$40 per dozen is about as cheap as you will consistently find a good baseball.
Be careful because you can spend a lot of money for terrible baseballs. The prices wildly fluctuate for the exact same baseballs depending upon where you buy them.
A1010 is a good ball–I would dare say a very good ball. I purchased 3 dozen blems however and I found some of the horseshoes were mis-shapen. Out of the 3 dozen, 7 of them weighed exactly 5 oz. The majority were 5 1/8 oz or 5 1/4 oz. There were two baseballs that were outside of the legal range of baseball specifications–which went directly into the BP buckets. Yes, I weigh my baseballs and put a different mark on the ball depending upon the weight.
The two dozen DBR-1 that I bought this winter were almost all 5 1/8 oz with a few at 5 and a few at 5 1/4. None of them were outside of the legal specified range. I liked them so much, I bought another dozen.
Now, all my A1010S balls are in the BP buckets and we use the Diamonds for pitching only.
I have ordered some of the Champro CBB-300s and I’ll be trying out the Baden Perfection 3B this summer when I need to replenish my supply because these are the official tournament baseball for my son’s HS league. I’ll let you know.
