Looks like an old basic Wilson Charcoal protector. A new one costs between $90 - $105. If the one on eBay sells for $50 or more, it only provides (once again) that P.T. Barnum was correct.

I noticed that. All my belts are 1-3/4" so 3/4" wide belt loops wouldn't come close to working. I'm guessing they left off the "1" in 1-3/4"

It's been out for several years and sold by Rawlings as a catcher's helmet and not an umpire's helmet (thank goodness). The only place I ever saw one was at a youth game. It no longer appears on...

If you sew an orange VT on the maroon shirt it makes a good golf shirt.

Their gray shirt is more of a blue/gray than the gray shirt by Dalco and the quality is not nearly as good as the Dalco.

Strange, my Tanels are 5 or 6 years old and still going strong. They outlasted the "redesigned" Honigs K90s I purchased about 4 years ago. Perhaps Tanel changed manufacturers.

That shot of MLB umpire Bill Summers appeared in a 1959 issue of Life Magazine. I've seen an enlargement of the photo - those are not keys in his right hand, it's a brush.
