Antique Vintage Leather Catcher's Mitt Harry McCurdy C450 1920/30's Baseball:
(PLEASE SEE PICTURES)Harry McCurdy's stamped signature is quite legible on the heel of the mitt, as are the words "Genuine Cowhide" toward the tips of the fingers. Under the cowhide stamp, there appears to be a logo, but it is not legible. Under what's left of that logo, you can clearly see what I assume is the model number, C450. There is a leather strap on the back of the mitt that is fastened with a metal buckle.McCurdy played in the 20's and 30's, so this mitt likely dates from that period as well. It's tough to figure out the manufacturer since the logo is obscured by wear, but I have found another example of a McCurdy mitt with this same signature stamp and a very similar design including a buckled strap, but that mitt had a different model number. The manufacturer of that mitt was J.A. Dubow. I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty convinced this mitt is a Dubow as well.The condition of this mitt is pretty beat up, but the leather is intact and looking relatively good. All the padding appears to be where it should be, but it is obvious that at least part of the lacing has been replaced with a boot lace. The majority of the lacing is done with a light colored, flat string made of cloth - very similar to a shoestring - but I have seen some mitts with original lacing that looked similar, so I am not sure if that portion of the lacing is original or not.Feel free to message me with any questions.
