Robert Griffin III not only had the top-selling jersey this past season, but the number of sales set a record since the league began tracking such information in 1979.
The Redskins quarterback’s jersey was more popular than Denver quarterback Peyton Manning, Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis, San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and New England quarterback Tom Brady, who rounded out the top five.
Two other rookie quarterbacks – Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and Seattle’s Russell Wilson – also ranked among the top 15 in jerseys sold. Luck was sixth, while Wilson was 14th.
The exact figures, gathered from April 1, 2012 through March 31, 2013, were not released by the league.
Washington jerseys ranked fourth in team sales, behind San Francisco, Baltimore and the New York Giants.
