Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes atop the NFL in merchandise sales
Over the last two years, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has moved his way into stardom behind his stellar play on the field.
It has moved him into being one of the most popular players in the NFL regardless of position. According to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk, Mahomes has now pushed his way to the top of the league in merchandise sales.
The NFL Players Association announced on Monday that officially licensed NFL player-identified merchandise featuring Mahomes outsold that of any other player between March 1 and November 30. The NFLPA release also said that the union anticipates Mahomes will remain in first place when the entire year’s figures are in.
The 24-year-old has claimed the top spot over New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, who has held that spot for the last two consecutive years. Mahomes’ steady rise to the top comes as no surprise as he’s one of the most exciting players in the league. What has helped that effort tremendously is that Chiefs have continued to experience plenty of success that has seen them reach back-to-back AFC Championship games.
The fact that they have broken through this time around should only further elevate his status and reputation in the league. If he were to guide the Chiefs to a Super Bowl, it would push his legacy up another notch quite early in his career, while cementing him as arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. All in all, it’s another accolade to add to his resume.
