BRAND NEW W/TAGS EASTON PREMIER SELECT PSX152 Baseball Glove - 11.5 RH (Right Hand Throw). No surprises here, this glove is perfectly uniform in color and there are no unsightly oil stains in the pocket or any other unsightly imperfections. THIS IS EASTONS PREMIUM TOP OF THE LINE GLOVE! Outside of some minor graphics and stamping changes, the biggest change from the earlier year's Premier Select Models is the price. A glove is only as good as the leather from which it is made.Introducing the Premier Select Series. Each Premier Select glove is meticulously hand crafted in our custom sample room. Each piece of the premium-grade Double-Tanned Kip leather is specifically selected from the top 5% of the highest grade leathers available, resulting in the most comfortable, most durable, best looking glove in the game today. The Premier Select Series also feature professional grade USA-tanned rawhide lace for superior durability as well as breathable soft chocolate steer hide lining for the utmost in comfort. Easton has also partnered with Pittard`s World Class Leather to include a Cabretta sheepskin contoured index finger channel. This extremely soft and supple, yet durable, sheepskin is sweat resistant while offering maximum comfort benefits and unparalleled grip. Players will enjoy maximized fit and control with the Easton Ideal Fit System. This patent-pending system delivers the flexibility and comfort of an open back glove, with the feel/control of a closed back glove. The Premier Series also uses pre-curved finger back welting with reinforced stitch lines to provide additional strength and ideal pocket shape. This fine looking series is finished with a direct embroidered Diamond E and EASTON logos. Easton Premier Select Series: PSX152 Features.

Soft chocolate steer hide lining, finger stalls, binding and welting. TIP: Many of the higher-end premium gloves produced by Rawlings, Wilson, Mizuno, etc. Have inner pockets that are pre-oiled at the factory. There is a tendency for the oil to bleed through (particularly on the lighter tan and brown colored gloves) and it is not uncommon to see what appears to be an oil stain of varying degree in the palm area of these gloves.I have received gloves in the past that arrived without any evidence of oil and within months, the oil bleeds through into the palm. Many of the gloves ordered off of "stock"pictures on the internet will end up having this condition. TIP: Many of the premium gloves including Rawlings Pro Preferred & Heart of the Hide, Wilson's A2000 & A3000, Mizuno's Classic Pro and Pro Limited, etc. Are somewhat stiff when brand new.
A quality glove conditioner will do much to reduce the break-in period for any stiff new glove. Almost all glove conditioners will generally darken the leather and appearance of lighter colored gloves.
TIP: Regardless of whether you prefer the natural method of breaking in a glove, sooner or later you will have to recondition your glove! Personally, I recommend cleaning and conditioning a glove each and every year after a good season of use. All leather gloves will start to dry out and laces will become brittle when subjected to regular use. Prolonged exposure to sand and dirt, wind, rain, hot sun, etc. Will take its toll on even the very best glove.
PLEASE stay away from those cheap oils, foams or other liquid products out there on the market. The foams don't work and liquids such as oils are absorbed deep into the glove, add a tremendous amount of weight, and are nothing more than a magnet for attracting dirt and debris. Also, PLEASE don't ever bake your baseball glove in the oven or microwave or soak it in the tub to aid in the break-in process. You will invariably destroy a very fine piece of leather and take years off a gloves life! Personally, I never use anything but a paste type glove conditioner.
Although I prefer Wilson Pro Stock Glove Conditioner, there are comparable products on the market from manufacturers such as Easton, Nokona, etc. Regardless of what brand of paste type conditioner you choose to use, do yourself a favor and make sure it contains lanolin and vitamin E. Nothing is better at restoring and revitalizing the leather on your glove! With a little care, your glove should last for many years and most likely outlive your baseball career.
