George McQuinn Claw" mitts in the field. Offered here is a perfect reproduction of that very glove, an exact match to another presented to the President by our consignor, a Senior Glove Designer at Rawlings. A perfect black sharpie signature from the President has been applied to the back of the glove, making for a unique and very personal display. An included photocopy of an 8x10" photograph pictures the President flanked by our consignor and Richard Ashcroft, who holds the presentational glove in his right hand. The photo was signed to the Rawlings employee by Bush in thanks for the gift. Finally we have a signed letter of authenticity from our consignor, on Rawlings letterhead, attesting "This is a replica of the George McQuinn Claw which President George Bush used in college and still kept in his desk at the White House. While presenting him with the new one in 1991 on a campaign tour of Missouri, he signed this one for me." LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
