Shoeless Joe Gloves give a player the quality, feel and style of the gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. You can choose glove models used in the first half of century in the Golden Age Series or today`s models in the Professional Model Series. The Shoeless Joe gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Shoeless Joe gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through their breaking in process that leaves the Glove with a beaten up and `Game Worn` look and feel, of a broken in glove. Thus each glove is unstructured giving it its own unique feature. Players can choose to play with an old time or modern day web without having to change to another model. A great play is lived only once, but your glove, you`ll keep it forever. If you end a game with a clean uniform our gloves are not for you. Shoeless Joe: When it Was Just a Game! Free Shipping!
add_circle_outlinePros: Great looking glove. Good start on the breaking in process. Love the look of old time baseball.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Needs a lot of work to be able to use the glove especially for a young player. Thought we would order and use that weekend to play but being new to baseball....I was very unrealistic.
add_circle_outlinePros: Has a real quality feel to it. It is definitely a well made glove. It is somewhat more soft than some other gloves I have bought for my son recently.
remove_circle_outlineCons: While it feels somewhat broken in we it came, it still needs work. My son has used it in practice for about 2 weeks but is not ready to use it in a game. I use shave cream with Lanolin to soften it. It just needs more use to be ready for a game for my son.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Way to lose, not quality leather, very thin, awkward hand strap. Overall this is a "tee ball glove" at best. Will not stand up to any real heat such as line drives or hard throws. Bad, glove would never recommend or ever purchase again.
add_circle_outlinePros: love my glove it was game ready that day.
i wouldn't trade it for any other glove.
PS. to all you younger kids out there the pinky and ring fingure of a first basemen glove is supposed to be stiff
remove_circle_outlineCons: hard to find a place to relace the glove
add_circle_outlinePros: I had my doubts about this glove, but they have been alleviated. I'm using this glove for pro ball at 1B this season. This glove only took a week of stretching, two cream treatments, and one catch session and it's game ready.
Very cool looking.
A little adjustment to the thumb and pinky lacing made my hands more comfortable. (I have very long fingers)
You can go with pinky and ring in one slot or spread them out.
The pocket lacing lays flat for fielding straight out of the box. I prefer this for a 1B mitt.
Well, all seems good so far, after some game action, we see how it goes.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Made in Mexico. (but that's not really a bad thing)
Single hinge lacing. For those that want double hinges, it may be possible, but this glove is not manufactured this way.
Lacing on back of the glove is reversed (but I can live with it)
Inside thumb holder is not long enough. For those with long fingers, it will take a little break in to avoid the rubbing/blistering on top of your thumb.
All options that we do have are one our website. When we have the left and right hand throwers in stock, those options will be up on our webiste.
My son is 10 years old and has played baseball since he was 4. He is an experienced player, travel ball, major league (little league level) and all star team. He is starting to settle in on positions since he is left handed: pitcher, outfield, and first base. He has never owned a first base mitt and this would be his first one. LL does not allow a glove over 12". Should he be ok with this glove until he reaches high school?
A 12 inch first base mitt should last a 10 year 3 years or so until he reaches high school age. This model will be very soft and easy to use from day one. If he likes a softer mitt then this would be a good option.
What country are these gloves made in?
These gloves are made in Mexico
Looking for a good mitt for a 6 foot 3 high school player. Will a 12 inch mitt be too small?
It might be a little small for him. But everyone's preferences are different. Keep in mind that if the glove you choose doesn't fit the way he likes, you have 100 days to return it, and we can try another size if needed.
How good is the pocket on this glove?
It's good. Standard depth and pretty durable.
How is the padding on this glove?
The 2600FBTT has an average amount of padding for a first base mitt. It will have adequate protection from hard thrown baseballs.
If this glove is not what my son wants or likes after a weekend tourney can he return it? Within the 100 days of course.
Absolutely! All of our gloves come with a 100 day money back guarantee. You are more than welcome to break the glove in and even use it a little bit. If it is just not working for you, you are more than welcome to send it back to us for a full refund or exchange.
I can't decide on this glove or the Nokona Walnut Series 1st baseman mitt. Which one should I choose?
Both the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt and the Nokona Walnut Series: N80W First Base Mitt would be excellent options for you at first base. The main difference is that the Nokona is 13.00 inch model and the Shoeless Joe is 12.00 inches. Here is a link to further compare the two gloves.
Is there a 12 inch model for youth age 10-11?
Unfortunately, I do not see the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt in a Youth model. I was able to track down this for you though: http://www.justballgloves.com/product/mizuno-prospect-series--gxf101-youth-first-base-mitt/7193/
Is the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt for a male or female? Is this a 13 inch or a 12 inch glove?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt is a baseball glove. It can be used by either a male or female baseball player. This glove is a 13 inch glove.
What is the best First Base Mitt for a 17 year old high school player looking for a back up glove?
As a 17 year old High School player this glove would be perfect for you as an everyday mitt or as a backup mitt. It is hand rubbed with Old Time Ingredients to soften the leather. It will have a game ready feel from day one with a game worn look as well. The Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather will be very soft. The webbing on this Mitt is unique. It will feature the Tennessee Trapocket design.
How well would this glove work for softball (modified fast pitch)? I'm 6' tall, 230 lbs. with big hands.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series is a great glove. It happens to be 13 inches. Since you have big hands, the Nokona Buckaroo Series: SBM100K Softball First Base Mitt is 14 inches, which happens to be the biggest First Base Mitt we carry.
Is this mitt big enough for men's softball? It appears to have a shallow pocket. Does the Tennessee webbing compensate for that?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt is 13.00" and should be large enough for men's softball. The Tennessee pocket, once broken in, is actually a deep pocket.
Why is there not a left-handed model available?
We are currently out of stock in the left handed thrower in the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt. They will be listed on the website once we receive more. You can also call 1-866-321-4568 to be put on the out of stock list to be contacted when they are back in stock.
I am 13 and playing high school B-team baseball. I was wondering if this would be a good buy?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 2600FBTT First Base Mitt would be a great choice. The 13" may be too large for an undersized 13 year old. If you have average to above average hand size this should work very well for you.
I am trying to decide between these 2 gloves: The Shoeless Joe Professional Series:2600FBTT First Base Mitt and the Akadema Torino Series: ADT57-12 First Base Mitt. My son is almost 16, 6'2" inches tall and is playing JV High School ball. I would like to get a good glove. Any suggestions?
Those are both great mitts. You might also consider the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Pro Mesh Series: PROFM19MX First Base Mitt.
I am a left handed 14 year old with a larger sized hand. I was wondering if the 1300FBTT would be a good first base mitt for me.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1300FBTT) is a good mitt for a player of your age. It may require a bit of break-in period for the glove to form better around your hand if it is larger but should work just fine.
My son is 13, 5'11" and 170 lbs good size kid. Do you think this would be a good glove for him?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1300FBTT) would be a good mitt for a player your son's age and size.
Is the glove too big for a 12 year old hand? He does have a Shoeless Joe Professional Series (3200CM) Catcher's Mitt.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1300FBTT) First Base Mitt has a 13.00 inch pattern and we recommend a 12 year old first baseman to use a 12.00 inch model. We also recommend using a 32.00 inch Catcher's Mitt for a 12 year old.
Will this glove fit a grown man? Will the pocket hold a 12 inch softball?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1300FBTT) should fit an adult male hand and should be able to hold a softball if broken in with softballs rather than baseball. It is, however, a more baseball specific model.
Is that first base mitt big enough for senior softball?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1300FBTT) could work for that style of play. You will want to break it in using softballs rather than baseballs to make the pocket wide enough.
Does this mitt come with the carry bag like on the web site for the main company?
No, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt will not come with a carry bag.
What's the free gift here if it's not the carry bag?
The free gift included with the purchase of a Shoeless Joe glove from 12/14/16-12/31/16 is the free tote bag.
Is this glove heavy or light?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt is going to be heavier than a normal glove because it is a First Base Mitt. Comparative to other First Base Mitts the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt will feel a little lighter than average.
My son is 6'3" and is in 9th grade. Is this 13" First Base Mitt a good fit for him? I know he will be about 6'5" soon.
Based off the information you've provided, I think the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt would be a good option.
Does this mitt have the XRD foam in it?
Yes, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt has the XRD foam.
What size is good for 10 year old, 188lbs?
Typically speaking, a 10 year old first baseman will use a glove around the size of 12.00". However if your player has larger hands, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1300FBTT First Base Mitt at 13" could make for an excellent option to continue growing in to.

(1) - First remove any existing dirt by wiping the glove with a clean, dry cloth. (2) - When clean, rub a small amount of conditioner into the leather with hands or clean cloth. (3) - Work it into the web, palm, laces, inside of the glove, & any other area that has become dry or is starting to crack. (4) - When finished, place your glove in a warm, dry area (70 - 90 F) & allow the leather to absorb the conditioner for 24 hrs. (5) - Re-treat your glove when you notice the leather is starting to dry out. Prior to the off-season, apply a light coat of conditioner to keep the leather from becoming brittle.
