Nokona Baseball Gloves
Nokona baseball gloves have been around longer than you may think. As early as 1926 they were launched along with the formation of the Nocona Leather Goods Company. Eight years later, their baseball glove was trademarked. And ever since, they have put up the strongest competition of any other company that stands up to the top dogs like Rawlings, Wilson, and Mizuno. If they had not, then they would not be as popular as they still are today. With a history of emphasizing the purchase of raw materials in the U.S., Nokona has long supplied the backbone of their glove line through employing highly skilled leather crafters in the small town that lent its namesake to their company, Nocona, Texas. Residents take great pride in the Nokona baseball gloves produced in their community.
