I know he used Easton for a while but now sporting a nice pp; looks to be a 200-6. If you look close at the 2nd pic it looks like he removed the gold patch cause you can still see some thread holes.

I'm assuming it is a pro preferred, could be a J hoh.

That pic is from 2008. He's now with the Astros. He does use a Rawlings glove but removes the patch because of his contract with Easton.

Not very subtle, here...

Funny thing is that even when he removes the wrist patch, his gloves still have the Rawlings script logo embroidered in a bright, contrasting color... pretty hard to miss.

As for this, I think it's a PP. It looks like it has rolled leather welting.
It is a beautiful glove, but it makes me wonder. If it's a custom, why would it have an index finger pad if he goes with 2 in the pinky?

Not that uncommon... since most every retail model PP comes with an index finger pad, the only one's that won't have one are full customs. And even then it's not uncommon for a player/agent to forget to mention it or not care enough to have it deleted, or for the delete instructions to not make it to the Philippines when they make the glove. Quite a few MLB players who have no use for an index finger pad (2 in the pinky, or all fingers in) use gloves that have one, especially if the retail version of their gloves has one (meaning that special instructions have to given to delete it).
