Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series: 1949
Average Customer Review
I was a bit worried when ordering this glove, I already have a vintage model glove from a company called "Victory" that is made for play. There is barely any padding in it, where even playing catch with my 7 year old son stings my hand. I might as well wear an oven mitt. This Shoeless Joe glove is AWESOME! Tons of padding - no pain - and easy to catch with! GREAT PURCHASE!
It's made in Mexico. I guess it would be too good to be true if it was made in the States!

How is the leather quality of this glove compare to modern day gloves? Does the glove company beat up the leather so much that it is dry or worn out to make it look older?
The special aged antique tobacco leather used on the Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 would not be similar to the leather used on gloves today. It will be aged and worn through a special process to give it a more worn look and feel.
I'm thinking about using one of the Golden Age gloves on my high school team. Which would be a better glove this one or the 1957?Since there are only four fingers total on this glove I would put two in the pinky correct?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age series glove is really more of a nostalgic glove, made for casual catch and play. It is not recommended using these gloves in competitive high school play. If I had to choose one, I would use the 1957 as this has the most functional design. The two fingers in the pinky stall would be the best way to use this glove.
Does this glove have the same amount of padding as the 1957 model?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 will have very similar amounts of padding as the Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1956. The main difference will be the three finger design of the 1949 verse the four finger design of the 1956.
