Trying to find the glove that I used back in the day. Not sure of the model, but I know it was a Wilson. Probably 12.75. Reddish Brown, flex thing on back. Closed web. Purchased in 1988 or 1987.

No it was a hinge that covered the back of the knuckles. No signature. No Velcro. With a finger hole.

Is there anywhere online to look at old Wilson catalogs?

Wilson was making their gloves in japan by then. I know that i had the same glove you described but USA made. It was an A2000 XLC (12.5"). They play big so that's probably why you may have thought it was a 12.75" glove.

The saddle tan XLC with a bellows web was Wilson's bread and butter A2000 for years and years. If you look back at pictures of players from the 70's and 80's you will see a lot of XLC's, particularly among pitchers.

Almost 100% sure it wasn't an A2000. My friend had one and I remember liking it, but it just seem a lot of crap going on.... I tried the Japan website but could not navigate on my iPhone.

wow it's been a while. Still haven't found my glove, after a weekly search on eBay…. Any other ideas??? Did any other wilson gloves have the "flex" over the knuckles besides the A2000?
Thanks
