LeGarrette Blount jerseys are flying off the racks

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.”
