Default Reeded Shin Guard help

Hi guys,

I recently purchased a set of reeded shin guards and couldn't be happier, but I could use some help trying to identify the manufacturer. The image is faded, but hoping someone can help.

Thanks in advance!

I can't quite see the writing clearly enough. But based on the circular logo, my top 3 contenders would be...

Spalding
Honus Wagner
Lowe & Campbell

From what I can make out of the writing around the perimeter, I think I see an ampersand (&) sign. So that would favor either "Lowe & Campbell" or "Spalding & Bros."

Can you post a picture of the full Reeded Shin Guards? That might help, and perhaps someone else here with better eyesight can pin it down!

If you put water on the logo does it stand out any more?

Have you tried putting a piece of typing paper over the logo and taking the side of a pencil and lightly going over the logo to see if the words come out more clearly on the paper?

David,

I was hesitant about putting water on the leather knee caps, put I mat try the pencil and paper to see if comes out more legible.

Thank you
