It should come as no surprise that Tom Brady is the dominating name among jersey sales throughout the nation. Still, you’d expect Rodgers to be the most-purchased jersey in the state of Wisconsin. Not only was it not Rodgers, but it wasn’t even a Packers player who generated the most jersey sales in the state.
