Rawlings Ambidextrous Baseball Glove Prototype

After Googling for ambidextrous baseball gloves, I ran across an eBay auction for a one-of-a-kind Rawlings Ambidextrous Baseball Glove Prototype.

This prototype looks like a glove design that my son came up with when he was ten.
Make a glove that has two webs.

Of course, there is problem with this design - Where do the fingers go?

From the backside, it looks like the middle fingers might go into finger loops on the outside of the glove.

Glove description from the seller:

RARE Rawlings prototype HOH DOUBLE WEB baseball glove

My uncle was the glove supervisor at Rawlings for over 40 years,  he saved a few prototypes.  This one is the last of his collection and the Holy Grail.....  This prototype was made with two webs.  Very unusual and one of a kind!  It was displayed at the Missouri Rawlings Headquarters years ago.  Please check my 100% positive feedback before you bid,  I listed two other prototypes tonight,  this is the only glove that I'm going to put a reserve on, and if it doesn't sell, it may go to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

thanks, Terry
