The Last Baseball-Glove Maker in America

Nokona baseball gloves are made in Nocona, Texas using a number of different leathers including kangaroo, cowhide and buffalo. From hot stamping, to embroidering, to lacing, Nokona has been handcrafting ball gloves since 1934.

Great story.

Nice. $290 is extremely reasonable for the quality of workmanship put into that. This is how its ment to be.

Fred Miller says:

Modern gloves require zero skill on behalf of the wearer. Their the size of snow-shovel scoops. Who couldn’t catch a ball wearing one?

Uber Fye says:

Too bad they weigh damn near 50 lbs

Shane Prince says:

American name yet they choose a name/logo that looks Japanese… what the fuck?

984047 says:

As an American i just by the cheapest thing that does the job (it has to do the job otherwise its a waste of money), but i can’t spend $290 for a glove ill only use a few times when a great glove can be bought at $75

žaki09 says:

alex says:

M. Rees says:
