Jersey Score: Chicago Cubs, Bryant Rule Again With Top-Selling MLB Jerseys

By Barry Janoff

April 21, 2017: According to the 25th annual Sports Fan Loyalty Index from research and consulting firm Brand Keys, NY, the Chicago Cubs have the most loyal fans in MLB.

Not only that, but Robert Passikoff, founder and president of Brand Keys, the Cubs win in the 2016 World Series was a key factor in MLB dethroning the NFL after a decade as No. 1 in fan loyalty.

"People like Cubs fans can now say, 'All that time I put into supporting my team, and they win the World Series, isn’t that the greatest thing ever!'" said Passikoff.

The excitement surrounding the Cubs is also being translated in merchandise and financial terms.

Four of the top five best-selling MLB jerseys between the World Series and MLB’s 2017 Opening Day belong to players on the Cubs, according to MLB and the MLB Players Assn., based on sales of Majestic jerseys at MLBShop.com.

The Cubs also have the best-selling cap and the most popular search on MLBShop.com: 2017 Gold Jerseys & Gear.

The jersey list is topped by Cubs third baseman and reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant, followed by Cubs 1st baseman Anthony Rizzo, with Cubs infielder Javier Báez at No. 4 and Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber at No. 5,

The one non-Cub: pitcher Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers at No. 3.
 
Not by coincidence, all four of the Cubs appear in a new MLB spot for the Bryzzo Souvenir Company, named for its "owners," Bryant and Rizzo.

Bryant has had the most popular MLB jersey since the start of the 2015 season, according to MLB.

The Top Ten also includes Noah Syndergaard (New York Mets), Corey Seager (Dodgers), Buster Posey (San Francisco Giants), Gary Sanchez (New York Yankees) and AL MVP Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels).

MLB said that Trout’s jersey has appeared on every top-selling list since his MLB debut in 2012.

There are several first-timers on the new list, including Báez, Schwarber, Seager, Sanchez, Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts (No. 14) and Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor (No. 16).

In addition, the average age of players on this list is 26 1/2 — more than 1.5 years younger than any previous list’s mean age, per MLB.

MLB did not release specific sales figures.
