Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth
Average Customer Review
Excellent glove. My 7, soon to be 8 year old son loves it. Huge step up from the Mizuno Prospect he had been using. Break in time is quick. Pull the trigger...you won't be disappointed.
Price is pretty steep for a youth glove. But that's just incentive to play more baseball and get your money's worth out of it. And anything that gives you an excuse to play more baseball is a good thing in my book!
This BC1050 youth glove is a great one. My son will be 7 this summer. The glove fits him perfectly now, and I would guess he'll be fine with it probably until he's close to 12. I have a Nokona 10 1/2" adult glove and was concerned that this being a youth glove would result in a pocket lacking sufficient depth for catching a baseball. I should not have been concerned. It looks like Nokona narrowed the web slightly and made the fingers a little more narrow than those on the adult size glove. The pocket depth is just fine for baseball and the glove is perfectly constructed to make a great infielder's glove. The looks are great, and the buffalo leather palm is really breaking in nicely already, and we've had the glove less than a week.
None noted so far. Don't anticipate any. Great glove, great value even at $199.00 for a youth glove. You get what you pay for.
My just turned 7 year old loves this glove. Took about a week to break in, and is ready for the season. Thicker leather allows him to catch harder balls without being afraid it will hurt his hand. Nice-looking design.
I suppose cost but there's not many other upper end gloves to compare to for younger players. Worth the cost for us because I think it should last him to at least 9.

Does Nokona make a First Base Mitts for a seven year old? What size do you recommend?
All of Nokona's First Base Mitts are adult sized. For a 7 year old, I would probably recommend a youth sized 11.5" First Base Mitt.
My son is 6 and I am looking between the BC1050C Youth and the Alpha Select S100. Between the two, which would you recommend and why? Also, at what age would he likely need to move up to a larger size? Thanks.
We recommend a 9.50" to a 10.00" glove for a six year old player. The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1050C) runs smaller and would be better for a young player. The Nokona Alpha Select S100 will range in size and could be too large. Typically players will move up to a larger size every two seasons depending on the size of the player.
Hello, both of my boys are left handed and they both played the outfield position. One will turn 10 and the other 7 next year. Is this the glove for them?
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth would be a great choice for your seven year old son. We recommend a slightly large glove for your ten year old such as the Nokona Alpha Select Series: S200.
America’s pastime. American madeTM. Since 1934, Nokona has been producing ball gloves for America’s pastime right here in the United States. Made with top-grain American hides provided by American ranchers, our leathers are tanned in the USA to Nokona’s specifications. Nokona gloves are still produced in the very same small town in Texas, where Nokona all started in the 1920s. They are made by Americans who carefully cut, stamp, stitch, lace, and embroider each glove by hand. Each Nokona has its own unique identity and feel, based on the careful selection of leather p.... read more
