Eagles Top League Merchandising List

Eagles Top League Merchandising List

The Eagles are popular and sell lots of gear, more gear than any other NFL team for the first time ever.  The only to make the top 25 jerseys sold list was Donovan McNabb.  I'm guessing T.O. joined the team a little late into the mix.  That is my only guess as to why he didn't make it.

I thought this was interesting and found it on a random message board:

The PHILADELPHIA EAGLES led NFL teams in merchandise sales for fiscal 2004 (April 1, 2004 through March 31, 2005), the league announced today.  Philadelphia, which ranked fifth last year, reached the top for the first time ever.  Its previous best was No. 3 in 1981.

The Super Bowl XXXIX champion New England Patriots held the No. 2 spot for the second consecutive year followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers.  The Steelers’ No. 3 ranking is their highest since occupying the same spot in 1995.  The Raiders have ranked among the top six in sales since 2000.  The Packers placed in the top five for the ninth consecutive year.

Astros shut out Yankees in Game 7, advance to 1st World Series since 2005


HOUSTON -- Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers combined on a three-hitter, Jose Altuve and Evan Gattis homered and the Houston Astros reached the World Series, blanking the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday night in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series.

Just four years removed from their third straight 100-loss season in 2013, the Astros shut down the Yankees for two straight games after dropping three in a row in the Bronx.

Next up for the Astros: Game 1 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Houston aces Dallas Keuchel and ALCS MVP Justin Verlander will have plenty of rest, too, before the matchup begins at Dodger Stadium.

Houston has never won even a single World Series game. The only previous time the Astros made it this far, they were a National League team when they were swept by the Chicago White Sox in 2005.

Now, manager A.J. Hinch's club has a chance to win that elusive first title, while trying to boost a region still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.

Houston improved to 6-0 at Minute Maid Park in these playoffs and became the fifth team in major league history to win a seven-game postseason series by winning all four of its home games.

Morton bounced back from a loss in Game 3 to allow two hits over five scoreless innings. Starter-turned-postseason reliever McCullers limited the Yankees to just one hit while fanning six over the next four.

Combined, they throttled the Yankees one last time in Houston. Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and their New York teammates totaled just three runs in the four road games.

CC Sabathia entered the game 10-0 with a 1.69 ERA in 13 starts this season after a Yankees loss. But he struggled with command and was gone with one out in the fourth inning.

Houston was up 2-0 in fifth when former Yankees star Brian McCann came through for the second straight game by hitting a two-run double after snapping an 0-for-20 skid with an ground-rule RBI double to give Houston its first run on Friday night.

The Yankees, trying to reach the World Series for the first time since 2009, lost an elimination game for the first time this season after winning their first four in these playoffs. New York struggled on the road this postseason, with this loss dropping the team to 1-6.
