I bought these Nike baseball pants size youth xl at Ross in the kid’s section at their regular price for $6.35 including tax. I listed them for $12.99 plus 3.99 shipping for 30 days. These pants had 40 views and sold in 12 days for a total of $16.98.
TIP: Kids sports related clothing sells great on ebay, adult sports related clothing does not. On one of my shopping trips I found an adult Nike padded football shirt, it had a retail price of $98 and was on sale for $9.99, it appeared to be a great deal. It took forever to sell that shirt, I had to reduce the price so many times, finally someone bought it, but it only ended up making me a couple of dollars, I would not waste your time or money. It makes sense there are a lot less adults playing competitive sports, therefore there is not a huge market for sports clothing.
