Updated: Ballin’ on a Budget: Best Holiday Baseball Deals on the Internet

By Charles Carr

We, like you, often have our Big League Swag dreams crushed when we fall in love with some hot new item, then get a look at the price tag…  Don’t give up hope, though.  Like the Oakland A’s, small market swag is very possible.  We’ve combed the baseball internet to provide you with some of our favorite deals and value buys. With the holidays coming around, these are some items that will give you PLUS SWAG at a reasonable cost.

BATTING GLOVES

Franklin Batting Gloves Starting at $25

Right now, you can find CFX Pro Batting Gloves on sale in a variety of colors at Baseball Express. There’s not really much else that can be said about Franklin that hasn’t already. Some of the best players in the game, including Miguel Cabrera and Ronald Acuña, trust their grip to CFX Pro batting gloves. It’s a timeless look and a great value to boot.

Shop them here for $25, and the Chrome edition colors here for $30.  In addition, FranklinSports.com is offering 25% off sitewide with code 25BF (at the time of publish).

You can also shop the Franklin Powerstrap batting gloves (which normally retail between $40-50) for $32. These are the batting gloves of choice for players like 2017 AL MVP Jose Altuve and former NL MVP Joey Votto among many others, and one of our favorite models.

FOOTWEAR

Nike Alpha Huarache Elite Cleats for $70

With Nike recently releasing the newest iteration of the Alpha Huarache Elite, you can now find last year’s model for $70. These were the 2018 game cleat of All-Stars like Nolan Arenado and Alex Bregman, and for $70 they are still a high-performance cleat at a great price.

New Balance 3000v3 Cleats for $50

In the wake of the newer Fresh Foam 3000v4, you can now cop New Balance 3000v3 cleats on Baseball Express in various colors for $50. That is an absolute steal for a top notch cleat, and you can expect several pros to continue wearing them into next season.  Often we see New Balance athletes holding onto older styles because they like them that much.

Adidas Speed Trainer 3 Turfs for $40

If you’re in the market for some turfs/BP shoes, you can find the Adidas Speed Trainer 3s for $40. These are light and breathable and are currently offered at a solid price.

Stance Sock Subscription Starting at $19

Stance has been the official sock of MLB for the last two seasons now, and they now offer a very interesting subscription model for sock fiends. Starting at $19 a month, you can select 2 pairs from a personalized list, and you can cancel or skip a shipment at any time. Choices are limited and official team socks are not available, but you can buy two pairs of Diamond Pro socks like Ronald Acuña’s, a $48 value, at $19. That’s what you call Savings Swag.

If you want a custom glove but don’t want to pay upwards of $300, check out 44 Pro. They’ve been making gloves since 2011, and have a growing list of MLB clientele, including Phillies’ first baseman Justin Bour. They offer several different patterns, and for $185 you can get a fully custom Kip leather glove (the same kind of leather used for a Rawlings Pro Preferred), with special features including gill lacing and stamped logos. They also offer several discounts for holidays throughout the year. Speaking from experience, they are high quality, and at that price point its hard to beat.

Old Machado Game Model ($210) + More Rawlings Heart of the Hide for $170+

With glove companies releasing their new models, right now is the perfect time to scoop up top notch gloves at discounted prices. Below you’ll see more of our favorite models. You can scoop up this Chocolate/Black/Grey 11.75″ Heart of the Hide NP5 V-web for $210. As you might recall, this was Manny Machado’s game model a couple of seasons back when he was still playing third base. It’s a beauty of a glove, and with HOHs retailing for $260 now, those $50 are nice savings.

Shop it here.

 

 

For $170, this 11.5″ HOH PRO204 Modified Trap in Black/Red is a steal. This glove is so clean it’ll look like you got it custom. The PRO204 is one of Rawling’s most versatile gloves, capable of being used across the infield and on the mound.

For $210, you can scoop up this very unique Black/Grey 11.75″ HOH PRO205 Wingtip H-Web. Very clean with some subtle notes of swag. The wingtip back is under-used, and the pattern and web combo are great for third base or shortstop.

Check it out here.

If you’re looking for a deal on a Pro Preferred, you can get this 11.25″ PROS12 I-Web in a classic Camel/Black color scheme for $300 ($50 off). This is the same pattern worn by Jose Reyes, and features a shallower pocket perfect for middle infielders.

This is a stunner of a glove at a great price. With its shallow pocket, Altuve’s 2018 JA27 glove is perfect for middle infielders.

For the same price you can also get Dustin Pedroia‘s 11.5″ A2000 Superskin DP15 glove.

Designed for narrower hands, the DP15 glove is perfect for middle infielders and younger players.

Can’t forget about the left-handers out there… you can pick up this left-handed 12.75″ A2000 Superskin 1799 H-Web for $182. The 1799 features a deep pocket and is the Wilson standard for professional outfielders. The predominantly black base with white binding and red stitching makes for a subtle yet sleek look.

For the one-baggers, check out this 12″ A2000 2800 in Grey and Black for $182. The 2800 features a single post-web and is Wilson’s most popular first base model, worn by Mike Napoli, Brandon Belt, and others.

Shop the righty one here and the lefty one here.

Finally, catchers can scoop up this 33″ A2000 CM33 in classic blonde and black for $182. The CM33 features deeper pocket and is designed for better scooping of balls in the dirt.
