DICK’S Sporting Goods is the largest sports retailer in the country and player jerseys are one of their most popular items. So popular in fact that five years ago DICK’S launched the Jersey Report which lists the most popular jerseys based on online and in-store sales data. You can interact with the report selecting Top 10, Offense, Defense, Rookies, and Teams and view the most popular jerseys this week, this month or for the entire season.
DICK’s carries not only your favorite player’s home and away jerseys, but also alternate jerseys such as the crazy Color Rush jerseys, throwback jerseys for some teams, and my personal favorites, the Salute to Service jerseys. For some of the most popular players, you might even find their college jerseys available!
Looking through the report on the best-selling jerseys for this season, you’ll see the usual suspects such as Cam Newton, Tom Brady, and Odell Beckham Jr., but what is surprising is that the best-selling jersey for the entire season is Philadelphia’s rookie quarterback phenom Carson Wentz. You can track your favorite players and see how they are trending and see how your favorite team stacks up. The New England Patriots are not surprisingly holding the top spot, but the Philadelphia Eagles have moved up 22 spots since last season to take the eighth spot on the list. And my beloved Green Bay Packers are barely holding on to the tenth spot after their complete implosion this season.
