It's unfortunate, and it's an indictment on how businesses operate. It really shouldn't be a big headache to produce a few hundred (or thousand) more jerseys in the middle of a post-season run when demand is very high, but that's just how the cookie crumbles right now. I guess I'll have to settle for picking one up for next season, but it sure would have been nice to have one to wear during this magical run.

I can’t change now, the Committee won’t have it but, yeah, it would be nice to start out with some over priced duds.

in my experience, they will typically get all new merch right before football season, for all sports. So it shouldn't b e much longer.

I waited almost a year for the new dri-fit gray hat, and it was last July when I bought it. I wore the first version out, and its now my yard work hat.

BTW, i would own everything dri-fit if they made it. Miracle fabric iyam

I don’t think it’s an indictment to say that businesses operate for profit. And that you’ll settle for getting one next season is exactly why they aren’t going to produce them for a smaller margin right now. Nike has no reason to try and rush production on Tennessee baseball unis

I'm simply saying they COULD profit right now. Businesses are profit driven. And there is extremely high demand for Tennessee baseball gear. As others before me have said, if they didn't mass produce their retail gear in Chinese sweatshops a year in advance and were more agile, they'd have no problem filling spur of the moment orders to capitalize on trends like this.

To get product turned around quickly domestically or to have it flown in would be expensive and Tennessee baseball doesn’t move the needle for them

Selling 1,000 extra TN baseball jerseys is totally irrelevant to Nike. I know that we all think it is very important, but they do not. Plain and simple.
