About a week or so ago I made this post, referring to a pickup that was on its way to me. The post featured this photo of Hamilton just prior to getting kicked out of a game against the Cleveland Indians on May 25, 2008.
Why this photo? Well, I swung a trade for a pair of batting gloves that Hamilton used in this series. I was contacted by a fellow member of HobbyInsider.net, who works as a visiting clubhouse attendant for the Indians. Hamilton gave him the gloves after the series, and he got in touch with me after I posted a Hamilton pickup thread on the boards. Currently, this is the best picture I can find showing his batting gloves from the series, if anyone can point me in the direction of some hi res pictures from the series, i’d be thrilled to have one or two to display with the gloves.
Without further ado, here’s some of the pics of the gloves. Resized for blog display, of course.
