Description

The classic Nokona Buffalo Combo Series is back with a new look and same unbeatable quality. Nokona uses premium quality, select American Range Bison from ranches in South Dakota to construct these gloves. Buffalo leather produces the best of both worlds, soft and sturdy. Buffalo leather is renowned for its flexibility and supple feel. The shape of the glove is key, so Nokona has combined Buffalo with their signature Walnut Crunch leather. Walnut Crunch leather benefits from an old world tanning process that results in a uniquely patterned leather with a character and feel all its own. Walnut Crunch is one of the thickest leathers that Nokona produces and helps maintain the look and feel of the Buffalo Combo glove. This combination of leathers produces a robust yet supple glove. When looking for a top-of-the-line glove, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series should be on the top of the list. This versatile glove is handmade in the U.S.A. in Nocona, Texas for the elite player. Don't buy a new glove every year, get a Nokona and get a glove that will last far beyond your expectations. Nokona: America's Pastime. American Made! Free Shipping!

Pros: This is a great glove with top notch leather featuring the classic Nokona walnut and also their premium buffalo. Unlike the walnut glove the combo features the buffalo leather making the glove lighter and more mobile than the full walnut. This glove comes with great shape and forms well to your likings.

Cons: Not a great amount of padding in the palm which is yet a pro and a con depending upon the position you play.

Pros: just got this glove yesterday at a local sporting goods store and already love it, comes really stiff but that tells you that its well made. it seems like some companies dont make gloves as good as they used to. Nokona is definately not one of those companies.

Cons: the size runs a little smaller than some gloves but you barely notice, the craftmanship more than makes up for it

Pros: Easy break-in. This is a superb glove . I have used various lower price Rawlings gloves. And moved to a used Nokona Bloodline that was great and loved but since I didn't break it in it didn't quite feel like my glove. This feels like my personal glove. It fields perfectly, catches superbly and feels solid. It is by far and away the best glove I have ever owned. I tried the new Pro-Line, Bloodline and Walnut and this felt the best. Break-in was a breeze.

Cons: None yet

Pros: I keep seeing " not enough padding " You want a cushy catch or do you want to feel the ball. Only company that was willing to make a custom glove for me. I am missing my four finger on my glove hand. Still a great product

Cons: Didn't want to make me another since I am no longer in the minor league.

Pros: price: The price is very reasonable and actually priced very low for what it is, if you compare this glove to the other brands that have the higher quality glove line this one is superior in quality and price. this glove shapes well, easy break in, top quality leather. this Glove is outstanding, simply put the glove is outstanding.

Cons: none, some I have seen complain about the padding? well its because this model is meant to be a pitchers glove, and if you specifically ever look at or get a pitchers glove it does not have as much padding, as it is not needed, and is unnecessary weight, when on the mound you do not want a heavy glove.

Pros: I would recommend this glove to anyone who wants a well quality built glove you will not regret buying. The quality of this glove is phenomenal and made to last for years. My son really loves this glove along with his team mates. The glove is little pricey but well worth every dollar. It only took a couple of weeks of break in time with Nokona glove conditioner. I also wanted to give praise to this company "Just Ball Gloves". They are very responsive when ordering what you need and the shipping was amazingly fast. I have ordered from this company several times in the past and have had a great experience(s) with them. My business will always be with this great company for baseball products! Thank you!

Cons: None!

Have a question about the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC-1150M? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Would this glove be good for a HS second basemen and a pitcher. If not what other gloves would you recommend?
billy
The size and style of this glove makes it a great option for a High School infielder and pitcher. Based on you position and age a glove between 11.5 and 12 inches is typically recommended.
JH
Would this glove be good for a HS second basemen and a pitcher?
joe
An 11.5 or 11.75 inch glove would be a good option for a High Schooler playing 2nd and pitching. The style would also be good for either position.
John
Is this good for a 13 year old that plays travel ball but soon to play HS ball? Is it good for a shortstop?
Chris
This would definitely be a quality glove to use at shortstop and it is a good size to grow into and possibly use your entire High School career.
Brett
Does this glove have good padding in the palm area?
Mkey
This glov has average palm padding compared to similar gloves in the same price range.
Mark
Would this glove be a good choice for a soft and durable glove?
Mkey
This will be a very durable glove. It may not be the softest right out of the box, but it is a good, high quality glove.
JH
Wold this glove be soft, good padding, and durable? I'm really just trying to find a soft, durable, high quality glove. Would this be a good choice? If not, what would?
Mkey
This glove is very durable and has average amount of padding compared to other gloves of similar quality and style. It will take a little bit of time to break in because it is such a high quality glove. Other similar gloves that come to mind are the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Series, Louisville Slugger TPX Pro Flare Series and Akadema Torino Series.
JH
I have a 10 year old son that has been using an Easton 12" glove and would like to buy a nicer glove. He plays second base and outfield. Might pitch this fall also. He is average size. Would this be a good glove for him?
chad
At 11.5 inches, this would be a good utility glove for a younger player around your son's age. This is a high quality glove that will take quite a bit of time to break in (especially for a 10 year old) so be sure to plan on it taking several weeks before he's comfortable with it.
JH
Don't know what glove to get between the bc1150 or the pl1150 for secong base or all-around infield?
rickybobby
Both are high-quality, durable gloves. The Pro Line will be a little stiffer compared to the Buffalo which will be a little more game ready. However, the Buffalo Combo Series is known for its great flexibility while keeping its shape and fit over time. I can't tell you which to buy and both will be great utility infield gloves. Ths choice is yours.
TJ
I was wondering which glove would be softer, have better padding, and which one would be heavier? This or the Wilson A2000 1786DB?
Wm4
This is going to be a glove that will last you a very long time. It will take about a week to break in and will be a little heavier than most gloves in this size.
Brett
I am trying to decide between the Nokona Pro Line Series or the Buffalo Combo Series. I play both second base and center field. Which is a better all around glove? What are the pros and cons of each glove?
K.O
Both are high quality, durable gloves. The Pro Line Series will be a little stiffer and will require more of a break-in period compared to the Buffalo Combo Series. The Buffalo Combo Series will weigh about between .5 and .75 ounces lighter than a Pro Line of similar style and size. Neither is better than the other and it depends on your preferrence. If you prefer a slightly stiffer glove, go with the Pro Line. If you prefer a softer glove, go with the Buffalo Combo. As far as size, an 11.5 inch glove like this one would be a good utility glove for a player between 10 and 12 years old. A player around the age of 12 and older who plays multiple positions may be better suited with a larger glove around 12 inches.
Brett
How long does this glove normally last and is it good for 3rd base and outfield?
Aaron
There really is no set lifetime for a glove, they can last multiple years, this is going to be a very good option for a 3rd basemen and an outfielder
Sean
Would this glove work for junior high shortstop?
Plasticfilmguy
At 11.5 inches, it would be a good option that you should be able to use for many years to come in the infield.
Tyler
Will this glove be good for a high school outfielder?
Luke
At 11.5 inches, this may be a little too small for a High School age outfielder in my opinion. The most common size for a High School outfielder is 12.25 to 12.75 inches
Tyler
Is this a good for a 12 year old that plays 3rd base?
Letty
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) would be a great option for a 12 year old playing 3rd base. It is also a good size that will allow the player room to grow and is very durable so it should last a long time.
Jennifer
How would this compare weight wise to a Nokona Pro Line?
Caen
In terms of weight, the Buffalo Combo and Pro Line Series from Nokona will be pretty close to each other. However, the Pro Line will be just a little lighter in weight, but not by much.
Tyler
Is this a good glove for an 11 year old boy who plays everywhere in the field?
bob
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) would be a very good option for someone that will be playing all positions on the field. An 11.75 inch glove would work for that as well. Here is a link to take a look at an 11.75 inch option. http://www.justballgloves.com/products/size~11.75/?s=nokona
Tom
Is this a heavy glove?
Mdtg
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M is average in weight compared to other high-end 11.5" models.
Tyler
Which glove is better? This one or the Wilson A2000 1786 Model I-Web? I play middle infield and third base.
VENOMB3AST24
Both gloves would be great selections. The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) glove will feature buffalo and walnut leather. This leather will have long lasting durability. This glove is made in the USA. The 11.50" size is the typical size of a high school/college middle infielder. The A2000 will be made from Prostock leather which will be just as great as the Nokona. The big difference will be the web on the gloves. The Nokona will have the modified T-Web. The A2000 will have the I-Web.
Brandon
I have seen in other answers here that this Buffalo BC1150M is softer, lighter and easier to break in than the PL1150M Pro Line. But in the 12 inch models it is the other way around. Is this accurate?
Frank
That is correct, at 12.00" the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series gloves use a thicker grade of leather to support the larger glove size.
Kevin
What kind of maintenance needs to be done to keep this glove in good condition? I don't want to spend $260 dollars and not properly take care of and eventually ruin this glove.
Sorianofan15
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) would be kept in great condition if you apply a thin layer of glove oil during the break-in process. Then apply a thin layer before you put it away for the winter. Then once more after winter before your season. When not using I would keep it in your room where the temperature is always good.
Brandon
I have never owned a Nokona glove and I'm wondering if it's right for me? I play middle infield and pitch. I'm debating between this, an A2000 or a Heart of the Hide.
rays fan 3
All three gloves you are asking about are going to be very similar in leather quality, which is one of the most important features to look at when shopping around. The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) will run a little small, but it will be great for infield.
Noah
Is this glove big enough to use in the outfield?
Zack816
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) is too small for the outfield. We recommend a 12.50" model for an outfielder.
Kara
My son is 11, average size. Just wondering if this glove would be too heavy? Looks heavy, but sweet.
Teldo26
The buffalo leather used in the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1150M) makes the glove a little lighter compared to the all walnut series. The lightest glove is the Nokona X2 Elite Series ( X2-1150).
Kara
I am going into high school and really want this glove, I was just wondering if it is good?
t-ball
Yes, the Nokona Buffalo Combo (BC1150M) (AMG1150BCMT) is a very good glove for high school baseball play. It features the buffalo leather which will last for multiple years.
Sean
Is this glove easy to break-in? I play SS, what would be the right size?
FSU_23
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) will be pretty stiff. It will take a few weeks to break-in. The glove will be an 11.50" design and the perfect size to play middle infield.
Brandon
Which position is this glove mainly for?
Tyler
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1150M) (AMG1150BCMT) is primarily intended for utility infield usage in the 11.50 inch model.
Joe
How durable is this glove?
Tyler
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1150M) (AMG1150BCMT) will be created from Buffalo and Walnut leather which combine together to make a glove is flexible, yet still durable. With proper care, this glove will last a player multiple seasons.
Ben
Would this glove be good for pitching?
Tyler
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1150M) (AMG1150BCMT) is primarily intended for utility infield, such as a pitcher, as it features a Modified T Web and an 11.50" pattern.
Liz
What's the difference between this glove and the Nokona Pro Line Series PL1150? Which would be better for a high school 3rd baseman?
Tate
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) features an 11.50 inch pattern offering a blend of Walnut premium steerhide and Buffalo hide. The Buffalo hide is very soft and allows a quick break in period, and the Walnut leather allows long term structure and durability. The Nokona Pro Line Series PL1150M (AMG1150SXMT) will feature a blend of the Buckskin Cowhide and Sandstone leathers. These leather grades will be very durable, however they will require a break in period as well. Either model would be an excellent choice, however, some third basemen do prefer a glove pattern larger than an 11.50.
Joe
Is this glove good for 14U, 15U and 16U?
Z
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) is a terrific option for a 14+ year old middle infielder.
Jason
Is this glove a light enough glove to "turn two" with? I am looking for a glove that has a light enough weight to enhance a player's hand speed.
Will
Yes, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) will be light enough to "turn two" with.
Damon
My daughter is 13 years old and needs a 12" glove. Her hands are small and she has a hard time squeezing a normal glove. What would be a good glove for her?
tre
If she has a hard time squeezing an adult size glove, a youth glove may be a suitable solution. Youth gloves have tighter finger stalls and a smaller hand opening to create a more snug fit for a smaller hand. I would also recommend looking for a glove with soft leather as those have quicker break-in periods and are easier to close compared to gloves with high quality leather that are more stiff.
Angelique
Is this a good glove for a 9 year old?
John
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M (AMG1150BCMT) features a standard fit for an adult. I would recommend the Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove: S-200 Youth for a 9 year old.
Dan
Does the glove look like the one in the photos or the video?
Daniel
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC-1150M has changed appearance look over the years. The glove will now appear as that of which is shown in the pictures. Unfortunately the video is no longer an accurate portrayal of the glove.

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.
