Post subject:  PRO1175DCPM - Another perspective...

Had ordered a second one for the kid after he and buddies liked the first one so much, and thought I had it hidden where he wouldn't notice... but the kid inherited his mother's "snoop" gene, which meant I was sorely mistaken with that thought. Anyway, since it popped out of the box and into the daylight, I noticed the second one (ID #20) has less prominent stamping throughout the glove than the first one (ID #09). Both have same EOES (July '09) date code. #20 feels "suedier" than #09 did originally, and seems to have fewer noticeable bumps on the outside of the shell (primarily around the thumb and pinkie). #09 is pretty much ready to go at this point, the kid has been working on it and is anxious for it to make its on-field and/or in-game debut. #20 went back in the box... both awesome gloves (though #20 needs a new lace color), but I was surprised about the type and amount of subtle differences; I'm used to seeing the differences more in shape, stitching, and other workmanship areas, but I was really hoping not to find out until #09 had a couple of seasons under its wrist strap.
