Very rare 1950s glove, one of just two US-manufactured Jackie Robinson gloves ever found, possibly manufactured as a prototype.  It combines the popular JC Higgins brand with pro-stock Wilson features, including top-grade tanned steer hide leather, with "Streamline Kurv-Form Fingers" patent stamping on the outer pinky finger.  This is the identical design as the professional, game-used Robinson model that sold for six figures this past fall.  

The condition is simply stunning, with soft, supple leather, and easily legible stampings on the heel, pinky and palm.  Robinson's signature endorsement appears on the palm, very sharp and easy to identify.  The lining is in outstanding condition, as is the wrist strap and button.  Some minor restoration has been performed to replace piping around the wrist strap.  The lacing appears original.  Simply a stunning piece, a beautiful, rare Jackie Robinson glove.
