Judge kept his No. 1 spot in jersey sales despite sitting out more than a third of the season due to an oblique injury. The 2017 American League Rookie of the Year entered Friday’s slate of games with a .272 batting average and 26 home runs for the Yankees, who became AL East champions last week.
Harper set a uniform sales record for any athlete in a 24-hour period after initially signing a 13-year, $ 330 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies in February. Since the Phillies’ opening game, he has ranked second in jersey sales behind Judge.
Yelich, who failed to reach the top 20 last season, jumped to No. 5 on this year’s list. Bellinger went from No. 15 on last year’s list to No. 3.
