3 NFL Players In New York Have Top 10 Best Selling Jerseys
Football is back baby! Fans are living the high life now that their favorite sport is back in action. Being in Buffalo, I always see Buffalo Bills jerseys, especially Josh Allen's jersey. So, I started wondering which players have the best-selling jerseys.
How Did Selling NFL Players' Jerseys Become A Thing?
According to Sports Illustrated, athletic store owner Norm Charney, who lived in Dallas, was the Godfather of selling jerseys. In 1981, he purchased Athletic Supply, which provided jerseys to the Dallas Cowboys. He began selling jerseys without the permission of the NFL. He got a visit from two NFL representatives who told him he couldn't sell the jerseys. Rather than take no for an answer, he set out to get official permission.
Charney went to New York, met with the league and was granted a license to sell authentic merchandise. By 1985, he was selling authentic NFL game jerseys—'tens of thousands of them,' he says—through his NFL Pro Shop catalog.
