Leveling with the dungeon finder means that the gear requirements gap from level 69 to 70 is huge. Regular
69 burning crusade dungeons are totally inferior to their wotlk equivalents.
This means that tanks are going to want to buy gear quickly in order to allow them to continue using the dungeon finder for leveling. That's where you come in and make a killing.
The Cobalt Trinagle Shield has the largest markup by far because every single tank is going to need this going from 69 to 70. What's more, level 70's who are starting the game a new or who are alts which never acquired tanking gear in burning crusade will pay huge sums of money for this crucial tanking item. I've seen them sell and have sold them for over a 100 gold. Your mileage will probably vary but I'm sure you'll make a profit with at least a few of the cobalt pieces on any given day.
There's another area in the game where the tanking gear gap is just as big if not more than from BC to WOTLK. No it's not Vanilla to BC. It's level 14 to 15. Once tanks reach level 15 they most likely need to grab a shield as well as some stamina pieces from the auction house. Level 15 shields can sell upwards of 30 gold! See if you can't take advantage of the lowbie tanking market in addition to the Cobalt items discussed in this post.
