Some Surprising Things About the Top Baseball Jerseys List

There was a whole to-do in the news today about which teams' had the most popular player jerseys. There were some unsurprising results -- Derek Jeter was No. 1, of course -- and some surprising findings. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York ran the full list of players, and Darren Rovell also had a list of top teams. First up is Rubin's list:
1. Derek Jeter, New York Yankees
2. Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins
3. Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies
4. Chase Utley, Philadelphia Phillies
5. Cliff Lee, Philadelphia Phillies
6. Albert Pujols, St. Louis Cardinals
7. Josh Hamilton, Texas Rangers
8. Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox
9. Alex Rodriguez, New York Yankees
10. Tim Lincecum, San Francisco Giants
11. Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees
12. Jason Heyward, Atlanta Braves
13. Stephen Strasburg, Washington Nationals
14. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers
15. Justin Morneau, Minnesota Twins
16. Jacoby Ellsbury, Boston Red Sox
17. Ian Kinsler, Texas Rangers
18. Ryan Howard, Philadelphia Phillies
19. Buster Posey, San Francisco Giants
20. Evan Longoria, Tampa Bay Rays
The best-selling teams for baseball-related attire are:

New York Yankees
Boston Red Sox
Los Angeles Dodgers
Philadelphia Phillies
Chicago Cubs
St. Louis Cardinals
Chicago White Sox
Atlanta Braves
Minnesota Twins
Detroit Tigers

A few thoughts:

There are no Mets on either list. That's yet another blow to the team. Tough times, Squawker Jon.I told you not to buy that Oliver Perez jersey!

For all the grief and bad press that A-Rod gets, he's still No. 9. It just goes to show that, as I always say, he is more popular than the media gives him credit for.

How does Ellsbury rank in the top 20, when he didn't play for most of the year?

I'm surprised the San Francisco Giants didn't make the top 10. And what about the Cubs being No. 5. Exactly whose jersey would you buy? This is a team who had to put Jeter on a billboard to sell tickets!


What do you think? Tell us about it!
