Griffin III Jersey Is An All-Time Hit

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 9, 2013 – 10:35 am


By now you have hopefully had a chance to let quarterback Robert Griffin III‘s professional debut sink in. After looking back at what he did throughout his first full year in the Nation’s Capital, its OK to admit that it took you this long to familiarize yourself with all that the Heisman-winning quarterback did in 2012.

After being selected with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Redskins, Griffin III captured the heart of Redskins Nation with incredible performances week after week.

Whether is was his Week 1 cameo in New Orleans where he torched the Saints defense for 320 yards and two touchdowns or his 5-1 record against NFC East foes where he would toss 13 touchdowns to three interceptions, Griffin III created quite the following in not only the DMV but across the country.

And how could he not as the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year led the Burgundy and Gold to their first division crown since 1999.

We can safely confirm that the record-setting gunslinger is one of the best young stars in the game today, but after learning about his newest record, its safe to say that Griffin III may also be the most popular player in the NFL today.

Find out what Griffin III did in his first professional year that no other player has done in league history here: Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell has reported that Griffin III’s replica jersey was not only the highest selling jersey during the April 1, 2012-March 1, 2013 fiscal year, but that his jersey was the highest selling jersey in league history.

Yes, you read that right, the highest selling jersey ever in a single year.

A few months back Rovell reported that No. 10 jerseys was the hottest seller in the league, but with the fiscal year not ending until March 1st, there was still time for other player’s replica jerseys to catch up at the cash register.

Well that never happened as Griffin III continued to dominate the league in the latter half of the 2012 season, leading the Redskins to their first home playoff game in years.

While Griffin III was certainly the heart and soul of the Burgundy and Gold, he wasn’t alone in leading the Redskins to their first double-digit win total in a season since 2005.

Speaking of team efforts, Redskins merchandise as a whole landed in the top-five for team merchandise sales.

Chime in here to tell us when and where you got YOUR Redskins No. 10 Griffin jersey.

Hail to the Redskins!

    Got my jersey online through the Redskins website and promptly returned it. Just not comfortable the way they are designed. Nike messed up a good design.

    Sorry to hear you didn’t like the design! The Nike models are fitted differently. Did you try a different size, perhaps?
