Large, top quality split-finger adult-sized glove from the 1940s is, in all likelihood, the only model ever endorsed by two Negro Leaguers.  Ramon "El Profesor" Bragana was a superstar Cuban baseball pitcher and outfielder in both the Negro League and Mexican League.  He was elected into the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame in 1959.  Bragana's endorsement is stamped into the leather to the left of the heel.

Lazaro Salazar was a player and manager in both the Cuban professional league and the American Negro League.  He was the winner of four batting championships in three countries, and won more than 150 games as a pitcher.  The glove bears the name of Lazaro Salazar Deportes of Monterrey, Mexico, likely a Mexican sporting goods company of the era.  The glove appears in excellent condition, with sharp silver stamping on the heel, supple leather throughout.  The reverse of the thumb exhibits some abrasions, and some fading writing can be faintly seen on the wrist strap.  The lining is in outstanding condition, and most of the lacing appears to be original.  An outstanding, dual-endorsed glove, featuring endorsements from two Negro League players.
