Today, I’m going to make it easy for you and link to several stories discussing Peyton Manning jersey sales. Now that he’s a Bronco, I would expect Manning to jump into the top 10 of NFL jersey sales this year. Possibly taking over the #1 spot from Aaron Rogers.
First, the USA Today’s “Game On” blog (a blog about the business of sports) reports on the jerseys already being “on sale” at NFLshop.com (those of us in the business know it should read “for sale” – “on sale” means it’s marked down). The article then goes on to say Tebow jerseys were the league’s #1 selling jersey last year – when they were actually #2 behind Aaron Rogers. The article had other errors, but I’ll move on.
