Colin Kaepernick Bests Peyton Manning as Top-Selling NFL Jersey

Colin Kaepernick Bests Peyton Manning as Top-Selling NFL Jersey

Once again, quarterbacks dominate the list of best-selling NFL jerseys, occupying eight of the ten spots. Colin Kaepernick tops the list, still riding the wave that he built after nearly bringing the NFL title back to San Francisco at the end of last season. Kaepernick edged out Peyton Manning, who is lighting up the league in the 2013 season and has the Denver Broncos looking like the clear favorite for the Super Bowl.

The top five is rounded out by a pair of Sophomore quarterbacks in Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III, with Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson, sandwiched in the middle. Griffin had the top-selling jersey during the previous period and tumbled to fifth based on his injury woes and rough start to the year.

The full list includes the ten top-selling jerseys at the NFL's online store, NFLShop.com, from April 1 to September 30. Two other names stick out on the list. Ryan Tannehill, another 2012 rookie quarterback, checks in at sixth, and is likely buoyed by the early success of the Miami Dolphins. Also, the Dolphins updated their jerseys, which usually results in a boost in sales from the fanbase. Tannehill outsold seasoned stars like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers during the six-month period. J.J. Watt also makes an appearance and is the only defensive player to be found in the top ten. Somewhat surprising, former number one overall pick, Andrew Luck, did not make the top ten.

The following list details the complete top ten based on sales at NFLShop.com from April 1 to September 30, 2013.
