Even though the NCAA has stopped selling players’ jerseys, the actual schools continue to reap the financial benefits. The most notable of these schools is the University of Oregon. They’re capitalizing off of their QB Marcus Mariota by selling 25 different versions of it, ranging from around $85 to as high as $135.
Not to worry, however. Oregon isn’t the only school that’s financially feasting from players’ jersey sales. Per the Big Lead:
But it gets better, as ESPN notes, because amateurism is the best! Michigan is offering 17 versions of No. 98, QB Devin Gardner; Notre Dame is selling 15 different No. 5 jerseys (returning QB Everett Golson) and Alabama’s online store features 10 different versions of No. 4 (star RB T.J. Yeldon).
Capitalism at its finest.
