Pat Moran's legacy will always be guiding two National League teams to their initial pennants: the 1915 Phillies and 1919 Reds. Still, the native of Fitchburg, Mass was a formidable catcher, who compiled a career .279 batting average. This huge, professional-quality mitt is circa 1910, when Moran was donning the tools of ignorance with the Phillies. The glove itself is a relic with heavy damage from use and time. There are remains of a patch on the reverse. The glove descended directly through the Moran family. One can only imagine the pitchers he caught and the opposing batters he faced. Moran also caught for the Boston Braves and Chicago Cubs over a 14-year career. Comes with an LOA from the Moran family.
