The largest in-stock sitewide sale in the history of the MLB.com Shop is underway now that we're in the heart of holiday shopping, and this 33-percent-off lunchtime sale just happens to perfectly coincide with all the other Major League Baseball shopping that is going on in San Diego at the Winter Meetings.
Tens of thousands of items across the MLB.com Shop are discounted, including already-reduced clearance items. It's your last chance to get MLB gifts at these kinds of prices, and you might want to start with the Authentic Double Climate On-Field Jacket, which goes from $134.99 to $90.45.
Here's an MLB.com Shop exclusive for her: A Holiday PJ Set from Concept Sports, and if you order during this lunchtime sale, it goes from $34.99 to $23.33. It's in stock and leaves the warehouse in 1-2 days, so the timing is perfect.
One word: Sweatshirts.
If you want what's hot at the MLB.com Shop this holiday season, then just follow the top rankings of sales there. Derek Jeter stuff is flying since the Yankees captain's retirement, and you can find some great sales in his T-shirt collection.
"Anytime you see his face, you're going to think New York Yankees, you're going to think MLB player," said Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt, speaking earlier this week at a Men's Journal Gear Lab pop-up store in New York. "The guy was awesome. I have a lot of respect for him. I've played against him a few times, I've watched him quite a bit, and he just handled himself like a true professional. You never saw him in the papers for anything dumb. You never saw him in any kind of chaos or any kind of controversial situation. He handled himself well in a very, very tough city. ... it's pretty special."
Affeldt helped make possible many other top-sellers at the MLB.com Shop, including the World Series Champions Collector's Edition Set DVD and the same Authentic World Series Champions 39THIRTY Stretch Fit Cap from New Era that he and his Giants teammates wore after beating Kansas City in Game 7. This is a good time to find big savings in the overall Giants World Champions Collection.
Be sure you check to make sure it says "in stock" on the item page to get the 33-percent discount. When in doubt, or after the last shipping deadline has passed, remember that MLB.com online gift certificates in any denomination via email are safe bets for any fan.
