Glove Repair and Restoration Service Details:

Re-Lacing
Cost: $50.00 or $15.00/lace Our fast turn-around service will lace and return your glove or mitt within 7 to 10 days, anywhere in the U.S.A. We will match and replace all the rawhide lacing; leather conditioning included.

Re-palm Leather Pocket
Cost: $150.00 This means that the leather in the pocket of your glove where the ball hits needs to be replaced with new leather. If your glove has tears or holes in this area then re-palm service is needed. We match the color of the leather we are replacing and we maintain the original shape and feel of your glove.

Leather Lining Replacement
Cost: $100.00 This means your glove or mitt has worn out in the area where you place your hand. The padding is showing through and there are holes and tears that are abrasive and annoying to you. Our one of a kind restoration service, replicates, replaces and installs a new leather lining. The service includes the replacement of all leather loops and straps. We match the color of the leather we are replacing and we maintain the original shape and feel of your glove.

Glove Body, Web patching and Seam Mending
Cost: $60.00/each area of repair This means any holes or open seams will be mended or patched to restore the complete functioning of your glove. In some patch cases, extra stitching may be visible. We will discuss any and all cosmetic issues regarding your restoration before we do the work.

Binding Edge Replacement and Repair
Cost: $50.00/glove Your glove may need to have the rolled leather edging that wraps around the glove’s hand opening repaired. The original leather edging could be worn and torn, or the vinyl binding is now cracked and broken. We will remove and replace the old vinyl or leather with fine high quality leather. We match the color of the leather we are replacing and we maintain the original shape and feel of your glove.

Thumb & Pinky Loops and Wrist Straps Replacement
Cost: $40.00/loop or strap Thumb and pinky loops are straps that help you grip and control your glove with your hand from the inside. In addition, your glove could have an adjustable wrist strap or Velcro strap that is broken or dysfunctional. We will repair or replace the strap in exacting detail.

Felt Padding Replacement and/or Stuffing
Cost: $60.00/each piece These items are primarily the main pads that fill the thumb and pinky areas of the glove. There are additional smaller pads that fill the other fingers. Pre-war gloves have fabric or canvas sleeves that are filled with curled animal hair or cotton. If your glove has damaged or torn pads, we will repair all or any of them with exacting detail. We will replace the felt foam or fabric materials. We maintain the original shape and feel of your glove.

Plastic Finger Support Replacements
Cost: $40.00/each Your glove or mitt may be floppy or not holding its shape. Often gloves and First Basemen’s and Catcher’s mitts are made with plastic flat spoon-shaped rigid supports inserted in the thumb and pinky areas to maintain their shape. They are installed originally in the felt padding and are not readily noticeable. Our experts can evaluate and determine whether these supports need to be replaced. We are also able to custom make plastic supports for installation in your glove.

Installing microSorbPads
Cost: $40.00/glove or mitt Space age, super shock absorbent microSorb™ padding can be installed in your glove. This is a revolutionary material specially developed for this application. The material is thin, flexible, lightweight and super shock absorbing and unobtrusive. We place the material in the area of your glove or mitt where the ball hits in the finger and palm area of the pocket. microSorb™ takes the sting out!
