Green and gold equaled plenty of green for our orange-logoed WNBA in its wubble year of 2020.
This season proved that established veteran names still maintain plenty of staying power as Sue Bird’s No. 10 Seattle Storm jersey proved to be the top seller for the year.
Second was Diana Taurasi’s Phoenix Mercury wear and coming in at third was Candace Parker’s Los Angeles Sparks fit.
Despite only playing a few games in the wubble, Sabrina-mania is real. Sabrina Ionescu’s New York Liberty No. 20 came in at fourth for individual player jerseys in only her first season in the W. Also at fifth was Maya Moore’s Minnesota Lynx jersey despite this being her second season where she spent time out of the league working to free Jonathan Irons (whom she eventually married) from prison.
A’ja Wilson of the Las Vegas Aces is climbing up the jersey rankings. She’s at sixth overall followed by the Storm’s Breanna Stewart at seven. Elena Delle Donne was granted a medical exemption from playing at the Florida wubble with the Washington Mystics agreeing to pay her salary – her jersey was eighth.
The “Vander” half of VanderQuigs also was on the list as Courtney Vandersloot’s Chicago Sky jersey was at ninth and Satou Sabally’s Dallas Wings jersey was at tenth – also in her first season.
The Storm were the most popular team in terms of merchandise followed by the Liberty, Sparks, Aces and Lynx.
It was also announced that the WNBA’s orange hoodie, a must-have for any W aficionado, became the best-selling WNBA item in history and the most popular product among the Fanatics network of sites.
The lists are based on WNBAStore.com sales that began being compiled at the outset of the 2020 season.
