With hundreds of different baseball gloves and softball gloves available for purchase at any time on JustGloves, shopping for a new model can be a tall task. Add in the generally higher costs along with an extensive break-in period, and you might find yourself second-guessing the idea of buying a new glove in the first place. One alternative option is to buy a used baseball glove or a used softball glove. If you’ve ever considered buying used or find yourself interested in the benefits of used gloves, you’ve landed at the perfect place.
“Every used glove purchased through JustGloves comes with a 30-day guarantee which allows shoppers to return their glove, no questions asked, for a full refund within 30 days of the purchase date.”
Used Glove Quality
When shopping for a used glove, it is essential to know the quality of your purchasing glove. That is why JustGloves created criteria to help the shopper best understand what to expect when buying their next used glove. We have two determinations on the used gloves we sell.
Excellent Condition - The glove is in excellent structural condition and may only have minor visual or cosmetic imperfections.
Good Condition - This glove is structurally sound but may have cosmetic imperfections such as nicks and scratches expected with regular play.
We do not sell any used gloves in a condition determined to be less than good. This is because we are in the business of providing players with high-quality gloves that will give them the confidence to play at their fullest potential. We are not in the business of moving old, tattered gloves to make a sale. Gloves determined to not be in good enough condition to be sold at JustGloves again are often donated.
Avoid Breaking In a Glove
We’ve all been there. Your brand-new glove finally arrives in the mail. You open the box, pull out the glove, and… huh? It’s as stiff as aboard.
Now, there are two alternatives to this predicament. Your first option is to purchase a used glove. Used gloves will arrive with more supple, broken leather that won’t require near the amount of time or energy to break it in that a new glove requires, which means that you’ll be able to use your glove in-game action sooner rather than later.
Your second option is to purchase a new glove through JustGloves and add Trusted Glove Prep at checkout. We’ll task our team of Glove Experts to oil and soften your leather for you. While it is not a complete break-in program, Trusted Glove Prep will expedite the glove break-in process and prepare your glove for the maximum lifespan.
Used Glove Guarantee
Are you shopping for a used baseball or softball glove? JustGloves is the best place to grab a used glove. Every used glove purchased through JustGloves comes with a 30-day guarantee which allows shoppers to return their glove, no questions asked, for a full refund within 30 days of the purchase date. Although manufacturer’s warranties do not apply to used gloves, our guarantee assures that you or your player is satisfied with the purchase.
There’s a smarter way to shop for baseball and softball equipment. Generally speaking, used gloves are marked down roughly 20% - 40% compared to the new version of the same model. That means if you are looking at a $200+ glove like a Rawlings Heart of the Hide or a Wilson A2000, buying a used version of the same glove would save you somewhere between $40 to $80.
What about used bats? Shopping for used bats can save you even more money than used gloves can. You can save upwards of hundreds of dollars when you purchase a used bat through JustBats. Just like a used glove through JustGloves, used bats from JustBats offer a full 30-day guarantee on every purchase!
