Made by Rawlings, this is the chair crafted in the form of a gargantuan baseball glove, upholstered entirely with the same exceptional leather as the mitts used by professional ballplayers. The leather for this chair is selected from the top 5% of steer hides in the Midwestern U.S. – the same as used in Rawlings’ acclaimed “Heart of the Hide” baseball glove.
Leveraging Rawlings’ 125 years of experience making quality sporting goods, each chair is built to order by master craftsman in the company’s St. Louis facility, who assemble the all-wood frame by hand. The chair is upholstered front and back, padded with furniture-grade foam, and rests on a solid mahogany base. Authentic details add to the chair’s convincing realism, from the 34 aluminum grommets and 30′ of leather lacing wound through the fingers, to the Rawlings name branded in the “heel” of the glove. An included removable 12″ square armrest is made from the same top-quality leather. 44″ H x 39″ W x 28″ D. (116 lbs.)
