Last updated: 14Apr2014

Sales Notes: I want each person to be happy with the purchase/trade and I realize that a glove is a very personal thing to someone who is going to use it. Therefore, my policy is that a prospective buyer/trader may keep the glove for up to one week after receiving it. If you are not happy with the glove, then return it for a full refund minus the postage (assuming, of course, that the glove is in the same condition as when you received it.)

 Glove Repairs: Many of you have written and asked me about repairing/restoring your old great gloves. Well, there is no longer a reason for despair. If you seriously want to restore your old gloves, especially Rawlings, then Kenny is the guy to do it. Up until Rawlings closed its repair shop last year, you would have dealt with Kenny at Rawlings in Missouri. Now he is doing it on his own. And I’m not just talking about minor stuff like cleaning and relacing; I’m talking about redoing the padding, rebinding, redoing the thumb and pinky loops that so often break, and (YES) relining those beater gloves that have 40 years of your acidic sweat in there! Now, you all have seen some of the ‘expert’ work done by other people out there. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud their efforts but you should really see some before and after pictures of Kenny’s work. It’s like you get your old glove back and you will then be able to use it for another 20 years. Enough: you see for yourself: goto: http://www.kennysgloverepair.com/ and please tell Kenny I sent you, ok? To see three before and three after pictures or Kenny’s work, click here.

 

Payment: I prefer money orders or cashier’s checks for payment but will also accept a personal check and then hold the item until it clears. If you are in a real hurry, I do accept payment via Paypal. (paypal/credit card: add 3%; otherwise no charge. Also, add 1% for foreign currency conversion.). You can sign up for Paypal at www.paypal.com .  Note:  I no longer accept foreign money orders or checks because our banks now charge a ridiculous fee to process them.

Sad Note and Warning:   Benny Ayala is a thief.  I regret to have to report to all you other glove collectors to be very wary when dealing with Benny Ayala, the former major league baseball player.  I sent him $1,200 for four mitts and he never sent the gloves even after half a dozen phone calls and emails.   Benny’s address is: PO Box 222, Dorado, Puerto Rico  00646 and his email is benny.Ayala.27@gmail.com  and  his phone number is: 787-526-8020. In fact, the only email I’ve received from Benny has been a link to a computer virus so I would also warn you against opening his emails! 
Glove collecting has been a great hobby and in all the years I’ve been collecting, I’ve only had one other such incident.  I hope this does not happen to you.
If you happen to see any of these mitts for sale, please let me know as they might be the ones I was supposed to receive:
Benito Santiago, Bengie Molina, Ivan Rodriquez and another Ivan Rodriguez.  Thanks.
