Scored Big on eBay

Just a follow-up on my OP from the System 7 Sizing Thread.

To buy a new CP I had to sell one of mine. So I decided to sell my old West Vest Douglas that I had modified with the extra pads.

I put it on eBay with a starting price of $90.00.

On the last day of the auction it was up to $120. I was happy with that. But then with about 20 seconds to go it started going up to $160-170

Then when I looked at it after the auction ended it jump to $281 WOW! :nod:

Now time to start looking at a New CP and Leg Guards!!!

Similar to the bump my Jim Rice autograph from 1977 took when he finally went to the HOF. Maybe you should see if the buyer wants you to ink it for them. If adding a couple of plates to my Douglas will double its value maybe I should send it away right now.

So, do I decide to put my Douglas up before my Carlucci, or vice versa?

There were three guys yesterday willing to around $275 for that Douglas, meaning two were shut out. Now they're pissed they didn't go 3 bills, and are stuck with their damn Davishield. You do the math.

I am doing the math. The best part is, of all my hardshells, the Douglas cost me the least--and it's only 18 months old.

Just remember that my Douglas was Modified and it was the older West Vest.

Rolando, I remember when you scored that Douglas/WV on eBay, .... what price was that???? ;)

Around $70 :nod:

You only QUADROUPLED your money, ...jeeeeeez......what's the big deal!? ;)

Well I did pay to have the Mods done. So I almost tripled my investment.

That money is long gone!

I am leaning towards getting the Rite Temo pads. The last few games have been brutal in this heat.

      Never used, still in the bag with the fresh smell....Force 3 V2 Chest Protector...Inbox your best offer...

      Looking for a new chest protector because my old one is a soft shell. Any recommendations on what I should and should not get and where can I get a good deal on one? Any advice helps thanks!

      I’m looking for a good low profile chest protector with SMALL shoulder pads. I’m about 5’6, 160 with an athletic build. I currently wear the Champion Body Armor, which is a good fit, but the shoulder pads are too big. I’ve tried the Wilson Gold, but the shoulder pads still seem too big. Maybe I’m trippin’, but I think I look like a linebacker. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hello all,
      I have been using a West Vest Gold for the past couple of seasons and while the protection has been phenomenal, the whole thing feels bulky and does leave my lower ribs (it is the largest sized of the three sizes Wilson offers) and abdomen exposed. With that in mind, I'm looking at getting a Force 3 protector after reading some of the smaller reviews in places like ump-attire, but was looking to see if anyone had anymore feedback that was a bit more in-depth. Primarily using it for varsity level high school ball
       
      Any help/feedback would be appreciated greatly

      Does anyone have experience with this CP?  I was doing some research for a new CP yesterday and came across a new web site, allamericansportsshop.net.  Is this brand the same as Champion?  I assume it is but with a new logo.  I have never seen this model before.  I may have just overlooked it. This looks like a much better CP than they have made in the past. Looks very solid.  I would like to see what the harness looks also.  I was about just about set on going with the Schutt XV HDX until I saw this.  They are the same price, but this looks a like it would fit the body a little better. Any suggestions?
