Who could forget the crowning moment of Rickey Henderson's career, when he swiped his record-breaking 939th base and then raised the base overhead to declare: "Lou Brock was the symbol of great base stealing. But today I am the greatest of all time." That iconic photo (linked here) captures the "Man of Steal" sporting a similar style of Mizuno batting gloves and cleats as those offered here. For an exact style photo match from another point in that historic '91 season, we refer you to a close-up posed shot on Getty Images (linked here) with the identical gloves and turf cleats. Henderson's game-used gear shows solid use with ample soiling.
