Just picked up a nice, original old school 1x2 smooth black leather it's george case. What would be the best thing to use to clean it up? Black shoe polish? Mink oil? Something else?

If it's leather, use regular black shoe polish: wax polish, not liquid. Do not use mink oil on black leather.
If it's vinyl, just use Armor All..

That's what I was thinking. It is leather. Can't imagine it being any different than polishing and buffing a pair of black leather shoes

You asked about "cleaning" a black leather case- Shoe polish is NOT a cleaning agent- is is a polishing agent. Start with a top quality leather cleaner/conditioner from Meguiar or Lexol. If you then need to add more richness/color to the case/ then consider a top quality leather polish, but do the cleaning process first!!

Lexol for the win

Never use Armoral. It’s not breathable... leather will crack eventually. 303Protectant is great for leather, vinyl.

Bingo... after a lot of years of abuse my jack Justis case was looking pretty shabby. I used brown kiwi on my case multiple before putting it in storage and it looked like new again.,
