The is the very glove Pedro Ramos used to win the first ever Minnesota Twins game. He shut out the mighty Mantle & Maris New York Yankees of 1961. Wow! There's heavy use on this Wilson A2000 model 1130-CL Shooting Star loop glove, which was not available to the general public. The name “Ramos” is on the thumb in black over red paint. Provenance: This glove came from a clubhouse boy who would run over to a local Minnesota eatery to get Pedro bologna sandwiches (his favorite). He gave him the mitt at the end of the 1961 season and used the glove throughout the Twins’ inaugural year.
