words // Brandon Richard
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose wears many hats, but one of his lesser known roles may be status as a member of the advisory staff for Wilson Sporting Goods. So when the Chicago native shocked the world by becoming the youngest player to ever claim the NBA MVP Award, Wilson decided to commemorate him with a special limited edition MVP Basketball, which can be yours today.
The officially sized basketball features a design that was chosen by fans and embodies Derrick’s passion for the game, love of family and the city he has always called home, Chicago. Other features include pebbled leather panels, rubber cover material and a custom laser-engraved Derrick Rose logo and facsimile signature. The ball ships inflated and is available at the low sale price of $10 over at Eastbay today.
Display your range on the diamond with the all new Wilson A2K Brandon Phillips Gameday Glove. Arguably one of the best 2nd basemen in the game, Phillips holds things down for the Cincinnati Reds in one of the highest quality gloves Wilson has to offer.
Crafted from natural materials, the Wilson A2K enhances Phillips’ game with the help of a Dual-Welting finger pocket, and an ultra-breathable Dri-Lex wrist lining.

With the MLB Playoffs getting underway today, I figured this week’s wallpaper would be a good time to share one of the upcoming Eastbay Exclusives. The New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has worn a Wilson catcher’s mitt for a few seasons now, but soon you’ll be able to get the same glove he wears on the field, here at Eastbay. The Wilson A2000 Jorge Posada model can be seen throughout the playoffs as the Yankees look to add their 28th World Championship to their storied history.
Look for this to be available at Eastbay around the first of the year.

Although Brandon Phillips has struggled at the plate recently, the 2008 Gold Glove winner has a couple things going his way. First off, his Cincinnati Reds team should be clinching their first playoff birth since 1995 any day now. Secondly, Brandon Phillips’ impressive glove work has made him one of the select few players to have their Player Exclusive baseball gloves made available to the public.
Phillips’ Wilson A2K glove is detailed with red piping and lacing to match his jersey color, and details like the gold stitched A2K on the index finger only add to the impressiveness of this limited-edition model. Look for this Eastbay-exclusive colorway to arrive as we turn the calendar page into the new year.
