Josh Allen tops NFL jersey sales, Russell Wilson leads in 7 states: Fanatics


Whether Russell Wilson pays off for the Denver Broncos stays to be seen, however the quarterback has already paid off for Fanatics. The behemoth apparel company on Thursday released its top-selling NFL jerseys list because it typically does on the point of the brand new season’s kickoff.

As an alternative of a typical top-five or top-10 jersey sales, Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin posted a brief video with a top level view of the 50 states getting filled in by jerseys, each marking the bestseller in that state for the reason that start of coaching camp.

And Wilson, whom the Seattle Seahawks traded in March, boasted the top-selling jersey in seven states, including Arizona, which, after all, has its own NFL team within the Arizona Cardinals. He naturally led in Colorado together with Wyoming, Montana, Recent Mexico, Alaska and Idaho. In his old stomping grounds of Washington state, his former goal DK Metcalf now has the highest seller.

“@DangeRussWilson leads with seven states, but @JoshAllenQB has the very best overall jersey sales for the reason that start of coaching camp,” Rubin tweeted. He also noted that Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is in the highest five — presumably the top-five sales list.

The @NFL is back!! So cool to see the highest selling jerseys at @Fanatics broken out by state. @DangeRussWilson leads with 7 states, but @JoshAllenQB has the very best overall jersey sales for the reason that start of coaching camp, and no surprise that the 🐐 @TomBrady sits within the Top 5. pic.twitter.com/wM5Ek9R1ke

Allen’s jersey is the No. 1 seller within the state of Recent York and, somewhat oddly, South Carolina. Allen went to high school in Wyoming, so there isn’t a college connection.

Rookies commonly are high on these lists because it is the primary likelihood for fans to scoop up their merchandise. But just one rookie is a current top seller: Aidan Hutchinson, the Michigan native who was drafted by the Detroit Lions. Just one quarterback went in the primary round this yr: Kenny Pickett to the Steelers.

In Pennsylvania, it’s not Pickett’s jersey however the cross-state Philadelphia Eagles’ receiver A.J. Brown with the claim to the No. 1 seller. He can also be the highest seller in Recent Jersey and Delaware.

Not surprisingly, free agents and traded players, whose jerseys are recent for fans, claimed lots of the top spots including Wilson, Brown and, in Nevada, Davante Adams, who was traded to the Raiders in March after a stellar profession in Green Bay. Baker Mayfield, whom the Cleveland Browns traded in July to the Carolina Panthers, is Fanatics’ No. 1 jersey in two states: North Carolina and Oklahoma, where he starred in college.

Patrick Mahomes cleaned up in the course of the country, because the Kansas City Chiefs star QB’s jersey is the No. 1 seller in 4 states: Missouri, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s jersey is the No. 1 seller in Mississippi and Alabama but not in his home market of Texas. That nod goes to Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons.

Brady’s is the No. 1-selling jersey in Florida, Utah and Arkansas. His former haunt of Recent England is dominated by Patriots quarterback Mac Jones, whose jersey is the No. 1 seller in Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island and Recent Hampshire.

The Los Angeles Rams would be the Super Bowl champs and could have a stronger foothold in L.A. than their SoFi Stadium co-occupants, the Chargers, but that team’s quarterback, Justin Herbert, has the No. 1-selling jersey in California. Herbert also leads in Oregon, where he played in college.

Other notables:

• Louisianans are thrilled former LSU standout Tyrann Mathieu has returned to the state to play for the Recent Orleans Saints. He boasts the state’s top seller.

• Packers fans in Wisconsin are favoring the jersey of running back A.J. Dillon. He’s considered one of three running backs who’re bestsellers, joining Titans back Derrick Henry in Tennessee and Colts star Jonathan Taylor in Indiana.

• Recent San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Trey Lance might not be the No. 1 seller in California, but he’s No. 1 in Hawaii.

• Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin has the No. 1-selling jersey in Maryland and Virginia, while Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow has the highest seller in Ohio and West Virginia.

• Hutchinson, Parsons and Mathieu are the one three defensive players to guide a state. Forty-three of the highest sellers went to either quarterbacks or wide receivers, 44 for those who count Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts, whose jersey is the highest seller in Georgia.

Fanatics is the official apparel company of the NFL. The players get a royalty for every jersey sold.
