Baseball.net sold via Flippa, price was $15,100.

Was sold in 2008 at TRAFFIC conference for $52,500. That's a big loss for the owner. Could have changed owners between then.

Is .NET just not a good extension for resell?

Kids play baseball in schools and leagues. Its actually real popular. Dads that know their kids dont have the genes to play America football or the height of Basketball, will push them into Baseball very young because you still can be successful at it at average size and height (the soccer of America). Hardball generally ends for people at the High School level. Then some adult softball and beer if still interested. Pro Baseball fans are usually people that participated in this process when they were young.

For European people, its a non interesting, quite boring, sport. I respect the American supporters. My previous post was obviously humorous.

As popular as the word baseball is, ways of making money on it are probably limited, imo.
Dot net still managed to fetch up to high 5 figures in 2017.

I don't have the stats, but overall domain prices seem progressively lower since 2008, including dot com with the exception of 2 an 3 letter/number domains and a very few other niches. Also, the number of reported sales in all tlds is a fraction of those reported in 2008.

Just look at the recently reported sales list at a popular venue. For the prior week, the list is as short as ever and the top reported sale was a dot com at $30,000.

Its not the .net extention, its the end user price the buyer purchased in 2008, and then he could not resell it for a profit.
That was a really bad bad investment, he learned his lesson the hard way! lol
