I walk home from school most days. On my route is one of those discount clothing stores. One day I was curious to see if they had anything good, and they did! Cheap headphones and iPhone cases galore. I was about to leave when something caught my attention, a baseball glove! It was just a Nike Diamond Elite Edge, or whatever Nike's bottom tier glove was. And it was going for $50, the regular retail price, so while it was cool that they had gloves there, I had no interest in that glove. Then it hit me, they have gloves here. So they HAD to have a sports section. Walking around the store, I found it. Aside from the football gloves and soccer balls, I also saw more Nike Gloves. Why just Nike? I have no idea. But there they were. Just more Diamond Elite Edges, but among them some Diamond Elite Selects! Both outfield, one a 12.50 H-Web and the other a 12.75 Trap. For $50 I was thinking about it, but I didnt have enough money on me anyway. Fast forward one day later and Im back with the right amount. Only difference, they were marked down even more. Now both the Edges and the Selects were only $20! I know both arnt the greatest, but for $20 I thought It was a steal. Some worker must have just price checked the Edge and marked that low price for both series not knowing the difference. The palm is pretty thin, but once I loosened some laces, it feels great! Its also an outfield mitt which is what I play. So yea, again, not the best bargain ever, but it was still great and made my day. Hope you enjoyed my story.

I bought the 12.75 trap. Both were there the first day, but the H-web was missing the day after. Doesn't matter to me anyway as I liked the trap more. if you want to see it, I made an album of pics:

Might have been a Marshall's. I've heard of people picking up good deals on bats there sometimes.
