DescriptionCirca 1987 Dennis Eckersley Game Used Fielder's Glove. Dennis Eckersley realized his flaws, made amends and reinvented himself in time to transform into a Hall of Famer. When most players are in their twilight of their career, Eck became baseball's top closer. Baseball's best closer of the late 1980's and early '90's, Eckersley gifted this "Rawlings Pro 6HF" model glove to trainer Barry Weinberg when he was extinguishing rallies in the big leagues. The glove, with a manufacturer's date of October 1987, shows good overall use and is properly prepped for use. The tan offering is constructed from "Heart of the Hide" leather. "43" is markered on the thumb while "Eckersley" is written on the middle finger. Joe Phillips' letter of authenticity makes reference to an image of Eckersley from his days in the Windy City. Letter of provenance from Oakland A's/St. Louis Cardinals trainer Barry Weinberg. LOA from The Glove Collector, Joe Phillips.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
