For me it was kind of a sad feeling once my son headed off to college....no more buying/selling baseball gear, as he gets more than enough thru the program now. We always enjoyed trying new things. I got to be pretty efficient with Ebay lol. Heck, we ordered a 30-22 for him when he was 12 or so and the company sent a brand new 33-30 by mistake (it was about $150 more) I called them....they said it's not worth our hassle to have you send it back...just keep it if you want it. Needless to say, I resold it at a tidy profit.
That being said....the fact that I no longer have to buy gear leaves my wallet quite a bit fatter I really can't remember the last time I bought something baseball related
