Alex Rodriguez has made some of his prized accessories available on a limited basis. Bats, autographed baseballs and even jerseys surface from time to time. Game-used gloves, however, are a different matter. Very few legitimate A-Rod game-used gloves have ever eddied into our industry. This Rawlings model Pro RV-23 glove was used by the youngest man ever to hit 500 home runs – Alex Rodriguez. This is the first-known 2007 gamer ever offered. Engineered from “heart of the hide” leather, this 12-1/4″ glove features “ballistic” mesh on the back. This type of material was built into the glove to make it lighter. His first gloves of this model did not carry the lightening feature.
According to glove expert Denny Esken, this model Rawlings glove was copied from the pattern that was previously used by third sacker Robin Ventura when he endorsed Louisville Slugger gloves. Esken went on to say that Rodriguez switched to this model in 2006 and also used it the following year.
The glove has a single-post dual T-bar web which is widened and incorporated with a dual hinge. The glove is well-tempered in the hinge area and it lies flat. Light to moderate use is visible. “A-Rod” is embroidered in black on the thumb (faintly visible) along with “Rawlings” on the index finger. Esken mentioned the glove was never passed down for subsequent use in the Dominican Republic. Rodriguez signed the glove “Game Used 2007 M.V.P.” in silver paint pen. A PSA/DNA full letter will accompany and authenticates the signature and inscription were A-Rod’s. Also included is an LOA signed by A-Rod stating this was his glove which he used in the 2007 season.
