According to TMZ Sports, the New England Patriots are having hard time meeting the demand that they’ve received from fans who want to get their hands on a LeGarrette Blount jersey after his recent emergence.
The Patriots were BLINDSIDED by LeGarrette Blount’s sudden rise to superstardom — at least the official team shop was, ’cause they’re all SOLD OUT of his jerseys … and now the team is scrambling to crank out #29s before the next playoff game.
As you can tell from the Patriots official shop, you can’t get a Blount jersey.
We spoke to several shops in the Boston area, including the official Patriots team store … and the story was the same everywhere — WE’RE ALL SOLD OUT OF #29.
Makes sense, since Blount started the season as a backup running back … but now, the official Pats team shop tells TMZ Sports, they”re literally printing up Blount jerseys one-by-one at the stadium to try to keep up with the demand.
“The Patriots ProShop is one of the few stores around licensed to make customized Nike jerseys,” a rep tells us.
The rep adds, “His stock has risen. It’s very cool to be walking around in a LeGarrette Blount jersey right now.”
