Good news, sports fans. If you want to bring home merchandise from your favorite team in any major sports league, you'll find it here in NYC. Below we list some of the best places around town to shop for sports swag.
This store has merchandise for every NBA and WNBA team. The coolest feature here is probably the giant touch screen on which you can design a home or away jersey for any team with any name on it; your custom order will be ready to take home that day—usually in a matter of minutes. Plus, there's free pop-a-shot.

Opposite Bryant Park—right by the 7 train, which can take you out to Citi Field—this is the place to buy all things related to the 2015 National League champions. Besides the expected shirts, caps and jerseys, you'll find stuff like Mets greeting cards.

The Yankees' team store has six locations in New York City, not counting the one in Yankee Stadium itself. There are pinstripes everywhere, even on merchandise like scarves and onesies.
There's no official NFL store, but East Coast chain Modell's is pretty well stocked with merchandise for all New York City teams, including the Jets and Giants. Plus, you heard the jingle.
If you see a local sporting a shirt bearing the Tottenham Hotspur rooster, chances are she purchased it at Upper 90. This gigantic soccer store has two New York City locations (in Downtown Brooklyn and on the Upper East Side) and is the best place to track down a hard-to-find kit from Major League Soccer or any major European league.
