A while back Rawlings discontinued the use of Horween leather on their stock mitts. And while they have yet to have more than a limited comeback , more and more Horween gloves are available today than in the past few years.
This post will serve as the complete guide to any Rawlings Horween gloves that hit the marketplace. Releases may be few and far between, but this post will remained updated throughout the years.

It’s been a while since the Cal Ripken model has been on the market. It’s 12″, has a single post, a Fastback shell, and of course, Horween leather.
And while it’s not the greatest mitt on use on the diamond anymore, it’s the perfect glove for collectors who wish to have a glove that you probably won’t ever see used in the MLB again.
Nolan Arenado is simply one of the best two-way players in the MLB today. And while his bat has been doing most of the talking in recent years, you can’t ignore the fact that he’s won six straight Gold Glove awards at the hot corner. Yes, six.
