For the 9th time in his career, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is ranked among the top-20 baseball jerseys sold by dollar volume, and the catcher broke a major record in 2018: there have been more Posey jerseys sold than any other in the history of the San Francisco Giants.
More than Bonds, Bumgarner, or any other. True rare air.
Since 1980, only eight players have achieved top-20 status ten times, an exclusive class the catcher is expected to join before his career is over.
Posey, who hit .284 in an injury-plagued campaign, remains a fan favorite during the recent downturn in on-field performance for the Giants.
Jersey sales are a significant driver of revenue for Majestic Athletic, Major League Baseball, and the thirty ballclubs. So significant, in fact, fans and ballclub executives consider the impact of jersey sales when considering a free agency signing. When slugger Bryce Harper signed a 13-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies last month, worldwide supply of Philadelphia Phillies jerseys came to a halt.
Bryce Harper, Aaron Judge, and Mookie Betts top the list by sales volume, according to a report by WGEH, with young stars Ronald Acuna Jr. and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. rounding out the top five.
