There are several ways to express your NFL fandom; whether you paint your face, don an extravagant custom-made outfit, or wear a jersey, there’s no limit on supporting your favorite team. While face paint and wild costumes certainly convey where a fan’s loyalties lie, jerseys can tell a little bit more about a fan’s allegiance. Everyone has a favorite player — current or former — and owning your favorite player’s jersey can have a deep significance.
Raider Nation is as loyal and proud as any fanbase, and no matter where you are in the world seeing someone wearing a Raiders jersey is always a possibility.
Recently, the NFLPA released the league’s top-50 jersey sales between March 1 and May 31, and two members of the Silver and Black cracked the list.
Clocking in at No. 43 on the list, Derek Carr remains a popular jersey among Raiders fans, and I expect his jersey sales to rise this season, as he kicks off his second season in Gruden’s offense. He currently ranks ahead the likes of Joey Bosa, Jared Goff, James Conner, and Philip Rivers.
A bit higher on the list, Antonio Brown ranks No. 8 overall among jersey sales — Raider Nation couldn’t wait to get their hands on his new digs. There’s no denying that the Raiders’ acquisition of AB was among the biggest moves in the league this offseason, and as arguably the best wide receiver in football, it only makes sense that everyone wants to cop his new jersey.
If you’re interested in purchasing a jersey – whether it’s Carr’s, Brown’s, or someone else’s - or any other Raiders gear, head over to raiderimage.com where you can get all the newest paraphernalia. I’m sure there will be plenty of people flashing their AB jerseys at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum any time he scores this season.
