Just a reminder to watch Ebay if you're looking for equipment.  I picked this West Vest up for a friend for $77.00 including shipping.

I spoke with the seller today and he is willing to drive to my brother-in-law's house to complete the transaction.

I'm the same height and chest size... So yes it makes sense. Once again I'm asking what do these usually sell for used?

At one point the Carucci was a collectors item. When Cece passed, the price spiked, especially when several MLB guys were seen wearing them in tribute to him.

 

I think that's over now, as the technology has left those protectors far behind in protection and comfort. Now, it's just the cool factor that's left.

 

If you're buying it as piece of gear to wear every day, don't. If you're buying it impress your umpire buddies, then the value is up to whatever two guys on eBay are willing to duel it out to. It's kinda like a navy plate coat. $50-250, depending how stubborn two bidders might get.

 

If you're getting one that fits you, and it's going to be worn on special occasions, I could see the price for near new one at $150. I could see it having collectors value, especially if is has any written documentation from Cece.

My best find wasn't on eBay. It was at a local Goodwill.

 

Three pair of brand new Hardwick umpire pants. Two plates, and one base. Unhemmed, and tags with the MLB umpire's number still on them.

 

This umpire is newly "retired", and I have seen some of his stuff pop up there again. Hanging out for the closet to empty.
