    Colin Kaepernick Passes RGIII As Top-Selling NFL Jersey

    Colin Kaepernick passes RGIII as top-selling NFL jersey

    Colin Kaepernick might publicly endorse non-San Francisco ***** merchandise, but his own jersey is the NFL's hottest seller of the moment.

    Kaepernick's No. 7 jersey was the top mover on NFLShop.com from April 1 through June 30, an NFL spokeswoman told CNBC.com. Kaepernick is one of seven quarterbacks in the top 10 in sales for 2013. Tim Tebow fans still trying to find a charity to take their No. 15 New York Jets jersey must be taking a wait-and-see approach with his New England Patriots career. He's not on the list.

    The NFL's new-school youth movement at quarterback dominated the top of the list. Kaepernick's rise ends a year of jersey sales dominance for Robert Griffin III, whose No. 10 Washington Redskins jersey was the top seller from March 31, 2012 to April 1, 2013. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson placed second and RGIII third.

    The sales of Kaepernick jerseys have been a steady climb since the 25-year-old quarterback Wally Pipped Alex Smith out of a job in San Francisco and took the ***** all the way to Super Bowl XLVII.

    Joe Flacco, the quarterback who beat Kaepernick's ***** in the Super Bowl and is now the NFL's highest-paid player, is buried at No. 25 on the list. In its story, CNBC describes Flacco as "the talented but dull QB."

    Super Bowl ring versus top jersey seller.... yeah, I'm still going to give bragging rights to Flacco on this one.

    Obviously, Kaepernick is benefiting from all those new fans in South Florida.

    That is a good point. Do they combine his whiners jersey sales with his Dolphins jersey sales?

    From the information I read, I was able to discern one fact:

    There are a LOT of bandwagon fans buying jerseys. Otherwise, why would the top sellers be Wilson, Krapernick, and RGIII?

    A severe shortage of toilet paper in the Seattle, SF, and DC metropolitan areas ?

    I am really torn on Kap. I watched him for years as a member of the Nevada Wolf Pack. Really enjoyed watching him play. Hated when the ***** drafted him. He is a good QB and is going to get better.

    But... He is a member of the evil empire. I would never own one of his jerseys.
