I dunno about the leather....yet. I don't have it in my possession. I just purchased it. Spalding has pretty good leather huh? Now let me ask another question....that model is strangly similar to my made in the USA XFCB17 Tom Seaver I'm having refurbished. Both are made in the USA. Nowadays, if it has a player's name on the glove, it's cheap and it's for kids. It seems to me from just reading posts on this forum that back when these gloves came out, they were close to top of the line glove/still are/might be. Is this a correct assumption? Were these actually good gloves? Leather wise, game type models?

The Pro Model Mike Andrews Spalding is a much better quality than the "normal" Rawlings XFCB 17 Tom Seaver gloves. I have owned 5-6 XFCB17 Tom Seavers and trust me the Andrews Spalding glove is much nicer...

I'm only assuming since I didn't pay out the rear for either my xfcb Seaver or the Andrews Spalding that both could be gamers if taken care of properly?

That's a sweet glove. I have one just like it (but for left hand throw). Good leather even after all these years in a garage cabinet.

that could be a gamer glove. and i am glad you bought it b/c i think it was the same one i had been looking at and i was tired of seeing it and not buying it. if i remember correctly it was too small for my liking. glad it found a good home.
