2006 Albert Pujols Glove
Rawlings Glove has Albert's Children A.J. And Isabella stitched on thumb area. The glove has the Rawlings BLACKHORSE code EBEH on side of glove that equates to 0106 for January 2006. According to the Pujols Foundations Site Pujols Gamers by Rob Steinmetz : 2004 and 2005: When Albert made the switch to playing full-time 1B, he also switched to Rawlings gloves. Pujols 1B gloves are embroidered with his childrens names on the thumb in red. The first glove Rawlings made for Pujols was light tan with red lacing, but later models were black and red or dark brown. To date, only two game worn Rawlings first baseman gloves have surfaced in the hobby , one light tan with red lacing (used in Spring Training), and another black and red glove that was sold at the 2005 Christmas Gala (used throughout 2005 and during the final game at old Busch Stadium). One other game issued unused glove was sold by Steiner Sports in an online auction. 2006: For the third consecutive season, Pujols used only a Rawlings glove. In 2005, Albert used both a tan and a black and red glove. In 2006, he used only a black and red glove. The main glove used by Pujols during the 2006 season was kept by him. No back-up models have surfaced to date. On a related note, 2006 marked the first time Pujols won a Gold Glove Award.
