I scored a VERY nice reaper on eBay for a light $20. This one is in great shape, very few scuffs or stains, but in some need of leather care. The coolest part was the lacing was factory, double straight laced across. That simple detail alone probably took some dedicated worker at least an hour of their difficult work day to lace up, and I really do appreciate that. That person might be dead now, but if not, cheer to you!

Probably took less than an hour Rusty, I've seen film on the making of footballs, and showed the person that laces up and test inflates each one off the line. It boggles the mind. It's still done by hand as they haven't figured out how to make a machine do it quicker and for less....https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...CC&FORM=VRDGAR

Very cool. I like that special lacing tool they had to pull the lace through.

Another Rawlings 29P on eBay, marked down to 80 bucks from a 140. Nice looking bag, but not really worth that amount, let alone the original asking price

I see one there for $98. Not even inflated! What a rip! Air has gotta be worth a few bucks.
