Blue Glove?

I found this wire photo on EBay today. I know in the modern day major leagues many players wear colorful gloves. I had no idea Dick Allen was one of the first.

(TP3) ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, March 15 - BASEBALL GLOVE BLUE - Los Andgeles Dodgers Richie Allen shows a blue glove to New York Mets Ed Kranepool and Ron Swoboda before an exhibition game here. Allen was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals. (AP WIREPHOTo) (h11750hh) 1971

Did you notice that Allen is not wearing uniform #15 in that picture? Anyone know the reason why?

Good catch, I had not noticed. It looks like he has #64.

The only answer I can think of.... Spring Training.
