Modest Vintage Player Sporting Goods

We like to think that we’re a fairly sporty bunch here at Coolector HQ with a broad range of interests so it was inevitable that the, quite frankly awesome, series of hand crafted sporting goods from the guys at New Zealand based brand, Modest Vintage Player, was going to utterly resonate with our sensibilities. If, like us, you like old school sporting goods which have been painstakingly hand-crafted to ensure their quality, this is a brand that needs to be on your radar.

Each product from the Modest Vintage Player Sporting Goods stable is made by hand with a real attention to detail and this positively shines through in the immeasurable quality of the finished product. You’ll find sporting wares from myriad different sports including baseball, boxing, American football and gym accessories. The quality on offer with these products is backed up by the fact that only premium genuine cowhide leather is used for all the Modest Vintage Player products.

First Class Vintage Aesthetic 

They might look vintage and retro but all the products from Modest Vintage Player are ready and waiting to be used and don’t just have to be put on display on your mantlepiece or in your workspace. These fantastic vintage sporting goods are all crafted with design and functionality in mind and we’re loving the bold visual impact that each one has and the head designer at Modest Vintage Player, Josh Carmody, certainly has a flair for creating the sort of sporting goods that are going to appeal to today’s contemporary man.

In order to really make their products stand out from the crowd, Modest Vintage Player will collaborate with high profile designers, architects, gyms, athletes, celebrities and a variety of sporting organisations to make eye-catching and supremely cool custom made sporting goods and projects that are going to appeal to any sports lover. We’re particularly fond of their excellent array of boxing goods here at Coolector HQ such as luxurious looking punching bags that wouldn’t look out of place in a Victorian gym and a first rate selection of old school style boxing gloves.

Moving away from mass produced goods and focusing on small batch production, the great array of wares from Modest Vintage Player is going to appeal to those who want products that are a cut above from other products on the market and the sort of thing that will turn heads whether it’s being displayed or used for a sporting event. With products made from best cuts of genuine leather and carefully selected timber by skilled craftsman that creates sophisticated but functional sports and recreation goods, there is nothing not to like about this excellent brand.

Dedication to Excellence

The team at Modest Vintage Player works only with the most experienced and dedicated craftsman and skilled artisans and have the firm belief that sporting goods should be not just functional pieces of equipment for your enjoyment, but also works of art in their own right that are talking points within your home or gym. And, as you can see from their stellar line up of goods, it’s mission well and truly accomplished on that front.
