A blister type packaging, housing at least one golf glove, has a device and indicia incorporated within the package whereby a user may estimate his/her glove size by merely placing his/her hand on a measuring station that will determine glove size by the length of the middle finger. The package will have incorporated a stop-tab, that the user will wedge between the web junction of his/her index and middle fingers, which will serve as a orientation or reference point for the correct positioning of the hand. The stop-tab is an integral part of the package, and helps to make the packages stackable with each other by nestling within the indentation of an adjoining package.
