Finding a cheap holiday ham is like a sport

Featured Recipe: Marmalade-Glazed Ham
We make a sport out of seeing how little we can pay per pound for our holiday ham. The delectability of a ham does not depend on paying a lot of money for it. A very cheap ham tastes just as wonderful as a very expensive one. That’s especially true if you bake the ham with our marvelous marmalade glaze. (Click here for the recipe.)
We’re so partial to our glaze that we prefer to buy an unglazed ham, which costs a fraction of one already-sliced and glazed. Slicing a ham just isn’t that difficult. (We’ve even been known to wash the glaze off a spiral-sliced ham we bought at a rock-bottom sale in order to use our glaze instead!)
What's the cheapest price per pound you've ever found for a ham?

What you're saying..
I was thrilled to see your column in the Charlotte Observer this morning.
A friend gave me your first book as a Christmas present one year. I use it all the time. Actually, we had Two-for One Noodles last night. I've purchased all your books. When we moved, the cookbooks were packed up in storage. I went out and purchased more just to have them with me! I rely on them so much.
Just wanted you to know I’m a faithful follower.
