Vintage baseball gloves
All opinions are my own. Both my father and grandfather were very athletic and loved sports. My dad was also athletic but cancer ended his life at age I do know that he watched sports and enjoyed the sports section of the paper every day, particularly on Sunday. A few years ago my mother gave me four vintage baseball gloves that belonged to my dad and granddad.
I used to take them to school to show my 7th graders and the kids always enjoyed seeing them, particularly since the style of baseball gloves has changed ificantly over the years.
I recently pulled out these baseball gloves to share with my trainer who played baseball for Old Dominion University and who is a huge baseball fan. He enjoyed seeing them and since the gloves were out of the attic, I took the time to research each glove. I wondered if my grandfather played baseball in high school or college 1920s baseball glove found one answer in my attic thanks to one of his college yearbooks. There he is second row, second player on the baseball team. He could have also played baseball in high school in Middletown, Md. Here is granddaddy with the sophomores, incorrectly listed as P.
T Ahalt of Middletown, MD. Until I got married, we had the same initials, PEA. My dad was Paul and I was named after him. My aunt let me know that grandaddy also played football for Roanoke College. He coached most sports at William Byrd in the 30s before he became the principal. He had one football team that was undefeated. My aunt recalls that the undefeated team had a 50 th reunion in the s and that my granddad looked the youngest in the team picture!
I looked in several of his high school yearbooks to see if he was on the baseball team but he was not. He played football, basketball, and did track, but no baseball.
Perhaps he played on little league teams growing up. He was the general manager of the Red Sox until This baseball glove was a real mystery to me until I got my super sleuth friend, Suzanne, involved in the search for information about it. I believed it to be a handmade baseball glove made in Roanoke, Virginia based on the markings on the glove but I could find no information about it.
I could find no information on the Internet about this glove maker.

Graves-Humphreys was a distributor of tools, hardware, agricultural items, paints, oils, and glass. The company was also popular with Roanoke youth as the premier provider of sporting equipment and team uniforms. This glove took me the longest to identify since the tag was torn off. After spending a lot of time and doing a lot of clicking, I discovered that it is a Sears baseball glove.
They were married in and started dating sometimes after when my mom finished college and moved to Warrenton to teach.
I know my dad helped to coach football in his batchelor years and I think he also may have played baseball. Oh, well! Perhaps my aunt can add to this story by telling me what she remembers about my dad or grandad playing ball.
Very cool. Thanks for the inspiration! Sweet ….
