Did deion sanders wear baseball gloves in football?
No, Deion Sanders did not wear baseball gloves while in football. I was the head of Accessory product Development at the time and he wore specially made football gloves. Most of the gloves made for Deion were "Tactified" and often had special embossing and or debossing on the leather. Much like his baseball gloves, we often used some very colorful leather and other materials to make the gloves very flashy and special for him.
