    I completely understand why they don't, but I really wish they would do these sales online for those of us who are nowhere near Durham

    logistical issues aside, they don't need to. last time i got there 30 mins after it opened, and the place was 100% picked through. it's like the wild west.

    needless to say, i'll be there I need athletic equipment for the next 3 years! some great deals to be had.

    I know before they let athletic dept staff go first. That's why the best stuff was gone before the public got in there. I've nabbed some great deals in the past, but they've upped their prices.

    The whole point is to get rid of all the stuff that didnít sell online. Duke Stores is still a relatively small operation, itís easier to just dump all this stuff on some folding tables and let the vultures go at it.

    This is not Duke Stores. This is the athletic dept selling off leftover gear. They started doing this a number of years ago. I've scored buying stuff off the volleyball table b/c they had tall sizes. Also got some great court shoes and tennis skirts leftover from the women's tennis team. Some stuff has Duke on them, others not.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification. That makes more sense. How much are Zionís shoes going for? Probably not much, since they canít even last a whole game. I know, too soon...

    I fear if they were to do that, it would just turn into a bidding war, it would also likely have more traffic than they would want to handle.

    I don't like in the area, but I also don't mind that it's just another way Duke is doing things for the local community. Certainly would be cool to grab a pair of shorts for $15, but it's just one of those things, as you said.

    I am "intrigued", as they say.

    I presume all this stuff is all Nike branded and provided at no (direct) cost to Duke as part of its contract with the athletic department.

    I have a picture in mind of a big Nike yard sale with a bunch of cafeteria tables to get rid of all the leftovers in the closets and drawers, as part of ending the school year and getting ready for next fall's swag. (because you know there will be several new flavors of unis and practice gear, each year, every year).

    The value would be in clearing the shelves, not making any real money. The athletic department probably nets a couple grand that in the grand scheme of things is not much more than spare change in the couch cushions. Hope they buy the managers and staff a bunch of pizzas and beer or something.

    I for one, would enjoy trying on a pair of 4XT sweats / warmup pants for laughs. And which athletes would need XS sizes?

    That said, I would probably sell a surplus young Turk for an official "Duke Brotherhood" clothing item of sort, and would mark my calendar for next year...

    Since they likely did not sell anything with iconic ball and basket inside "iron D," or "brotherhood" logo stuff, I've lost interest. Don't need any black sh*t, either. Or grey. Or any other non-Duke color. During last trip to campus, for 2018 basketball dinner, snagged nice blue 2010 championship shirt for $3. It's a nike product, so who knows how long that will last.

    Not all Nike. I have bought Under Armor compression pants and tennis skirts, Adidas shorts, Croc flip flops, etc.

    Now I am even more intrigued (or perhaps ill-informed) about what's included or not in the Nike deal.

    Perhaps I jumped to conclusions about all Duke athletic teams having to be 100% Nike. Maybe it's just the unis, warmups, bags, and such. I guess no one would care (or it's not in the contract) if DUAA buys a bunch of Under Armor compression pants without a Duke logo or aren't branded in any other way.

    At least one of the tennis skirts was Under Armor w/ Duke logo. And I have an awesome long-sleeved micro-fiber Under Armor shirt with Duke Lacrosse on it. I can't imagine that they would be committed to buying every single piece of clothing for every sport from Nike.

    Are you, yet, even MORE intrigued?

    The transition to Duke being an all-sports Nike school was only complete in fall semester 2011. The surplus sale sells lots of old stuff (there were basketball shorts going back to the 90s shown on social media). That's the reason non-Nike stuff was sold. The only non-Nike products used by the athletic department are generally things that Nike doesn't make (such as batting helmets, which they stopped making) or on rare occasions when Nike makes products that the sport's coaches think is substantially inferior to other manufacturers.

    Yeah, I've noticed that the lacrosse teams wears an assortment of brands' protective gear and sticks/heads. Mike has their own line for everything but helemts but I don't think much more fun it stacks up very well against warrior, stx, brine and maverik. And that doesn't even count new up starts like ecd, string king, epoch and dragonfly. Under armour also has their own line but plays second fiddle to the lacrosse only companies too.
