On this date in 1984, the Seahawks retired jersey number 12. Now it is worn by our fans, the 12s.
Three Seahawks jerseys were among the Top 25 best-selling jerseys through the first two weeks of the regular season according to data released by NFLShop.com.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson comes in at No. 9 on the list, running back Marshawn Lynch at No. 15, and the Seahawks' 12 FAN jersey at No. 19.
Wilson's rank makes him the fourth-highest ranked quarterback behind the New England Patriots' Tom Brady (No. 1), Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers (No. 2), and Tennessee Titans' Marcus Mariota (No. 3). Lynch's rank makes him the second-highest ranked running back behind the San Francisco 49ers' Jarryd Hayne, with more than 70 percent of his jersey sales coming from Australia, where Hayne played professional rugby.
Other Seahawks players who hold hot-selling jerseys but missed the Top 25 include Jimmy Graham, whose jersey sales rank third among NFL tight ends, and cornerback Richard Sherman, whose jersey sales rank fifth among all defensive players.
With three jerseys in the Top 25, the Seahawks (Wilson, Lynch, FAN) are tied with the Patriots (Brady, Rob Gronkowski & Julian Edelman) and 49ers (Hayne, Colin Kaepernick & NaVorro Bowman) for the club with the most jerseys represented.
The New Look of Intimidation features an aggressive combination of Seahawks tradition and Nike innovation. The Seahawks now have three uniforms with nine different possible combinations.
