First: Reach 246 "The Ball Hawk". Youth Glove. I'm thinking early '50s. Two fingers, webbing and the thumb. Leather laced together. I thought I would find something because of the number on the glove, but haven't been able to.
Second: Nokona Glove. I think before 1950, but how old I don't know. No number of player's name on glove. 5 fingers, with webbing between thumb and first finger with leather lacing. The other three fingers are separate with no attachment between them. It seems like a small adult glove.
thanks for your help.
The "Ball Hawk" models first appeared in catalogs around 1946. Here is a 1947 Reach Ball Hawk from a 1947 ad. The glove pictured is a 267 model. The 246 as you mentioned is the youth model.
Your description for the Nokona glove pretty much covers most of the gloves made before 1950, as you thought. Below is a Nokona catalog ad from 1946. If this doesn't help post a picture using photobucket or send it to my email firstname.lastname@example.org. You could also post the pictures to facebook if you have an account (see info below) -Steven KeyMan
