Default Glove rework question.

My wife has an old rawlings glove that she played with about 20 years ago. It's not bad as far as the laces go but it wouldn't hurt to be redone. The worst part of it is inside. It feels nasty to put your hand in it! It's all cracked up and the finger stalls feel really bad. I dont know if it had some kind of liner in it st one time and it has broken down or what. Is that something that can be fixed? I dont know if the glove is really worth anything or not but I was thinking it would be cool for my DD to play with it since it was her moms glove when she played. Anyway if anyone has any ideas let me know.

Talk to Dirty 30, this sounds like it's right up his alley.

DIRTY 30 is the man. If anyone can fix your glove, it's him.

I have gloves that are as old as the one your talking about. One of them is still my gamer. He is getting it at the end of the season for some TLC.

Dirty does great work. Couple of his examples are just almost unbelievable improvement.

Well I got the glove out and looked at it again. Its pretty bad, the inside is the main concern. It seems there was some material to separate the finger stalls that is pretty tore up needs to be replaced. Its going to be a little more than a condition and relaxed job. I will try to get some pics up of it. I think I need someone who can take it apart and replace the bad parts in it as well. If anyone knows someone who can do it let me know.

If the glove doesn't have dire sentimental value, just buy a another one of the same model. The work that you'd like to have done will cost a lot of money.
