DescriptionEarly 1970's Lou Brock Game Used & Signed Fielder's Glove with Photo Match. He's best remembered for the blazing foot speed that earned him the steals crown (since claimed by Rickey Henderson), but Brock put that fleetness to good work in the outfield as well, where he used this MacGregor glove in the early 1970's. We have unearthed a photo of Brock wearing this exact glove in the 1975 team yearbook. The photo match was most likely taken during the 1971 season based on the jersey's crew neck - the only season they used that style. The missing MacGregor logo on the wriststrap perfectly matches the glove which is in Brock's hand in the yearbook. We will provide images on-line. "20" is written on the thumb and "Brock" appears near the pinkie - albeit faded. The player name matches up favorably to the yearbook photo as well. Four laces are missing near the bottom of the webbing. The glove shows excellent overall use and is signed by Brock inside. Great pocket wear. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph).
Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - up.
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.
