As most glove collectors know, many pro gloves find their way to the Dominican Republic by way of players who donate them to family, friends, and other players not in the Major Leagues. These gloves typically are pro model Dominican Republic player gloves (often with names embroidered), but show excessive wear and tear. Here are two points to consider on this particular Aramis Ramirez glove:
This particular A-Ram glove has someone else's name clearly hand-written near the wrist strap and exhibits WAY more use than a Major League glove should show (especially when you consider the fact that this isn't a model A-Ram used for a long period of time).
Collectors should note that Major League infielders are playing on well manicured fields - this glove clearly was used under less than ideal conditions. In fact, I would classify the "use" on this particular glove as excessive abuse.
This is a situation I've run across on several Pujols gloves that are on the market. In fact, more than one of these gloves had someone else's name/initials written on/inside the glove. Albert gives them to players who don't have the access to equipment he does, they are used heavily, then find their way into the hobby as "game used" Albert Pujols gloves.
Just some food for thought.
