MacGregor Johnny Temple Glove

Like Ray Crone, I had never heard of Johnny Temple until I found his baseball glove in a thrift store. Temple played second base for the Reds, a teammate of Frank Robinson's.
He played from 1952-1964, and appeared in six all-star games.
I bought the glove for three dollars, and saw it listed on line for $100.00. Unfortunately, a kid wrote W-E-L-S-H and D-A-D-D-Y on the letter per finger.
Unlike the Crone glove, my Temple glove is left-handed, like I'll enjoy it much more.
Interestingly, Temple's birthday is a day after mine.
