Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. already has custom Nike gloves after jaw-dropping catch


Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham has only played in a handful of NFL games, but he already has custom Nike gloves.

Beckham became a household name with an incredible leaping, one-handed touchdown catch last weekend against the Dallas Cowboys on NBC's "Sunday Night Football." He was wearing Nike gloves when he hauled the score in.

The sporting apparel company has given the wideout a pair of Air Vapor 3.0 gloves with a silhouette of the amazing catch and the words "Beckham legendary" embossed on them.

The were presented to him in a custom wood case with "THE CATCH 11.23.14" carved on the inside of the lid.

Fingerprints are also embossed on the thumb, pointer and middle finger -- the three digits with which he caught the ball.

Beckham signed an endorsement deal with Nike prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, in which the Giants picked him 12th overall. He is fast becoming one of the company's top names among a stable of A-list athletes.

He had previously worn Nike gloves with the Giants colors and logo that are also worn by other wide receivers. The gloves come in pairs made to match the colors and logos of each NFL team.

But now Beckham has unique gloves to match his one-of-a-kind catch, which many say is the greatest in NFL history.

His legend only grew stronger this week after footage emerged of him kicking a spinning football for a 32-yard field goal during practice.

The Cowboys may have won the pivotal NFC East matchup, but Nike doesn't make special gloves just for beating an opponent.
