Matt Harvey was dubbed “The Dark Knight of Gotham” by SI’s Tom Verducci because of his sheer power and nastiness on the mound.
The name is a fitting one. If his high-90s fastball isn’t scary enough, he’s got a top-to-bottom curveball, power slider, and a changeup that is statistically his best pitch (opponents batting average .122 vs. the change according to Pitch f/x). Not only is his pitching repertoire sinister, he has the gear to match.
Nike Diamond Elite Pro II in Black with Blue Lacing w/ Custom Two-Piece Solid Web
Harvey has a wicked black Nike with a Mets’ blue custom lace-job. Those four stripes of lace on the pinky of all Nike Diamond Elite gloves look nasty with this color combo, unfortunately, Matt Harvey’s glove is not available online. His two-piece solid web, borrowed from Rawlings, isn’t available on regular Nike gloves, though the I-Web is a nice alternative.
You can see one option in the above photo and one below. Both of these are available online at the links above, though I’m a much bigger fan of the ones below. I just don’t like the white being in there at all. It doesn’t really match up for me.
Harvey follows suit with his ride, too, driving a black 2013 Cadillac Escalade (no, its not a Hybrid like this one). As you know, these are available, too.
