More people want to wear the 12th Fan on their back than they want to wear RG3.
The Seattle Seahawks No. 12 jersey, which has the name “Fan” on the back, is now the 10th-best selling jersey, reports ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell. The stats are based on sales on NFLShop.com between April 1, 2013 and Feb. 28, 2014.
For February alone, the No. 12 was the third-most popular jersey behind Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Rovell reports the February sales pushed the 12th Fan jersey ahead of Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The Seahawks retired No. 12 in 1984.
