At Christmas in 2008, chances are you or someone you know got a Brett Favre Jets jersey.
Who knew that the quarterback still had another stop (and more jerseys to sell) in Minnesota before he retired for good?
So if you've been wearing that outdated Jets No. 4 jersey for a while, it was probably time for someone in your family to put a new jersey under the tree this year. Maybe you got a Colin Kaepernick jersey, because the 49ers quarterback is the new king of NFL jersey sales in 2013.
Here's how the top 10 most popular jerseys have changed over the last five years. There are some pretty interesting names on the 2008 list (Marion Barber?), and only three players made both lists, and one has changed teams over the last five years. Also interesting that we've gone from four Cowboys in the 2008 top 10 to none this year. Here is the comparison:
- American Football
- Sports & Recreation
- Colin Kaepernick
