Makes me wonder how much is spread around through the programs. Those are questions I will be asking and soon. Obviously I believe we should be taking care of our athletes or I wouldn't donate. Only getting 8% of profit on your direct merchandise leaves several questions for me to spyre coming soon
As far as I know, Spyre doesn’t directly sell anything for any baseball players- at least not in their online shop. They don’t sell individual apparel, but they do sell autographs for their players. All of their apparel is general school apparel.
8% sounds like a deal with a clothing manufacturer. Spyre has repeatedly said and reported after a year that at least 90% of the club payments go to the athletes. Many are tied to events and their interview series. There is no telling how much Jalin Hyatt made after the Bama game because they sold his autographed picture at a “name your price” at a minimum of $25 each. He is a perfect example of how an athlete’s performance made him money. Unfortunately, football and basketball are always going to be bigger and make more money.
Edit: I see the newest post, and Spyre does negotiate other deals for athletes, but they don’t directly sell them. Spyre is the agent in this scenario. My guess is the shops only want to use Spyre? But I would be curious as to what Spyre actually makes on each shirt sold in an outside deal. Business-wise, no one is making 90% off that. I think Spyre has been very good at being transparent, and they are obviously making a difference.
