MT: 49ers Top NFL Team Sales

Posted by Taylor Price on April 9, 2013 – 9:42 AM

The San Francisco 49ers sold the most team gear in the National Football League last season.

That’s according to a report from NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, who also shared the top 15 jersey sales from the 2012 season. According to Rosenthal, the NFL’s tracking of team sales showed the 49ers last finished atop the NFL’s rankings in 1979 and also finished No. 2 back in 1994 and 1995.

Colin Kaepernick and Patrick Willis made the top-selling jersey list at the No. 4 and No. 10 spots, respectively.

ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell also weighed in on the team’s booming merchandise sales.

“49ers sell more gear than any other NFL team this year,” Rovell wrote on Twitter. “Congrats @JedYork.”

The 49ers have made an effort to make team merchandise more accessible to fans with the creation of the 49ers Team Store in Palo Alto, Calif., plus an official Facebook account for the store that keeps fans up to date with the latest arrivals.

The team is also offering jerseys of recently acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com wrote about the draft prospects of Joe Montana’s son.

Chris Wesseling of NFL.com addressed the 49ers draft needs and pegged Florida safety Matt Elam as a first-round target.

49ers.com’s pre-draft series continued with a look at Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.



What. A. Game.

    I’ve been thinking about something for awhile and wanted to hear thoughts from others on the subject. When Tebow gets cut, what if we brought him in to be Delanie’s potential replacement? He obviously would have to be commited to a position change, but there’s no denying he’s a great athlete. I would think his no nonsense approach to staying fit and being a blue collar team player would fit Harbaugh’s culture and I would think there would be some creative ways to use him as a premier H Back. Very much like Delanie or Chris Cooley.You have to think that he’s capable of 40 catches with a handful of touchdowns. And he’d be very cheap. Just curious to some thoughts on the subject.

    I AM IN NO WAY ENDORSING HIM AS A QB. To me, that’s not even an option. I wonder if the circus goes away if he’s not playing QB. The kid is a phenomenal athlete and outstanding teammate. Seems like Harbaugh’s kind of guy.

    I have a varied opinion on this whole team sales thing.its something my buddies and I were talking about during tailgate patrys during last year, with the recent success the 49ers have had there was going to be alot of band-wagon jumping going on and this kinda goes with that notion. at the start of the 2011 season there were less that 750,000 people that liked the 49ers on facebook,at the start of the 2012 season there was more than1.2 million likes,,,you see where im going with this, the sales thing is just another example of fair-weather fans getting off and on the fan-wagon, yeah im glad those phonies are spending the cash so the team has money,but I “HATE” band-wagon jumping fans,your either with the team,,,100%,,,,or your not,,they give us ” ‘faithful ” a bad name,,,,IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST

    we r all set we don’t need tebow….what is his worth? good talent and can do a lot of things on offense….ok now other side of coin….way to much media and circus comes with him….but really do we need tim tebow? NO! please lets move on and why r we even talking tebow? what r u going to give jets? I mean really if he has all this so called talent why aren’t other teams who need talented players trying to get him? say no to tebNO

    the jets would probably cut him so he would be cheap thats why the speculation

  12. By ace on Apr 9, 2013 | Reply

    id be suprised if tebow doesnt switch positions for some team cuz who wants him to qb ?

  13. By hmrhead1 on Apr 9, 2013 | Reply

    That’s my thought as well Ace. To mkfram’s point, if the circus follows him, I say no as well. But if he’s not playing qb, I think there’s a chance that goes away. If Delanie Walker can be a key offensive contributor as our H-Back, what could someone with superior football talent provide. And on top of it, he’s a top notch teammate.

    I HATE Tebowmania and just laugh at anyone who says he can play QB. But there is no doubt he’s a superb athlete and can make plays with the ball in his hands.

    One more benefit is he also could serve as an emergency 3rd QB if we lost two in one game. The pistol offense is probably the one offense where he could actually make some plays in emergency situations. Saves a little cap room and a roster spot because Tolzien stays on the Practice Squad.

    I’m not a Tebow fan, but it seemed like a good fit when I thought about it. Just my 2 cents.

    “woah back the truck up ….we now have a real QB so those sales will be high and willis is a probowler and they did change jerseys last year now everyone is getting the new ones”

    Robert Griffin III’s jersey sold better than anyone else in the NFL last year. Colin Kaepernick wasn’t even close.

    “Real QB”… you don’t know a thing about the position. However, Griffin isn’t a real QB either. His red zone [throwing] offense was worse than Blaine Gabbert’s (1.8 yards per [throw] play), although the read option made the Redskins’ red zone rushing threat significant. For reference, Kaepernick was good for approximately 2.5 yards per [throw] play in the red zone, Peyton Manning was good for about 4 per play, and Alex Smith was good for 4.1 (ranked behind Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Josh Freeman, and Drew Brees). That includes sacks.

    But don’t worry, 11yearsofbaseless, I’m not picking on you alone. Many here have no idea on how to evaluate a quarterback while factoring for scheme. However, you should change your user name to 11yearsofroshambo. That’s what lies ahead if Kaepernick can’t get up to NFL speeds when contained in the pocket.
