Dick’s Sporting Goods had an idea. The company has been selling NFL jerseys, first those made by Reebok, and now the new NIKE NFL jerseys, for a number of years. Dick’s like Sports Authority, and other major sports merchandise outlets have had to adapt in the recent decade to the booming sensation of buying clothing, including sports apparel, on the Internet.
Adapt, is just what they continue to do, in order to, at the very least, keep sports fans interesting in sports apparel and new sports merchandise, in the hope this keeps customers lining their stores. The store recently introduced the Dick’s Sporting Goods Jersey Report. The NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA have official stores for their sports merchandise, and have generally posted which jerseys sell he most every few months for fans to see which players are popular. In addition, reporters and teams use this information because it is news and can be used for marketing purposes.
The caveat to the Dick’s Jersey Report is that they take into account how much an athlete is trending. Using statistics gathered from social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as actual jersey sales to create a list of the top trending/selling jerseys at Dick’s. The store created the idea of a “heatseeker” or a player’s jersey that they think has the most momentum to move up in the list. Essentially Dick’s has created a power rankings list of NFL jerseys. In this the era of list making, Dick’s has pounced on the idea that fans like to read lists instead of analyzing data. The folks at Dick’s hope that customers will base much of their jersey decisions making based on this Jersey Report and continue to buy jerseys that are most popular.
The top ten jerseys on the Dick’s Jersey Report as of today are: 1. Peyton Manning 2. Andrew Luck 3. Eli Manning 4. Ray Rice 5. Robert Griffin III 6. Victor Cruz 7. Troy Polamalu 8. Joe Flacco 9. Rob Gronkowski and 10. Cam Newton.
