The most impressive place for insight on the 11.75 Rawlings glove line was directly on their site. Although they allow you to sort by glove size direction, 11.75, we had trouble making our browser do so. It appears there may be some glitch. Regardless, check that site for a good feel for what Rawlings offers in the 11.75 glove line. They do not break the gloves up by model (315, 205 and NP5) nor do they really explain the differences between the two. But, in terms of pure lists of gloves in the line then that is the place.
As well, we found some success on closeoutbats.com website. They appear to carry about every 11.75-inch glove that Rawlings makes.

Heart of the Hide 11.75 Glove Models
The Rawlings 205 series of glove is a traditional infield based glove design. In the 11.75 the glove is built with a decent sized pocket on a number of web designs.
The 205 comes in an 11.75 Trap-Eze web design. This light tan beauty has the serial number PRO205-4C and is made for the pitcher or thirdbaseman that wants a trap web.
Some 205 patterns come in color sync models. These gloves intend to give the custom look but a stock glove price. This nontraditional blue wrist patch on a H-Web design has the serial number PRO205W-6NG. This is a thirdbaseman’s glove all day every day. Notice, too, the wingtip design on the backhand.
Here is another Color Sync model but with a Trap-Eze web design. Also built as a custom look but without the custom price, expect this PRO205-4BC to work well for pitchers and thirdbaseman that want a Trap look on a custom looking glove.
Another Pro-H web on a 205 look, this traditional black and white glove comes with the traditional red wrist patch. This is also considered a color sync glove. The serial number is PRO315-6BW. Notice this glove has the wing tip design on the backhand.
Similar to the other Trap 205 gloves on this list, the one above is an all black version numbered PRO205DC-15B. This glove is a dual core version of the 205 which gives it more pliability in the pocket and a faster work in.
The finger shift glove from Rawlings is a 11.75 inch glove too. We have a full finger shift glove review dedicated to this glove. Worth a check.
Another two piece web in traditional colors and red branded wrist patch, the PRO205-9SHFS is a pitcher’s glove if we have ever seen one.
Machado’s NP5 V-Web
Manny Machado’s actual glove is a 12 inch V Web. However, to the public the glove is offered as an 11.75 inch V-Web glove. 11.75 is much more pallatable for the average human third baseman. Superheros, like Machado, need the 12 inch.
Although without the V-Web, Rawlings makes an all black NP5 with a traditional I-Web design. This is the PRONP5-2JB and a fantastic utility infielders glove.
Also, in the NP5 line, Rawligns makes a Color Sync pattern. That is, a glove that comes with a custom look but a stock glove price. It uses a traditional I-web.
The 315 model number is a bit of a wider glove when compared to the 215. It is built with a little more finger shaping.
As traditional a glove you could hope for in the H-Web pattern, Rawlings 315 black and white model is their most popular 315 glove. Serial number on this bad boy is PRO315-6BW.
With a traditional two tone look, this 315 is the only Rawlings 11.75 Heart of the Hide with a Narrow Fit wrist slot. That is, the glove is built for smaller hands or those who like a more snug fit. All the great features of a serious heart of the hid glove but built for the smaller handed player.
Another Pro-H web glove that is built just like the other in the 315 line. But, with more sleek black and red colors, expect this PRO315DC-6BSH to rock and roll this coming year.
The PRO315-2SHG is a 2017 glove built for the utility ball player. Although a bit big for most 2nd baseman, short stops and third baseman should dig this glove.
