Derek Jeter's final home game will be on Thursday, September 25, 2014 and he said he is done and will retire next season but still fans are buying his No. 2 jersey and you can expect that it will keep on selling in the future.
ESPN reports, Derek Jeter's No. 2 Yankees jersey is the top-selling baseball jersey of all time according to Majestic Athletic.
Jim Pisani president of Majestic Athletic said, "Derek just resonates with all demographics, all across the country. He is really the only jersey that you consistently see at opposing ballparks, which is why he has been at the top for the last decade."
Pisani also said that the reason behind it is only because of Jeter playing 20 seasons with the Yankees and giving the teams wins, it is also because of the change in marketing during his time. After Derek plays for the league, sporting goods stores actually expanded and with the expansion quality also improves. The most important factor is the internet, it change how marketing is done. Also, Yankees won 4 out of 5 World Series titles from 1996 to 2000.
Jeter will play his last game at Yankees Stadium on Thursday and his final game ever Sunday at Fenway Park.
