I got the final sales total tonight. He didn’t have the number of items sold (I will find that out tomorrow), but the final dollar amount was $10,122. That’s pretty remarkable, especially considering it was only advertised on here and with 4 tweets on my personal account (two of which I had to delete).

Imagine how much better they could do with the social media resources of the bookstore?!?! I think this proves our point - the demand is there.

Or even if they linked the page it to a QR code at the games or in the green/gold rooms.

Sucks they are having supply issues on items and sizes. Maybe with the results of the sale they’ll be more willing to add more options next time.

Thanks again for all the hard work.

Will be interested to know how many items/unique buyers, but no matter what, 10k+ is impressive. Collegiate licensing agreements typically have a royalty rate of 10-15%. So I’d say Gunnie just contributed $1,000 - $1,500 to Athletics, and that should be recognized.

Helluva job, good work Gunnie appreciate the time and effort you put into making this a success. Hopefully this opens some eyes and the situation improves for next season.

Final numbers: 202 items sold. 108 different people placed orders. $10,122 total sales.

Hopefully enough to show the bookstore or other outlets that the demand is there. I think worst case scenario, we showed that a flash store during the preseason is warranted every year.

Agreed -- this would be great to coincide with season ticket renewals in the summer or something along those lines. Make it so orders arrive a week or two before the first game to kick start engagement on social media.

If we can get the new designs from someone in the athletic department as soon as the players/staff get the new gear, I don't think it would be a problem.

These are really incredible numbers, well done.

Sorry if slightly off-topic, or even against rules, but with the bookstore releasing their 'jersey', may I present an alternative?

I have not used them for Mason gear, but it seems promising?

I've seen that before - it's a pretty big gamble because you really have no idea of what you are getting. No pics of the actual jersey. Having said that, go for it! I would love to see what the finished product looks like.

Something else I've stumbled on and waiting for - this place has a lot of different options for jersey customization: https://www.fansidea.com/

They can't do the Mason jersey in the Mason fonts, but I've bought a few blank jerseys that match our style trim. They've shipped, but they are coming from overseas and haven't arrived yet. I'll add vinyl Mason names/numbers myself and see how they come out. They don't have the exact match for our home white jersey, but they have the others:

Hit or miss... but it can be pretty good quality. A Dayton fan posted on twitter of his DHGate Jersey. The top one was from DH Gate compared to the bottom picture from Dick's Sporting Goods. I'm sure the lighting is off bc the DHGate one looks almost orange.

For what it is worth, related to the quality of DHGate jerseys. I have 4 Caps Jerseys. The first one I bought from the official store and it cost around of $250 (wanted to give them their rightful business).

I later, over a period of time, ordered 3 more form DHGate and the quality is almost as good as the original, and one of them I can't tell the difference. They look almost identical. I think I paid about $20 for the DHGate versions. The only downside is the ~2 month delay in getting them.
