Today Dick's Sporting Goods announced an updated and upgraded jersey report on their website. For the second year, football fans can track the sales of their favorite player's jersey. The "stat wall" has been introduced and allows for comparison of players, teams, rivals, with graphical analysis of jersey sales for player, team, division and position. Hockey jersey analysis is scheduled for release in October as the report is expected to be developed against hockey, baseball and basketball.
"The Jersey Report brings a new level of engagement to the game by offering easy access to unique and compelling stats never before available about players' and teams' jersey popularity." Lauren Hobart, SVP & Chief Marketing Officer, DICK'S Sporting Goods
The jersey report provides the rankings of the best selling jersey's nationwide and is available in the categories of overall, offensive, defensive and rookie against seven or 30 day intervals.
