NEWS: Nike MLB E-Distribution Update

Posted on Oct 6th 2020

Sports World Friends,

We hope everybody is staying safe, healthy and positive through these difficult times!

As a small company with only one location, our business is not immune to challenging economic conditions. In order to be transparent with our customers, we are informing you of a new electronic distribution policy NIKE has placed on small to medium size businesses with regards to MLB and NFL products. Per these new e-distribution restrictions, we are only permitted to sell NIKE items via e-mail or phone order from our website.

JUST TO CLARIFY, we are permitted to sell NIKE fanwear in our store, but are limited to how we can sell these items on

Therefore, being the compliant partners we are, we have restricted your ability to checkout on all NIKE items for the time being. We have implemented an e-mail and phone ordering system to help simplify ordering and are offering a FREE GIFT with the purchase of any NIKE product! We hope this will not deter you from purchasing NIKE or any other brand of product from us.

Please, any and all support is appreciated, as we know from your past purchases, that shopping small is a priority of yours. We promise to continue to always carry the newest, hottest and best available items for all your favorite teams!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and chat.
