Albert Fred “Red” Schoendienst was born on February 2, 1923, in Germantown, Illinois, a village of about 800 residents 40 miles east of St. Louis. He grew up in a large Catholic family with five brothers and a sister. Three of his brothers would go on to play in the minor leagues.
Schoendienst never saw a major-league game until he played in his first game for the Cardinals in 1945, but the sport was central to his life almost from birth.
Measuring 4" by 3.85", this vintage bi-fold was created from a MacGregor G119 Red Schoendienst Player Model glove. You want to talk about stunning glove details and gorgeous patina, then look no further. Red’s signature pops off the leather and the player model on the back is a fantastic detail that can’t be overlooked. Whether you’re a lifelong Cards fan or not, this wallet provides great looks and more than enough functionality. Take a look at all the pictures and enjoy!
