Default Steelers moved to #1 in NFL sales

Quote:
it seems like Steelers paraphernalia is everywhere you look -- even outside of western Pennsylvania -- that's because it is.

For the first time since 1980, NFL-licensed Steelers merchandise is the top seller among the 32 NFL teams. Second on the list is the Philadelphia Eagles, marking just the third time that teams from the same state ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in sales.

In 1990 and 1991, the Los Angeles Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers were first and second, respectively. The league began tracking merchandise sales in 1979.

The popularity of Steelers players such as retired tailback Jerome Bettis, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward and Pro Bowl strong safety Troy Polamalu enhanced the team's image in Pittsburgh and beyond during their Super Bowl title run.


Last year, the Eagles held the top spot, but the Steelers were able to knock their in-state foes off their perch. It is just the second time the Steelers ranked No. 1.

In 1980, the franchise was coming off its fourth Super Bowl in six years.

After the Steelers and Eagles, the Oakland Raiders ranked third on this year's list, followed by the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots, the Green Bay Packers, the Indianapolis Colts, the Chicago Bears, the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos.

Sales were tracked from April 1, 2005 until March 31, 2006

Not unexpected IMO. A high population area team wins the Super Bowl and sales go up. Actually would have been much more surprised if they hadn't.

I was thinking the same thing. Whoever wins the Super Bowl their stuff sells a lot more and then you have the fair weather fans who jump on the bandwagon too. It would have been sad if they weren't #1 in sales.

Amazing how many Steeler bumper stickers and flags you see nowadays. Coincidence? I think not. The fair-weather fan is alive and well.
