Rising glove prices does not mean you can’t score a great deal on a great glove, as is the case with the 42%-off 2016 Wilson A2K DATDUDE that has everything you want for shortstop or second base:
- An awesome middle infield pattern: The DATDUDE pattern measures at 11.5” and has a super shallow pocket for quick transfers. Plus, it has a sick (and unique) clawed back design.
- A sweet colorway: The black, blonde, and red base colors alone gel together nicely, but the addition of back “Snake Skin” on the finger backs raises the level of cool to another level.
- Built with high quality materials: Overall, A2K materials are simply top-notch – the leather quality is outstanding, the craftsmanship exceptional – and are built to last many seasons.
- Steep discount: $360 is a lot of a baseball glove, but the 2016 Wilson A2K DATDUDE is discounted 42% – a mind-boggling discount for a glove of this caliber.
The Bottom Line: Deals like this are extremely rare, especially for a mitt that feels great in person and simply has it all: a great pattern for the middle infield, a stylish colorway, and a slew of high quality materials.
Based on overall value, few gloves can currently rival the 2016 Wilson A2K DATDUDE. Therefore, if you are a shortstop or second basemen looking for a new glove, this glove should top your list of potential buys.
