Every so often we receive a report from the National Football League’s Players Association detailing the latest trends in merchandise sales for the league—at least that which bears the name of a particular player. And once again, this latest release tells us that two members of the Kansas City Chiefs remain firmly entrenched at or near the top of the list.
Both quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce are familiar faces on the NFLPA’s top player sales list and the latest recap of sales from the last six months reveals much of the same. Mahomes himself is either No. 1 or No. 2 since October 2018, trading places from time to time with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who recently retired.
Brady was No. 1 overall on this latest list of sales from March 31 through November 31. Mahomes was No. 2.
Both Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are back on the NFLPA’s top player merch sales again.
As for Kelce, he remains a steady presence somewhere down the list and this time around, he’s landed at No. 18. He was in the top 30 last year, and he first landed on the list three years ago, so it’s clear his star is rising with fans on a national level. That’s what record-setting production will do for a player year after year.
As for other interesting notes, rookie quarterbacks are all the rage since Mac Jones of the New England Patriots and Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears are both in the top six. CeeDee Lamb, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, is the highest non-quarterback on the list at No. 7.
While Kelce is obviously successful and climbing, it’s also notable that George Kittle is the highest-ranked tight end on the list at No. 8.
