It turns out winning the Super Bowl is pretty good for business.
The NFLPA on Friday released its top 50 player sales list from March 1-Feb. 28 and the Eagles were the most represented team on the list, with five players ranking in the top 50.
3. Carson Wentz
17. Zach Ertz
22. Nick Foles
43. Alshon Jeffery
45. Jay Ajayi
This list is a combined total of all officially licensed merchandise, not just jerseys. It shouldn’t be surprising that Wentz is near the top of this list, behind just Tom Brady (1) and Dak Prescott (2). Even though he was injured late in the year, he was having an MVP season before going down and is obviously the Eagles’ quarterback of the future.
But Foles making the list at 22? That’s pretty impressive. Remember, for most of the 2017 season, Foles was just a backup on a two-year deal. He had to make a heckuva comeback once he took over for an injured Wentz and led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship. Foles returned to the top 50 list after two years off of it.
Weirdly, Foles sold more drinkware product from Wincraft than any other player — 10 times more than any other player!
And there are likely a lot of Eagles fans walking around the city with players on their legs. Five of the top 10 sellers of Strideline socks were Eagles: Foles, Wentz, Chris Long, Ajayi and Jeffery.
Only Brady and Odell Beckham Jr. sold more in Fathead decals than Wentz.
Here’s the top 10:
4. Ezekiel Elliott
5. Antonio Brown
6. Aaron Rodgers
7. Beckham Jr.
8. Russell Wilson
9. Rob Gronkowski
10. Derek Carr
