More Cheering For Jameis Jersey Sales

June 19th, 2015

Spreadsheet types at One Buc Palace are all amped up by the numbers of Jameis Winston jerseys being gobbled up.

At a meeting of business leaders in Lakewood Ranch this week, Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford was all fired up with enthusiasm. And it was reported from the meeting, by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, that Jameis’ No. 3 jersey has broken sales records.

Joe sought clarification and learned that sales of Jameis jerseys have surpassed those of any other Bucs rookie in a comparable timetable. Detailed records date 20-something years.

Joe has to imagine Cadillac Williams (2005) sold plenty in the weeks after he was drafted. There was a ton of hype surrounding that pick, and the Bucs were the shiniest jewel of the Tampa Bay area back then.

In May, Jameis jersey sales ranked No. 2 in the NFL. It’ll be interesting to see if that national popularity holds. Joe doubts it, considering Jameis is a villain outside of Florida.

    Can I assume that these numbers don’t include a jersey for you from Erik with Clean Athletics But Dirty Promises?

  2. Ray Rice Says:

    I remember when #55 was interviewed in 05′ and he refused to call Carnell “Cadillac.” He was acting just like weak a$$ EDS. The difference was that #55 was already a hall of famer by then. Then during the season everything changed and he was caught Mic’d up saying, “come on Lac, punch it in Lac, give it to Lac.” So, FUK a jersey sale. THE MESSIAH will have an even greater impact his rookie year than Cadillac. Then all will rejoice and drink the wine. Even you weak a$$ EDS.

  3. Joe Says:

    Additionally, No. 55 never started for a 2-14 team.

  4. Ray Rice Says:


    Those were the good ol days my friend. THE MESSIAH will bring it back.

    (shakes head at comments)

    Nothing against Jameis, but this surprises me because the jerseys are so blasted ugly. I doubt they’ll miss my contribution, but I’ll not spend it on those ugly things.

  6. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I’ve lived in PA for almost 20 years now, and Winston’s jersey is the first Bucs jersey I’ve ever seen hanging up on the wall in the sports stores.

  7. Supersam Says:

    I think it’s more about how bad this team has been for 20 years, rather than it being just Jameis. He was still number 2 to Mariota.

  8. Lord Cornelius Says:

    But but but there we going to be so much backlash from the pick and people who would stop supporing the team right?

  9. HarlemBuc Says:

    Is anyone else getting the sense that this offense has soooooo many weapons?
    I’m so freakin hype to see this offense on the field under Koetter

  10. Buccfan37 Says:

    87 hasn’t got that jersey yet? Probably on back order from never gonna happen. Last I read here Eric said he tried to contact you. Interweb comment bets, bad idea, you can never collect on them.

    The red jersey really isn’t all that bad now that I’m getting used to it

    My Jameis jersey arrived in the mail yesterday. Put it on, looked in the mirror and realized the number 3 backwards in the mirror looks like an “E.” I mean EXACTLY like an “E.”

    Anyway, I’m actually kind of digging the red jerseys. The white are freaking hideous which is why I couldn’t go w a white Jameis even though I already had a red Lavonte. #FirstWorldProblems

    Even the glennon mob members won’t buy a Glennon jersey.

    I guess I’m getting used to the jerseys, BUT THE NUMBERS ARE JUST SOO DAMN AWFUL!!! Not huge on the pewter shoulders either. I didn’t like the Seahawks new ones at first, but now I really like em. Maybe if we win a Super Bowl I’ll fall in love with these too. All I have to say is…at least they’re not the Browns new ones.

    @Tenn Supersam
    Again, WIPE UR MOUTH in between ur dives to Mariotta’s crotch b4 u post here.

  16. WS99 Says:

    I’d really like to see them rock the black throwbacks for TNF. Black #3’s you wouldn’t be able to keep them in stock.

  17. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Lol Buc1979,that hater suckasam will be here as long the marita kid is a member of the NFL which at my guestimation will be any where between 4 and 6 years. Those Oregon guys don’t usually stick around all that long.

  18. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Gotta agree with BB.

    The fact this is so shocking is not because of Jameis, it is because the uniforms are so satanic-like hideous. Went from best unis in the league to the worst.

    Not fit for God’s Quarterback.

  19. Cannon Says:

    Just thought I’d throw out that I have a Bucs helmet, signed by Cadillac Williams sitting here on my desk.

    Yep nothing new from Erik in the mail yet.

  21. Dave Pear Says:

    I told you that Erik the Snake Oil Salesman was going to screw you.
    He just sounded too shady to me.
    I know he said all the right things like, “Hey, I’m a man of my word, plus you have my work website right here. Why would I not send you a jersey?”
    Lying sack of Siberian sheep sh!t!!
    I’m canceling my order of natural Boner pills!

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    lol Dave…yep but he did e-mail me back asking for my shipping address. Of course that was 3 weeks or so ago…

    Perhaps I can dig up some of my old online friends to do a number on his website for him.

    Oh well, I’ll buy my own soon I guess. If I can bring myself to buy one them ugly things.

    I have a Buc-Cave in my house with wall to wall jerseys hung up on coat hangers as well as many other things. I really don;t want to put that ugly jersey on my wall, but I guess I might have to at some point.

    I have no creamsicles though, not since I had Vinny’s way back in well 1987. I
    lost that sucker somewhere in my travels from state to state as a youngin’. Always wanted another creamsicle jersey. I think the creams look better than these new ones.

  23. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Damn, 87, that sucks. I was really hoping you would get your jersey. I don’t see Erik from Dirty Steroid Athletics on here anymore. New name??

  24. Pick6 Says:

    My absurdly priced club seats come with a big credit and discount for food drinks and merchandise. I’ll be in the stadium for preseason game #1 and you can bet I’ll be adding myself to that jersey sales tally that day, and grabbing a few for Noles fan family members who are adoption the bucs as their NFL team
