Still-jubilant Red Sox fans were the power shoppers on Cyber Monday at the MLB.com Shop , as World Series championship merchandise accounted for the top five overall grossing products on one of the busiest days in the site's history: T-shirt , cap , Collector's Edition DVD set , hood and crew , in order.
All 30 fan bases were in on the Cyber Monday action, of course, and Major League Baseball Advanced Media is accommodating everyone's interests by extending the big sale to 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Buy any item at the Shop and get a second item of equal or lesser value for 50 percent off.
The MLB.com Gift Guru scoured each Official Brand Shop for examples of how you can get the most out of this opportunity in your holiday shopping. Here are some tips:
Memory Company: The Sublimated Pint Glass 2-Pack is one of the hot sellers at the Shop this year, so this one is pretty obvious. Buy one for $27.99 and add the same item at half off, making it four of these glasses in someone's cabinet for only $41.
Highland Mint: These gorgeous displays are traditionally perfect gifts for anyone on your list. For example, commemorate the Pirates' postseason appearance by ordering an Andrew McCutchen NL MVP Dirt Coin Photo Mint for $99, then take half off so you also can get that Willie Stargell Photo Mint for just $45. If you're decorating a tree, then look at the Silver Coin Ornament . It's just $14.99, so get a pair for under $23.
Majestic Athletic: J.B. Shuck is among those nominated for a GIBBY Award for Play of the Year, and you can celebrate his emergence with a No. 3 Angels Alternate Cool Base Jersey for $304.99. Then that Authentic Double Climate On-Field Jacket is just $67.50 instead of the usual $134.99.
New Era: Red Sox fans can keep celebrating by ordering the World Series Champion 59FIFTY Fitted Cap for $37.99 and then score the 39THIRTY version -- worn by players in the clubhouse after beating the Cardinals in Game 6 -- for half off the usual $32.99.
The Emblem Source: There are patches for every team, and let's use the Twins as an example of what $18.72 can buy you on Cyber Monday. It's $12.99 for the 2014 All-Star Game patch and then just $6.50 for the 1965 version .
G-III: Cyber Monday has you covered for under $90 with a great all-season package. Start with the Veteran Lightweight Hooded Jacket for $69.99, and then take half off the usual $39.99 for the On-Deck Swim Trunks .
When in doubt or after the last shipping deadline has passed in December, remember that MLB.com online gift certificates in any denomination via e-mail are safe bets for any fan.
