    Just by looking at it, I don't even like what the construction of the glove looks like. I can't imagine any baseball player worth a shit buying this.

    Unlike other baseball gloves, these could be subject to big reductions on price, mark downs etc. like other items, so lets hope for a nicer price in the long run [​IMG]

    my glove right now retails for $400 and that's the most expensive baseball glove on the market
    well, at least until now...


    What makes a glove worth $400?

    What makes a glove worth $400?

    the materials and construction: italian leather, wool padding, calfskin palm, hand sewn welt, embroidered labels, etc.

    here's a site that gives more info about it
    http://www.rawlings.com/primo/rawlin...the-glove.html

    either way, i still think it's ridiculous
    i got it for $200 off of ebay when cashback was at 35%

    I doubt very many of those guys can even throw a ball.

    And what makes you think you're good enough to be using a glove that retails for $400? Just kidding. I'm actually interested in the make up of a $400 glove too.

    I don't see why a die-hard baseball fan wouldn't buy a $400 glove...

    There's baseball cards worth more than that. People buy multiple pairs of $300 jeans, people that aren't good cyclists buy $3000+ road bikes. Women buy $600 purses etc. Any good Surfboard costs $350- $600. If baseball is your passion $400 isn't that much for a very awesome glove.

    However the denim glove is just lame...

    What's next? A lacrosse stick with selvedge denim for a pocket? There are baseball gloves that are worth $400-just not this one.

    A $400 dollar glove is completely excessive and should only be used if someone else (agent or team) is buying or you have a ridiculous MLB contract and cash flow. I was given that rawlings "primo" to try out and I hated it. It was HEAVY... felt like it had just been treated with too many oils and creams.

    When i order my gloves I get the heart of the hide leather which retail for about $160 and they suit me just fine.

    Rawlings positions the primo glove as a piece that will last for years and years on end, but every year professional baseball players (even a lot of the minor leaguers) get more than they could use in a season.
