Finally! I get around to posting photos of this beautiful ambidextrous glove. Probably the nicest glove I have ever owned and the Deguchi leather is phenomenal. The one question I still have is where is the glove made. There are absolutely no markings on it. Could they still be making these ambidextrous gloves in Japan? I highly doubt it but does anyone know for sure? Every other custom Mizuno I have seen has a Made in China from Japanese blah blah marking on it.

After receiving this in late summer (with the help of Gabby, thanks buddy), I sold off the rest of my stable except for one blue Mizuno from the 90s... only two gloves in the house yet six months later I am still quite happy. In fact, I don't want to break this one in... unless I order another one. ;)

That thing is a BEAST! Towson was nice enough to let me open up the box and check it out, and it is a BIG glove! You really can put it on either hand, but I wonder how it is performing? Have you played catch with it? Has your wife forgiven you for buying it? It was a pleasure helping you get it, buddy.

You know what, I've just played a bit of couch catch with it. It is a monster of a glove. I have pretty big hands and it still overwhelms them. Wife was fine because I cleared out the stable... essentially getting more money than I paid for the GMP 1A. Took out to a nice dinner.

It's like a car wreck. I can't stop looking at it. I would carry that around with me everywhere I went. So cool.

Hey man...

That's an awesome glove.. i've been trying to get that one for 2 years now with no luck... can you tell me how you got it please?

i'm a switch pitcher in Singapore... i currently have a TPX LHRHBBG (left hand right hand baseball glove) which is 5 fingered (looks like a frog's foot) but it kinda sucks coz its got too much finger and not enough webbing... so thats too many flubbed grounders and line drives compared to regular gloves...

can you please advise?
