The Elite 8 Finalists of Our Wilson Custom Glove Giveaway

Let me start by saying that this was the toughest decision of our lives.  OK not that tough but it took way longer than expected to pick finalists.  There were so many fresh jobs that they all deserved our attention and respect.

We originally wanted to choose 4 finalists, but it was impossible, so we expanded the field to 8.  Even at 8, there were some left out that could easily have won this contest.  If you didn’t make it, don’t take it as a slight on your stylistics, just that we had to somehow narrow it down.

Check ’em out, click the WPW-anointed names to view the specs, pick your favorite and vote on it at the bottom.  The more voting the better, so share with your friends, too.  A huge thank you to Wilson for putting this together.  Go get a fresh custom glove at WilsonCustomGloves.com if you haven’t already.

IMPORTANT NOTE AND CHANGE OF RULES: THE WINNER OF THIS VOTE WILL BE THE OVERALL WINNER!!!  WE ARE GOING TO FOREGO THE SECOND ROUND AND JUST TREAT THIS AS THE FINALS BECAUSE THE SECOND ROUND THING WAS A DUMB IDEA IN THE FIRST PLACE.

AGAIN, WHOEVER WINS THIS VOTE WINS IT ALL!  VOTING ENDS ON SUNDAY AT 11 AM PACIFIC TIME!!!

The Crusader 1786 by @Burgar3llo

This Holy Cross recruit looks like he’s prepping for a middle infield job with the Crusaders.  That mesh/purple/white is straight dirty and a great match for his team colors.

The Hand of the Rising Sun 1781 by @OnoTaishi

Taishi designed a glove inspired by his home country, Japan.  It was the yellow logos that really made this one pop.

Seafoam DP15 by @tyler_helm21

I caught myself favoring the white base colors, and this one was one of my favorites.

Stars and Stripes DP15 by @Dat_Dude_TR

There were a few like this but this one stood out from the rest for us.  Its not too loud but still a bona fide head-turner on the diamond.

The Black Hole 1791-Pudge by @Daps_20

Our catcher’s entry, this is just a sharp all-around custom job.  Looks like it has an insatiable appetite for fastballs on the black.

Baby Blue I 1787 by @jdmcewen22

So easy on the eyes.  This one has heartbreaker written all over it.

Stay Classy 1787 by @CAMPAS_13

Many of the classic-looking gloves lost out in favor of the vibrant ones, but this cream/black was the classiest entry we saw.  Vanderbilt should be all over this.

A&W DP15 by @DaneHogue

Maybe its because I love cream soda, but this one just looks delicious.

  1. How can Stars and Stripes be at 26.42% at 2:03pm central time and then drop to 25.18% at 2:55pm central time? Who’s playing with the numbers here?

    1. The voters probably had something to do with it. One percentage point and you’re accusing someone of conspiracy?
