      Great question! Unfortunately, our gold balls are purchased a year in advanced through Nike, as they work with us to develop the unique ball every year. Every year, we increase the number of basketballs to try and ensure as many people can purchase as possible, although it is difficult to do so, as we are not merchandise retailers and cannot have a ton of inventory leftover after the event, so when they are sold out they are all gone – we don’t have an option of reordering more. And currently we do not have an online store. If I do happen to get my hands on any additional that pop up from the weekend, I will make sure to contact you!

    We wanted to purchase a gold ball for our 12 yearold grandson but there were none when we went after his game today. Is it possible to order one? Thank you Cheryl Bains
