Tom Brady returns to the top spot in merchandise sales

AP

The G.O.A.T. has returned to the top of the stack.

After yielding the NFLPA player merchandising title to Cowboys rookies Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott, who finished No. 1 and No. 2 for the year ending February 28, 2017, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has reclaimed the throne for the quarter ending July 31, 2017.

The NFLPA released on Tuesday morning the periodic Top 50 list reflecting comprehensive merchandise sales of all licenses products, from jerseys to T-shirts to bobbleheads to anything and everything.

Here’s the full top 10: (1) Brady; (2) Elliott; (3) Prescott; (4) Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch; (5) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson; (6) Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant; (7) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers; (8) Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.; (9) Steelers receiver Antonio Brown; and (10) Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

It’s amazing that Brady continues to do so well when it comes to jerseys and other merchandise, given that fans have had 16 years and counting to buy things bearing his name and likeness. At this point, it’s safe to say he’ll continue to be at or near the top of the list for the rest of his career, and maybe for a few years after it ends.

  1. All he had to do was sell one of his cookbooks for 12 million dollars to be the top selling merchandiser. LOL!

    Ha! Love you TB12. Goat.
    King of the North.

    Articles like this at this time of the day are the perfect way to ruin a haters day. 🙂

    Yeah…..because #TheHaters claim that “nobody outside of NE can stand Brady”!!!

    Fortunately this is America and most sane people appreciate dedication and greatness

  3. I do a fair amount of traveling around the country. The Patriots aren’t hated near as much as the army of trolls on this site would want to make you believe. Most folks don’t buy the fairy tales of cheating and the load of garbage laid down by Roger.

  4. Elliot’s sales were bound to drop with him always being in trouble with the law.

    People are sure hopping off that Dallas bandwagon aren’t they?

    They are hopping off the bandwagon so much that their Jersey sales are #2 and #3 and only behind the greatest quarterback of all time who happened to complete the greatest comeback of all time in February?

    I don’t think anyone is hopping off the Dallas bandwagon.

  6. Oh dear yet another reality check for our poor trolls…

    The one really surprising part is that for the last few years Brady has been selling far more jerseys outside of NE then inside it… but I do love hearing how “hated” he is…

    Kind of surprised JJ Watt is not in the top 10

    Yeah cause he’s such a likable guy… Mr I’m so awesome himself.

  8. If only Tom and Bill were anywhere but Boston, the most insufferable and narcissistic place on earth.

    Tom Brady would easily be the third most beloved human in recorded history ( i’m putting him behind Jesus and Mohammed), except he has to live in Massachusetts for at least nine months of the year. That is bound to rub off on a guy. As such, Tom Brady is not a role model.

  9. As he turns 40 this week, he will also be on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I still get a kick out the people who doubt him like Tony Dungy who lists Brady as the 6th best quarterback since 1978 because Brady can’t scramble. Seriously, this is what we get now. Does Tony Dungy even understand how great Tom Brady is in the pocket and that it’s smart to stay there rather than scrambling? This stuff doesn’t end.

  10. There are some people in this world who don’t count their money anymore because it would take too long. I think Tom and Giselle just might fall into that category. Good for him. Now if he wins his sixth Super Bowl? Let’s just say there will be no shortage of money in the Brady household for the foreseeable future.

  11. Taking into consideration that a decent amount of us Pats fans won’t give the NFL a single direct dime of our money anymore (I’m one of them), and this makes this even more impressive.

  12. Given how long he’s been playing at such a high level it really is insane that he’s still number 1 in merchandise sales…

    Kinda makes you hope someone on the financial side was pragmatic enough to tell Goodell to stop poking the insanely profitable bear.

    Four Cowboys in the top ten. No other team even had two.

  14. It makes sense Brady would take the top spot in jersey sales since Manning has retired. When they were both playing, it wasn’t even close. #18 jersey dominated.

    Do you even bother to research this stuff?

    That would have been true had you included up until 2012. I believe they were both playing after that. Since then Brady owns Manning. Also in 2012, Tim Tebow outsold Aaron Rogers. Not sure what that says about anything.

    But here’s the thing, Brady has been selling jerseys since 2001. Some of the top sellers have come and gone since then and TB is still #1 as of today for current sales. That’s a little bit of awesome.

  16. Yeah, but at least Brady is still winning championships which helps explain his spot. Can we talk about how impressive Jason Witten being in the top 10 is?! Especially considering there are three other Cowboys ahead of him!

  17. nfl has been pimpin two-yard tommie from the spygate era to today….all the post 9/11 hoopla of getting a team called the patriots into the big game…

    two-yard tommie gives hope to other average qb’s to let them know the nfl will make rules easier for you to play the game, and make you seem like a qb..

    hell, you dont need to call your own plays, plug the nfl can come up with rules named after you cause someone hurt your little leg…..

    tainted, three asterisks, two gifts….

  18. I have to laugh @ the “2 yard Tommy ” comment since he threw for 466 yards in his 5th Super Bowl win, so that means he threw 233 times? Don’t think so.
    It’s amazing posters can’t understand they are watching the GOAT, especially after leading his team who was down 28-3 to victory in his last Super Bowl Win.

    Roger that!

    He was likely a member of the ‘zero rings since spygate’ choir (now defunct). Tom could win the next five superbowls in a row and that crowd wouldn’t be able to swallow their pride and just acknowledge greatness.

  20. Tee hee 🙂 It’s wonderful to see I’m clearly getting under Patriot Hater’s skin 🙂

    I do it because I can cupcake. 🙂 Slapping you up and down this board is just way too much fun and I ain’t going anywhere. 🙂

    You getting mad boy? Yeah. U mad.

    Dance puppet!

    🙂

    Pure cheater.
    Truth.

    ————————————————————

    Rampant stupidity has led fools to continue to post the “cheating” nonsense for several years now.

    In the end that pesky science…is always there to contradict the opinions of those stupid people.

    Still the worst fans in any sport, anywhere in the world.

    ——————————————————–

    Only if you want to believe the baseless opinions of biased haters.

    The results of an actual study were released just 2 months ago. That study of NFL fans was conducted by professor Michael Lewis at Emory University. That study had the Patriots fans and the Cowboys fans as the top 2 best fan bases in the NFL.

    Which means that 30 fan bases are not as good as the Patriots fan bases. Which is why most haters just stick to contradicting science while saying that someone let air out of footballs.

    WRONG !!!

    The results of a study of NFL fan bases was released in June 2017. Only 2 months ago. That study of NFL fans was conducted by professor Michael Lewis at Emory University. That study had the Patriots fans and the Cowboys fans as the top 2 best fan bases in the NFL.

    Which means that 30 fan bases are not as good as the Patriots and Cowboys fan bases. Which is why most haters just stick to contradicting science while saying that someone let air out of footballs.

    I’m sure Manning takes comfort in that fantasy as he watches the GOAT continue his domination on the field
