Description: Rare Richie Ashburn professional model baseball glove c.1961-62 (Paul Hill Collection Provenance). Rawlings professional model TG15 baseball glove retaining its original Rawlings label on the back strap with interior stampings intact. The glove shows exceptional use throughout while remaining in original condition. The offered glove was obtained directly from Richie Ashburn by legendary hobbyist Paul Hill back in 1963.

Includes LOA from Hunt Auctions, vintage signed photo of Ashburn wearing identical model glove, color photo of Ashburn wearing identical model glove, letter of provenance from Paul Hill, related letters confirming display at the National Baseball Hall of Fame: E
