Play It Again Sports

It had been a while since I have been to Play It Again Sports (PIAS), but after seeing countless deals that my vintage collector Facebook group had been finding, I had to stop in.

They did have a bunch of weights.  They buy weights at 45 cents/pound and sell at 90 cents per pound.  All weights are created equal so CAP metal hexes are 90 cents a pound and Troy Urethane Coated are 90 cents a pound.  It was difficult for me to walk away from the Troy 40s.  Bumpers and Steel plates are all priced equally so VTX bumpers are 90 cents a pound and CAP steel plates are 90 cents a pound.  I really wanted to get the VTX 45s, 25s and 10s, but settled for just the 10s.  I could not walk away empty handed.

They also had a few bars including a Gopher Safety Squat Bar which retails for $400 on sale for $80.  They had an Archon football bar for $60.  They also had a short Olympic Bar and an Olympic Curl Bar.  

I could definitely see myself stopping in on a regular basis, but would not want to get into the flipping game.  I have certainly sold weights for over $1/pound on Facebook and Craigslist, but it is not worth the pain.  It would be unlikely that I sell to PIAS as I can minimally do 50-75 cents/pound on Facebook and Craigslist.
