Questions and Answers (3)

Have a question about the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1250BK? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

What is the difference between the BKF 1250 and the BF 1250 (BS 1250). Also, why do neither of these gloves show up on the Nokona website?
The only difference between the 2016 Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1250BK and the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BF1250CBLK (BS1250CBLK) is going to be the Nokona logo and the color design (the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BF1250CBLK (BS1250CBLK) is last year's model and the only glove pattern still in stock will be the all black model). As for why these glove are not showing up on Nokona's website, these gloves were JustBallGloves exclusives.
I"m interested in purchasing this glove for my daughter. I spoke with Nokona about purchasing a glove. They offered a 30% discount for veterans. Would you also honor that discount for this glove? I"m trying to decided between this one and the Wilson A2000 super skin, and at this price point any savings would be helpful.
Here at JustBallGloves, we offer a 10% veterans discount. However, if we were able to verify that 30% from Nokona on the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1250BK we can always offer a direct price match. As for those two gloves, this Buckaroo will be made with an extremely high quality kangaroo leather where as the a2000 will have Superskin technology.
Is there padding in the palm of this glove and what material is the lining made of? Am torn between this glove and the buffalo combo for my grand daughter.
The Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BKF-1250BK will feature padding in the palm of the glove. As for the hand lining material, we would not know what Nokona is using in this regard. With that being said, this is an excellent higher end option for someone needing a utility glove for more of a year-round schedule.

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.
