I just looked at the Robinson again and I still think it's a glove that is white at the wrist and a reddish brown skin toned color at the hands.

It really looks just like a wristband to me...

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

I think I stand corrected. So that leaves 0 57 topps with gloves.

I have watched all of the old Homerun Derby films several times and many of the players are wearing gloves. They were golf gloves, I am not aware of any baseball specific batting gloves being made until much later. You can see the Wilson ball marker on some of them in the films.

Good catch Mike--it appears that several cards from the Home Run Derby set depict players wearing gloves, including Hank Aaron wearing two. Given the specialty format of that event and that it occurred outside of the MLB season it's not surprising that they would be wearing batting gloves. So now we're back to at least late 1959 or early 1960 for the earliest card.

I always thought the '66 Bob Allison card was cool with the double black batting gloves. Sorry don't have a scan.

Thanks Al. Didn't see that look too much in the 60's.
