UNDERDOG Sports, Memorabilia & Games was founded to serve Central Illinois with a place to buy used, but perfectly good equipment and games at affordable prices.

We sell NEW & USED sporting goods.

We RECYCLE sporting goods in order to reduce waste and save you money.

Please consider donating or selling to us. Your gear will help the less fortunate, local kids that need a mentor, educational and after school assistance, or just a place to play. Our proceeds have supported and will continue to support local schools, local sports teams, cancer research, lung research, crisis nurseries, less fortunate mom support and more.


Let's keep kids into sports and out of trouble!
