He’s been in the MLB for just a few months now and only one player’s jersey has sold more than Kris Bryant.
MLB.com released the top selling MLB jerseys counting sales on MLB.com from Opening Day to the All-Star Break. Bryant makes his debut on the list at #2 only behind World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner who is also making his debut on the list.

The rookie phenom got the call up in April and is hitting .258 with 12 home runs and 58 RBI’s with the Cubs this season. His #17 jersey has become a hot seller at retail stores and around Wrigley as the future of the Cubs looks to lead them to the playoffs.
But Bryant wasn’t the only Cubs player in the top 10. First baseman Anthony Rizzo made the list at #10, as he’s also having a very productive year on the North Side.
With Rizzo and Byrant being staples in the Cubs lineup for years, be prepared to see Wrigley Field filled with #17 & #44 jerseys.
