Schalk book no bargain in South Africa


Google Alerts alerted me that my Ray Schalk: A Baseball Biography is listed on a marketplace search engine site named Jump. The book sells for 344 to 376.

That's 344 what? And where?

Turns out that Jump is based in South Africa, where the currency is the rand.

A currency converter tells me that 357 rand, the current asking price on Loot, are worth $46.03. You're better off buying the book here in the US.
