The Seattle Seahawks are still reaping the benefits of their Super Bowl success.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had the NFL’s top-selling jersey of the 2013 season, beating Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who was second, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who landed at fourth. Wilson’s teammates Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman rounded out the top six.
Despite their current domination, the Seahawks did not lead merchandise sales during the regular season. Leo Kane, NFL senior vice president of consumer products, told The Seattle Times that this year’s spike in sales of Seahawks merchandise following the Super Bowl was “one of the best we’ve ever had, if not the best ever.”
This year marks the first time the Seahawks have topped the merchandise charts, The Seattle Times reports. The sales were calculated for the league year, from April 1, 2013, to Feb. 28, 2014.
