As advertised in an accompanying photocopy of a period advertising page, "This is not only the 'Highest Quality' Mask made by us, but has also our patent sunshade, which is formed by a piece of molded leather securely fastened to top, forming a perfect shade to the eye without obstructing the view or materially increasing the weight of the mask...Made of best soft annealed steel wire, extra heavy and black enameled, thus further preventing the reflection of light. The mask throughout is constructed of the very best material and has been highly endorsed by the leading catchers." GD/VG condition yet displays nicer with all original padding, straps and buckles, including chin pad and reinforced eye covers. Spalding's company label appears at the intersection of the elastic straps.
