They could have at least kept it all black. This reminds me of those old Ninja Turtles gloves.

Remember that old thread from years back about the ugliest gloves? This beats them all. Worst glove ever.

I don't get it. It could be the most functional glove in the world, but I still would not buy something that looks like that.

Its the nike-ization of sports. You can see it when they come out with equipment brighter than the sun or put oregon's football team out on the field in spacesuits without a single reference to the university colorwise. I pray nike doesnt get the mlb uniform contract.

That site can't be serious. It's like one of the Wilson brats got a website instead of selling on eBay.

I have ordered from http://www.Baseballwallstore.com and they were awesome. Their prices ar.e a bit high but they have ALL the gloves in stock and some cool looking limited editions.

I hate baseball express and eastbay because their customer service is horrible

I hear they're the go to guys if you're looking to pay a $100 markup, on gloves that are still available from the manufacturer for the regular retail price.

I completely agree.... I've asked multiple times why they price their goods 40-100 dollars on each glove but haven't gotten an answer. The mark up on gloves that are "limited edition" AKA the baseball express models is dumb.
On another note the green is just too much for the glove

Pretty sure they're just buying gloves/exclusives/store customs retail and reselling them on the site for $50-$100 (+ shipping) more than they paid, to people who don't know you can buy them direct from the actual stores for $100 less (with shipping included).

That's why there are "Buyer's Groups," and it is very difficult to get in one. I can't believe there are actually people out there buying at retail and marking the prices up and expecting to get business.

Back to the subject at hand - what a horrible looking glove. Remember McCutchen pimping one at the All Star festivities? He looked like, "I can't believe I actually have to push this piece of garbage." He couldn't drop it soon enough.

This is Scott Carpenter's domain. Let him show the world how it's done.

This is sad to see, both the huge mark ups on those other gloves as well as the Grinch-themed Nike are awful.
