Shipping & Order Policy

Shipping Policy

In Stock orders are normally shipped the following business day from when they are placed. In the case of pre-order items, please note the availability date as you add that item into your shopping cart. When pre-order items are released there will usually be a heavy backorder period and these pre-orders will be shipped out on a first come, first serve basis upon release.

Please note that our busiest time of the year is during Baseball shipping (Early February to Early March) when we may have a tremendous amount of backorders. During the baseball shipping season, even in stock orders may take a few days longer to be shipped.

All orders placed online will be charged a $2 processing fee. All orders placed by phone or by mail will be charged a $5 processing fee.

Shipping Methods

The following domestic shipping options may appear in your cart during checkout:


This option is available for orders weighing under 1/2 lb. These parcels are sent via USPS and cannot be tracked. On average delivery time should be 7-14 days.

FedEx Smart Post

This shipping method is a joint endeavor between FedEx and the USPS. FedEx will deliver this to your local post office then the USPS will sort it and deliver to your home. Due to no guarantees on when USPS will sort and deliver, this delivery method has no guaranteed delivery time. On average delivery time should be 7-14 days.

FedEx Ground, 3 Day, 2 Day and Overnight Services

FedEx shipping charges are based on the weight of the order and the location to which it is being shipped and are calculated from real-time FedEx shipping rates. Our Transit map below will indicate how many business days FedEx delivery should be. Please select your FedEx service accordingly. For example, do not select Overnight Shipping if you are already in a 1 day zone.

Split Shipment Checkbox

This option is available for orders that contain both In Stock and Pre-Order items, or multiple Pre-Order items with different release dates. If you select this option, your order will be sent in as many shipments as needed depending on the products within the order and you will be charged multiple shipping and processing charges based on the amount of shipments needed to complete your order. For example if your order will be sent in two shipments you will be charged double shipping and processing. If your order will be sent in three shipments you will be charged triple shipping and processing.

If you do not select the Split Shipment options, your order will be delivered in one shipment when all products contained within the order are available.
