In honor of Nokona’s 80th Anniversary, Joe Phillips is releasing the 2nd Edition of Nokona Ball Gloves: A Texas Tradition. Phillips, an expert known as “The Glove Collector”, tells the story of Nokona, starting with its roots as a small leather goods manufacturer, to making leather sporting goods like footballs and helmets, to becoming America’s Ball Glove company. Travel through time and read about Nokona’s wartime efforts, the postwar boom, professional players, and Nokona’s commitment to being American-made, with behind-the-scene stories and many vintage photos.
* Please be aware that there is no coloring in laser branding, the contrast will be greater on lighter colored leathers.

I bought this book because I recently purchases several gloves and other Nokona products. I wanted to know something about the history of the company, their gloves. In addition to the book, I googled Nokona and found out even more historical information that was good to know. I recommend getting this book for anyone who purchases a Nokona glove.
