The Rawlings Reaper (A Rusty eBay Gamble)

I picked this beast of a bag on eBay.



It was listed in the wrong category, boxing gloves, and described without bladder, so a man cave item or just a collection piece. What a steal! The leather is just beautiful. I have to do a little restoration on the piping around the top. And add some nice brown or tan leather laces.

I call it the reaper because its huge, heavy, and will kill both my arms and my 24" x-mark platform.



-Rusty

I'm just glad you went with the female version of that joke.

Yeah ,it's a little bit amazing that I got two very vintage bags that have mint leather. We've seen an awful lot of garbage being peddled on eBay that is disentergrating as you look at it. Some of it listed for an outrageous amount (although I seriously doubt that they are ever actually sold).

I scored a nice 4200 Olympic edition too, but that is another story for another thread...

And in this corner, 29P, "The Reaper" Rawlings! Fully restored, unlike my faith in humanity.
