Colin Kaepernick’s Jersey Now #1 Seller in The ENTIRE NFL
The immediate outrage after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to silently protest the treatment of minorities in America by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem has shifted quickly within the past two weeks. After all the social media outrage, burning of his jersey, and upset comments from political figures, the tide has changed, especially when it comes to his jersey sales.
Kaepernick initially had the 20th best selling jersey on the 49ers. After the National Anthem protest, the sales skyrocketed to 3rd and then a few hours later, he had the top selling jersey on the team.
Fast forward to the Tuesday after Labor day and Kaepernick now has the top selling jersey in the ENTIRE league.
Colin Kaepernick now has the #1 selling jersey in the entire NFL.
