Top Selling NFL Jerseys
 
Exclusive: Favre, Vick At Top Of Jersey List

Perhaps the most interesting jersey sales list of all time has hit our desk at CNBC. It's the NFLShop.com's best selling jersey list from April 1-August 28.

Brett Favre Vikings jerseys now top the list at No. 1, even though the jerseys only became available when Favre signed with the team a couple weeks ago.

And despite being passed over by big retailer Dick's Sporting Goods [DKS 21.60 -0.81 (-3.61%) ], Michael Vick's Philadelphia Eagles jerseys sold well enough to make their debut at No. 4.

Also of interest is the fact that Michael Crabtree jerseys are in the top 20 even though the Texas Tech wide receiver is still holding out.

Here's the entire list from sales on NFLShop.com from the NFL's first four months of the fiscal year.

1. Brett Favre, Vikings
2. Jay Cutler, Bears
3. Troy Polamalu, Steelers
4. Michael Vick, Eagles
5. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
6. Tony Romo, Cowboys
7. Mark Sanchez, Jets
8. Tom Brady, Patriots
9. Adrian Peterson, Vikings
10. Eli Manning, Giants
11. Terrell Owens, Bills
12. Peyton Manning, Colts
13. Hines Ward, Steelers
14. LaDainian Tomlinson, Chargers
15. Jason Witten, Cowboys
16. Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals
17. Joe Flacco, Ravens
18. Matt Ryan, Falcons
19. Aaron Rodgers, Packers
20. Michael Crabtree, 49ers

Update: Crabtree's holdout is hurting his jersey sales. He was No. 8 earlier this month.

Couple things I find interesting. First is Troy is the ONLY defensive player on the top 20 list.

I figured McFadden Jerseys in Oakland would still be selling well but I guess they suck so bad even Raider nation is pinching its pennies this season.

Vick...There is a reason I find Philly fans to be the bottom of the barrell...and they continue to prove me correct.

Larry Fitz...PITT GRAD...just tossing that in for fun.

Dang.

Vick signed a month ago(?) and isn't picked up by Dicks yet still sells that many jerseys.

I guess it's a statement to wear his name on your back, which makes sense.

Fitz graduated from Pitt? I thought he got out of that $hithole as soon as he possibly could

Here's the way I see it...........

You take out the "player on a new team" thing ( as you should to be an honest list) and there are 3 Steelers in the top ten and 2 at the top 'O the list.

1. Troy Polamalu, Steelers
2. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
3. Tony Romo, Cowboys
4. Tom Brady, Patriots
5. Adrian Peterson, Vikings
6. Eli Manning, Giants
7. Peyton Manning, Colts
8. Hines Ward, Steelers


And lets be honest. The whole staff at ESPN is keeping Marsha in the top ten!

Doesn't Favre count? He plays a lot of defense on interception runbacks.

Who the hell buys the jersey of a bum who is so moody about not getting top 10 money, he is willing to sit out the entire year and reenter the draft?! Not to mention how stupid it is considering the guy is making it clear he wants nothing to do with the 49ers... And yet! People by the bums jersey. :doh:

Go figure, I can sorta understand Vick or Favre more than I can Crabby.
