Pros: This is an exceptionally well-made glove. My last first-base mitt was an older bloodline, and lasted about 15 years of wood-bat-league play. This one seems to be even better made. It will take some work to break in, but in a top of the line glove, serious players know that is not a con. It means durability. This glove is slightly lighter than my old steer skin only bloodline or my Rawlings pro-preferred, I'm sure due to the thinner (and tougher) kangaroo leather. If you don't know about kangaroo leather, pro motorcycle street racers use it for their protective full-body leather suits. It is the most likely to let you keep all your skin, and also happens to be very light. Of course, this glove is made by the last great American glove company, and I consider that alone to be well worth the money.

Cons: You've got to be kidding. None.

What size is this glove, 13"? How long have Bloodline gloves been made from kangaroo leather?
The Nokona Bloodline Pro Series Baseball First Base Glove: P3 features a 12.50" size. Ever since the Bloodline Pro series was first produced in 2015 it has been made with kangaroo leather.

Is it stiff or floppy?
The Nokona Bloodline Pro Series Baseball First Base Glove (P3) requires little break-in and is made with an extremely durable Kangaroo Leather Shell. So I wouldn't necessarily say that this glove is neither loose nor stiff, but rather finds itself in a very comfortable in-between stiffness.
What's the serial number/ year of production for this glove? Do you have any 2018?
Curt Hansen
The Nokona Bloodline Pro Series Baseball First Base Glove: P3 was first released in 2015. The product code would be "P3" but we do not have a serial number. As of this posting, we have the P3 in stock.
My son has been trying to break this glove in for 3 yrs. He has played with it, mallet beat it and oiled it (a lot). The hinge and pocket are broke in but he cannot get the part where his fingers are to loosen is still as stiff as new. How do you get this part of the glove to loosen up?
If the glove has been used consistently for 3 years, I do not really know of a different method for breaking in the glove. The only other thing I could really think of is making sure that it gets used every single day for a few weeks to a month. I would guess that if this Nokona Bloodline Pro Series Baseball First Base Glove (P3) is used that frequently, it should soften up.
How does the Bloodline P3 compare to the Walnut first baseman’s mitt? Is the P3 the same as the Bloodline Edge on Nokonas website?
Sammie J
Yes, the P3 is an older version of the Bloodline series that Nokona offers, now called the Bloodline Edge on their site for the newer models. The P3 will be made of higher quality leather overall than the Walnut line. The P3 will take a bit longer to break in, as higher quality leather will be stiffer overall.

About the Brand

Joe Phillips writes about his visit to Nokona. It was like sitting in at the plantation party in Gone with the Wind or maybe gazing from the grandstand at the “Field of Dreams” while the Black Sox players tried to work out their idled muscle kinks. And, I was gently reminded by the lines in that movie while I dug into a delicious plate of North Texas barbecue: “threshing crews eating at outdoor tables. It continually reminds us of what once was, like an Indian-head penny in a handful of new coins. . . You talk a good dream.” And here I was. . . graciously invited into this magical and charming “Field of Glove-Making Dreams” in former Comanche Indian land at Nocona, Texas. It was a warm August evening, basked in a golden harvest moon, while friends and the Nokona family paid its kindly southern regards to two of their own and two of America’s finest but relatively obscure glove makers, Bobby Storey and Elvin Ray “Ab” Lemons. You see, the pair had just completed fifty years of time-honored employment with Nocona Athletic Goods, the last of the all-American made ball glove company's. The occasion brought echoes of past successes and human contentment, but in Nocona today you still experience much the same American texture of yesterday and perhaps a glimpse into tomorrow as well.

The two stately gentlemen were being honored in a way that could have taken place in the same manner when they first reported for full-time work at Nokona, in 1952, or back even earlier, in 1933 when the company started making sports equipment. During a brief and informal presentation at the celebration, Nokona’s new sales manager called the two glove makers “Legends - because that’s what their ball gloves stood for, American know-how and pride taken in a best-made product.”

A man of few words but a marveled craftsman who could literally conjure a sows ear into a playable baseball mitt, Mr. Lemons got up and fondly recalled the several men he worked with through his half-century and of the training that had been passed along to him from his old bosses.

His counter part and just as talented, Bobby Storey, had filled in at just about every job at Nokona. Bobby, the son of the sporting goods founder, R.E. “Bob” Storey had most recently served as president and now chairman of the board of Nokona. Though past retirement age like Mr. Lemons, he’s now serving at one of his favorite roles, that of ball glove designer.

At a time for employment in this country when five years is considered a long tenure with the same company, Ab and Bobby are not even the first to complete a half-century journey with Nocona Athletics. The now deceased Jewell Brickey, hit that milestone in 1993, after joining the company during World War II. That’s the kind of devotion that employees forge into this glove-making outfit. A devoted and sustained tenure here is not rare. Last year the company advertising, displayed along with Storey and Lemons, three other employees who had garnered 40 years with Nokona, Warren Clary, Bud Meekins, and Melvin Weedin.“

I don’t have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball”, wrote W.P. Kinsella. And the most constant of ball glove makers has been Nokona, and the men and women there who keep alive the tradition of American craftsmanship of ball glove making. The spirit of glove-making is still alive and well in Nocona, Texas.
