    Hey guys! New to the forum here and don't know much about leather care, especially caring for more delicate vintage leather. So any input or pointers would be greatly appreciated! :)

    I recently purchased a coach baseball heritage wallet online, it's made from a 70+ year old leather baseball glove. It's a very nice piece, the leather is beautifully aged, with nice patina and signs of wear, over all it has so much personality, the look and feel of this piece is really like nothing else that you can find in stores today and I absolutely love it.

    My question is...

    I'd like to condition the vintage wallet without necessarily "cleaning" it. I want to keep it soft and conditioned without trying to make it look clean and brand new. Can anyone recommend anything? Thanks guys!!!

    Hey Delta,
    My mom was a pitcher in the Women's Professional League back in the late 40's. I was able to bring her old glove back to life with Pecards Antique Leather Dressing.

    Very cool! The patina on that glove is gorgeous, thanks for the pointers! I'll give it a shot, where can I purchase some?
