Farve #4 Everybody's got one

As the NFL season approaches it is always interesting to see what jerseys are selling. Here is the list of the top sellers. A couple of things jump out, Mike Vick at 4. I am not sure what to think. It's kinda awesome, kinda people from Philadelphia are insane. Michael Crabtree, a rookie, who is holding out and has not even signed with the 49ers sneaks in at 20. People in San Fransisco are clearly desperate. 3 Steelers make the list, no surprise. By now, there must be more Brett Farve Jerseys sold that any other athlete ever. It's insane, I believe that at this point Wisconsin and Minnesota are entirely comprised of white people wearing Farve XL and larger jerseys.
I was thinking it would be interesting to find out the list of most unsold jerseys for players. I came up with my own hypothetical list for all of sports.

1. Alfonso Soriano, it seemed like a great idea when he signed for $136 million. It has got to be pretty tough to move the jersey of a guy can't hit and plays the outfield like a 5th grader.

2. Yao Ming, there have got to be a lot of lonely Yao jerseys hangin' out due to his tradition of having a devastating foot injury every year. Plus, who is really inspired by a 7'7 guy who shoots a fallaway hook and grows odd facial hair.

3. Jamar Smith, there were a lot #31 jerseys sitting around Gameday Sports last year. It is a great jersey to sport if you are kickin' it at Fubar though.

4. Plaxico Burress, for obvious reasons. I wonder if he and Eli still talk.

5. Vince Young, everybody in Tennessee is buying Kerry Collins jerseys now. Okay, probably not, but you have to be on the field and playing well to sell jerseys.


  1. I think its safe to say that our whole 06-07 team was in the most unsold list. People had finally realized "The Freak" was not freaky in a good way and our best player couldn't read and noone liked him. As a result trent meachem was the most sold jersey on that team. Thats got to be a bad sign.

  2. So you're telling me that my personalized #42 Illini jersey with "The Freak" written on the back isn't cool?
