!!!!! Oils also darken leather!! Chris
Yea forgot about it darkening, that would be a mess for sure.
That glove was never retreated but is was a good glove at the time and last played on a league when I was about 45-47 and the glove still is like new and you can still tell the oil is in it.
There is a possibility that when I went from hardball to softball I retreated it and tied a softball inside to make the glove pocket bigger but I just don't remember for sure.
When I get new work boots I treat with the neats foot before wearing and next time I will treat with it hot, did not know that, as In past i just would slop on.
Thanks for the info.
