NO TE: This model has been discontinued and most internet retailers have long since been out of stock. PLEASE MESSAGE ME FOR BEST PRICE: 1 5868058080. THIS IS A VERY NICE GLOVE!The "Classic Pro X" gloves are much nicer than the current "Pro Soft" series now produced by Mizuno. I have no idea what Mizuno was thinking when they cancelled the "Classic Pro X" and went to the "Pro Soft" series! The "Pro Soft" gloves are so soft and flimsy, there is no way they will hold their shape over time. Note: I have several of these gloves and most all of them have some evidence of pre-oiling in the pocket. Throughout time, most every one of the gloves has developed some degreee of oil in the palm of the glove.
This condition is not uncommon in many high end gloves and is more noticable in the lighter colored leathers. This condition is the result of the pre-oiling done at the factory.
Pre-oiling of the palm is part of the manufacturing process and over the course of time, the oil can bleed thru into the glove pocket. Description for the Mizuno Classic Pro Series: GCP47X. Mizunos most popular Pro Level glove, utilizing patented 3D Technology that has set the industry standard for position specific pattern designs, the Classic Pro offers the best in craftsmanship, fit, and performance in a Pro Level glove. Featuring rich, natural leathers tanned in the USA, the Classic Pro brings back all of the tradition of the game, while providing unprecedented feel and control for the best players.

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. 7042 DS / 7700 DS / 6875 / 5421 / 4500-6 / 7368.
