The rookie led all of baseball, selling the most jerseys of players this season. He passed MLB superstars like Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw on his way to the top.

While Bryant was the top selling jersey, even at 23-years-old he wasn't the youngest on the list as 22-year-old Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper came in at number six.

Fellow Cub, Anthony Rizzo had the eighth highest selling jersey, and NL Central companion Andrew McCutchen closed up the list at number ten.

Amongst the top ten selling jerseys, six of the ten are 26-years-old or younger, showing the true importance and following of young, talented players in the MLB the past few years.
