There is a stand called "Main Street News" in the city on your way to the park, go straight, then right and its a little booth right in front of the PRO-AM arena. Just visit him every time he's open and eventually a Main Street News t-shirt will show up in your closet in your MyCourt. You need to wear this shirt and visit the Newsstand when its open, if you don't have the shirt on you can't buy from the stand. The guy in the stand will talk to you and you'll have the option to press cn_Y which lets you in the shop. The cheapest skill boost in there is 200VC.
x JohnnyRogue xDo you know how many times you have to go to the Newsstand before the shirt appears in your closet or he gives you the option to purchase the shirt? I've been a handful times and have not received the shirt or the option to buy it, he just closes the store after I push A on the stand

Xx ItsDaFurg xXJust watched a vid on this cheevo- apparently you have to make sure you pick the smaller endorsement when offered the 150 VC one or the 10 VC news one. Theres another opportunity to pick this endorsement, but if both times you pick the expensive one theres no way of getting this with your current save. Kind of annoying, nor surprised though its 2K

x JohnnyRogue xOh what a bummer, I think I choose the 150 VC option, but I don't think I ran into the second opportunity yet. Can you post the link to the video that you watched this? I can't seem to find it

RoboTicS83I've only gotten 1 opportunity from Coach, he offered me an Adidas endorsement for wearing their shoes in season games; 35 VC per game for wearing them. I accepted. After few games played (around 28th of November 2017 in 1st season) he sent me message on the phone that he left me T-shirt to wear in the Neighbourhood (black colour with some text on it). I went to MyCOURT and dressed it up, after that I went to the "Main Street News" stand and talked to the man Erik (when he was opened). I bought boost pack from him (200 / 2000 VC). And there goes the Cheevo!

G3n CarthThanks for the guide. I kept trying to buy the boosts without realizing I needed the shirt on. As soon as I got the shirt, it worked like a charm!
