Anybody have a good link for Duke basketball jerseys. My 16 year old son wants a Singler jersey and i have had no luck can somebody help me?
IIRC correctly you cannot get jerseys with college names on them, as the athletes would get a cut and cannot make money on merchandise, or something like that. You've gotta get a jersey and have the name put on yourself.
Can you get a personalized jersey by number as well as name? I want a # 6 with "C. Crazy" as the name.
EDIT: I have scoured my usual websites and they are completely sold out.

Be wary of this guy on ebay:
He advertises items he doesn't have and takes forever to tell you this and refund your money. He nearly ruined valentine's day this year holding out on a Duke Swingman Jersey for my ladylove.
Thanks god for chocolate!
If being a fan were logical, we'd all be Duke fans but some of us were born to a different blue.
What is a swingman jersey?
No rich people were harmed in the making of this recession.
Duke jersey freak here! FWIW, the Coach K "Legacy" Collection has jerseys of former Duke players complete with the names on the back. I find these quite desirable and have almost all of them. So far it's been only retired numbers plus Elton Brand and Wojo. Maybe Singler will get to that point someday!
They are here
But as for your question, I wouldn't be surprised to see #12 jerseys popping up in the student store later this summer, sans the name obviously. You could get a name put on the back very easily - I bought a #11 Duke jersey from Eastbay years and years ago and got a sports outfitting store to put "Hurley" on the back. It's still on display almost 20 years later.
Any 15 jerseys you think will be coming out along with the 12's? Or will we see more 3's and 30's this year?
The NCAA takes that prohibition on current players' names rather seriously. I remember that after the 1989 Duke-Georgetown regional final, the bookstore started selling shirts saying The Mourning After (after Alonzo, of course). They had to pull them later that same day.
After that Phil Henderson slam dunk, that would have been a nice shirt to have.
There have been times when as many as 5 numbers from that year's team have been available at the East Campus store. They tend to have more of the random numbers there.
We know for sure there will be #'s 2, 3, and 30 because they are on the website...they might as well round it out with 12 and 15 when school starts back up!
I love those Laettner, Hurley, Hill blueblack jerseys.
P.S. Swingman jerseys are the level between the screenprinted replicas and authentics. Nike stopped making authentic jerseys after the 2002 season. Swingman are stitched, but are not made of all of the same high quality materials as the authentics. They also have swooshes on the left shoulders like the replicas. Nike tags them as authentics, but they aren't.

I've been trying for years to find a place that sells custom jerseys with what ever name and number you want and have had no luck. I'm surprised that the campus bookstore or some place like the Duck Shop doesn't sell them but they don't. I would think that there would be a pretty good market for such things, I know that a lot of people buy custom pro jerseys. Maybe we should start a email campaign with the athletic department!
Not as exciting: replica price jumps to $60 this year (except for #3, which is $45, and is the older style of neck as opposed to the new style). The Coach K Legacy jerseys with the name on the back are a much better deal at $55, though they don't sell those in the store so shipping would be involved. But even then, Coach K Legacy at $55 plus shipping > generic replica for $60.
Twill replicas are $75, which, IMO, is a bit much for something that isn't even comfortable.
