San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's publicized issues with the national anthem has reportedly sparked a rise in jersey sales.
According to reports, Colin's jersey is now the most sought-after for the 49ers.
According to the 49ers website, the Kaepernick jersey's sales were ranking in at No. 20 before his protest began. After the firestorm has made Kaepernick the NFL's most talked-about rebel rouser as of late, his jersey sales have skyrocketed to No. 1 on the franchise's website among the team's legends including Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Ronnie Lott jerseys. It's leap from Friday when Twitter user Mike Rosenberg pointed out that it was at No. 3. (Complex)
