  • I've just discovered a great collectors website that focuses on Baseball gloves. It is called the Baseball Glove Collector and features hundreds, if not thousands, of various vintage examples; including some 19th century mitts. Memorabilia of this sort makes for a great display. In fact, check out the "displays" section to see how other collectors have set up their own personal museums.
