This Sunday ad caught my eye as my wife was throwing it in the recycle bin.

I can imagine some kid (or adult?) thinking "wow, Derek Jeter shops and walmart for his gloves...so I should too..."

GOLD GLOVE PRO-12tc for $99.97 is such a deal

but then i find this on ebay, (how do these guys sell it 40% off?)

Simple really...

eBay is not a retail price market, with set markup % in various categories. WM certainly has a mark up % they are trying to hit. The cost of the glove is probably similar for both the seller and WM or a Sporting Goods store, unless the glove is last year's model or even older. In that case, the eBay seller may be even more inclined to sell at a smaller margin.
