Description

    Circa 1929 Roger Bresnahan Coaching Used Catcher's Mitt. A detailed letter of examination from leading baseball glove expert Joe Phillips suggests that the offered D&M catcher's mitt model "709 Big League Special" was likely used by the Hall of Fame catcher during his 1929 coaching service to the team with which he won the 1905 World Series. Phillips notes that the model first appeared that year in professional format, entering the retail mainstream for the 1930 to 1935 period. The glove exhibits light wear with scattered spotting typical of ancient leather. It was consigned to auction by the Bresnahan family directly and is accompanied by their letter of provenance. LOA from Joe Phillips. Letter of provenance from the Bresnahan family.
