Giles, 24, stores three black Rawlings baseball gloves on the top shelf of his locker in the Phillies clubhouse. The relief pitcher custom-ordered the mitts last season to have "100M Giles" stitched into the side. It was the nickname the righthander earned in the minor leagues for his ability to spike a radar gun.

Giles uses a permanent marker to inscribe Montano's initials and a pair of crosses into the thumb of every mitt, the same way he has since Montano died of a heroin overdose on May 2, 2012.

This glove will never be made again. as he got traded to Houston Astro, and Only Ken can request to have his glove customized. Here is the 1/3 I acquired as my Gail Glove. not only its a nice pro issued. This Glove has a lot of meanings, (read above) extracted from the Phillies webpage.

I wish him luck with the ASTRO, as a Phillies's fan, I can understand the trade, but he WILL be missed.
