I'm not really sure what value I can be to this forum. About gloves, you all have taught me everything I know. About economics, I'm not sure this is the right place to for that.

About my 'supposed' consulting, I reached out to Bob at Web Gem Glove Care, and did some marketing for him for a few months. Little pay, but good resume builder. Currently, I am a distributor for a sports equipment company called Home Run Sports in Canada. The Canadian Dollar has been quite weak with respect to the USD, and the prices of gloves have not adjusted. I noticed this arbitrage opportunity and reached out to HR Sports and told them I was willing to become an online distributor for them. I am making very little money off this as of now, but this is very little work on my end and will help diversify my resume past financial analysis.

Thanks

Mitch

This very thread and the rest of the forum talks about the value of gloves aka what the difference is for a seller's price, buyer's perceived value and willingness to pay, and the market rate and size of unique, collectible gloves. This forum oozes microeconomics.

Other than that, whether you post anything is up to you.

FLASHEM "Didn't you sell an autographed ASG glove for a handsome profit?...and post this:"


SURE DID!!!
Didnt know a damn thing about gloves and got and offer that I couldnt refuse.
It's not my fault, and I turned that around and... bought more gloves!!!
It sparked my interest in the hobby and since then i've only bought and traded gloves that A) I game and B) are older than 2005 for my own collection (cuz ya know how much these wilson kids LOVE old rawlings :/ )

You saw I picked up a minty blackhorse 6hf auto'd by Cal and broke it in right?
If I gave a rats about $, would I have done that?
That particular glove led me to this site and I'm glad it did because I've become very interested and keep my collection to 5 or 6 gloves that I actually use.
I just happened on to that one, and when I sold it, at the time I had no idea if i got a great price or if i could have sold it for even more. I wasnt greedy- someone made ME and offer and I took it. Didnt even haggle. Should I have knocked a couple hundred off of what he offered me? dont be silly...

I bought a SLCS from wake. I'd turned down offers of $500 plus and then sold it to buddy who wanted it for the EXACT price of a minty usa cmhcb2 for LESS than I paid for it a month prior.

Not sure where your going with this, but it just seems like you are going out of your way to try and start something.
I'm entitled to my opinion, as are you.
I dont agree with the gold label thing, but I've discussed it with Mitch and what he does is not my business just as what I do sure isnt yours..
So criticize whom ever about what ever you'd like, just make sure you have a leg to stand on when doing so.

I read that back, and realized it can come across snottier than I intended.
For what its worth, I just didnt think it was appropriate for someone to make an opinion or assumption on a matter that they may only be half informed on.
I opened myself up in putting in my 2 cents earlier in this conversation, but I guess I'm just under the impression that if you go out of your way to pull a quote from a post that was many months ago in the attempt to prove a point that didnt need to be proved ( or pointed for that matter ) it just seems like you are either bored, or going out of your way to stir the pot. Hopefully its the former, but, ya never know

boy, this post got a lot of attention...didn't expect that. people have been poking fun at ebay listings on here for years (be it the description, price, etc..). obviously people do what they do, and its none of our business, so long as its not hurting anyone. i just happen to think that paying a 300% of retail for a glove with what are, for the most part, artificially-applied gold labels (with the exception of the zimmerman glove) is silly. Talk about market tactics, supply & demand, and Econ 101 all you want, but just realize thats a totally different topic than what motivates most collectors that are more interested in the history /quality and evolution of things. So when we see stuff like a $800 stock glove with gold-labeled slapped on it, its amusing. nothing personal.

Anyone who believes that some guy is flipping gloves on eBay and IG as some kind of 'marketing research', deserves to pay $800 for a stock glove.

End of story.

Being away for so long...I missed all this action.

I happen to enjoy the diverse and sometimes heated conversations we have about something as simple as a baseball glove.

It's what keeps things interesting......Some are 7' tall sitting in front of their PC......just saying.
