The NFL Players Association recently released the Top 50 Player Sales List, which is a list of all officially licensed, NFL player-branded merchandise sold from online and traditional retail outlets as reported by over 70 NFLPA licensees. Licensed product categories include men’s, women’s and youth game jerseys and T-shirts, player murals, figurines, matted and framed photos, bobbleheads, drinkware, jewelry, and electronic device accessories, among others.
Not only did the Giants have two players land in the top 50, but they cracked the top 10. Running back Saquon Barkley was No. 6 in the league, and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took the last spot in the top 10. Barkley, the second overall pick in the draft, was the top rookie on the list and the second running back, while Beckham was the second wide receiver. This was according to second quarter rankings, which spanned from March 1 to Aug. 31 of this year.
Barkley led all players in collegiate co-branded Fathead wall decal sales, more than doubling the next player on the list. Beckham was in the top three of sales for pet accessories and apparel. Beckham also led sales of cake toppers from DecoPac.
