Howdy All;

Have a chance to get my hands on a 70ish Wilson "The A2800" with the dual hinge web.
previous owner had strung wire (???), in the web to stiffen it??? It's not an XL or XLC.
It IS 13" so I'm thinking along the lines of softball.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

hank

Post a few pic's. A dual hinged A2800 would be one of the earliest versions for sure...although the few we have owned ran on the smaller side...more like 12". I believe the first "The A2800" model was released in 1967. I assume your is conventional back?

Glove-Works, Howdy;

The back is mostly enclosed, has 2 holes (made that way), and the wrist strap is sorta 'T' shaped
where it attaches to the thumb and little finger sides. Reckon ya'll might call it a closed back (???).
I'm still new to this collection hobby. :roll:
Thanks for taking the time to answer and any other 'enlightenments' you might be able to provide.
