Lee Is Gold
I’m back from Super Bowl XLV in North Texas, which was an awesome experience. Such a great time. If you ever have the opportunity (and money) to watch the Eagles (or your favorite team) play in the Super Bowl, I highly recommend it. Of course, I might be feeling much differently today had the Packers lost, but they didn’t so I don’t.
But back to baseball …
I’m leaving Saturday for Clearwater with daily coverage beginning Sunday. In the meantime, I’ve been going through e-mails, some of which are months old. But I came across one from Eric N., which he sent just before Christmas. He wondered how many Cliff Lee jerseys have been sold since he rejoined the Phillies.
It turns out quite a lot.
The top selling item at Citizens Bank Park’s Majestic Clubhouse Store since mid-December? An adult Phillies t-shirt with Lee’s name and number on the back. The third-best selling item? The youth sized Lee t-shirt. No other Phillies t-shirt cracked the top 20.
Here is a look at the top 10 t-shirts sold at the store since mid-December:
- Lee (adult)
- Lee (youth)
- Halladay (adult)
- Chooch (adult)
- Phanatic (ladies)
- Ruiz (adult)
- Oswalt (adult)
- Halladay (youth)
- Utley (adult)
- Victorino (youth)
It seems everybody loves Lee, Halladay and Ruiz, who take up six of the 10 spots.
Lee also ranked third in jerseys/t-shirts sold at MLB.com in 2010, which is impressive considering he had less than a month to work with. Here is a look at that list:
- Authentic font personalized t-shirt
- 2010 NL East champions official clubhouse t-shirt
- Authentic Halladay home jersey
- Replica Lee home jersey
- Replica Halladay home jersey
- Replica personalized home jersey
- Replica personalized alternate jersey
- Youth replica personalized home jersey
- Women’s personalized replica jersey
- Authentic personalized road jersey
It appears Chase Utley has an official Facebook page. I anxiously await Chase to update his Facebook status! What did you have for breakfast today, Chase?!?!?!
Speaking of Facebook, I’m moving Facebook pages. Check out the new one here. I’m in the process of killing my old one, so definitely check this one out if you want updates and more throughout the season. Follow me on Twitter, too.
One more thing: Looking to download some TV shows before I hit Florida. I’ve already done the Wire, Sopranos, Dexter, Mad Men, Californication … anything along those lines you folks recommend?
