Incredibly Rare 1910s Ted Kennedy

Incredibly Rare 1910s Ted Kennedy "Pita" Mitt (ex-National Baseball HOF)

Not to be confused with the politician of the same name, Ted Kennedy retired from his playing career after the 1886 season, before pioneering baseball equipment and pitching techniques for future generations. This is a prototype, one of the original gloves manufactured by Kennedy and is considered to be the "original" catcher's mitt. It has a buckle back and individual finger holes but the catching surface is flat and solid, leading to the "pita" nickname because of the visual similarities. It has the original price tag of $1.50 connected to the strap by a string, and was on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Stamped on the rear of the thumb, "Ted Kennedy's Amateur Glove-Mitt, Can't Drop Them," the glove is in VG condition and presents even better - this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this museum-caliber piece.
