The 1934 Tex Carleton World Series Game Used Glove

Tex Carleton won 100 games in his career as a starting right-handed pitcher, most notably for the hard-playing St. Louis Cardinals' “Gas House Gang” and, then, the Chicago Cubs. The 1934 Cardinals, led by Dizzy and Paul Dean, Frankie Frisch, Joe Medwick, Pepper Martin and Leo Durocher, won the World Series by beating the Detroit Tigers, 4 games to 3. This glove was used by Carleton when he started Game 4 of the Series and when he relieved Dizzy Dean in Game 5. To think that this glove saw action during the glory days of the "Gas House Gang" is truly exciting. Carleton also used this glove when he started Game 4 of the 1935 World Series, again vs. the Detroit Tigers. (He lost a heartbreaker, 2-1). The glove saw its final World Series game in 1938, when Tex pitched in Game 4 vs. the victorious New York Yankees.

The glove, ball and tickets had been on display for many years at the museum at Ameriquest Field in Arlington, Texas, home of the Texas Rangers and were owned by Carleton’s cousin.
