Tim Duncan
Slam Duncan O's, named for the Spurs' star power forward Tim Duncan (211-F/C-76, college: Wake Forest), officially hit H-E-B stores Monday and demand is expected to be high after early samples of the product released last month were listed for sale on Ebay, according to company executives.
It took two hours to sell out the first 500 boxes of the limited edition honey nut toasted cereal with chocolate puffs, which were accidentally stocked on the shelves of one store Friday, said Cory Basso, H-E-B's vice president of marketing and advertising.
H-E-B is producing up to 400,000 boxes of the cereal, which touts Duncan's 19-year record with the Spurs. The supermarket chain is limiting purchases to six per customer.
Basso said he anticipates the product line will be sold out after three months. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Tim Duncan Foundation.
'Once they're gone, they're gone,' Basso said. 'There won't be a reprint. And, we're doing that to keep it limited edition because we think that makes it more special.'
Duncan, who retired in July, won't be appearing with current Spurs players in future commercials, Basso said, but has filmed another ad to accompany the cereal rollout that will begin airing Monday and is on the hook for at least two more before the end of 2017.
