Four Cubs in Top 5 of MLB jersey sales
Four Cubs in Top 5 of MLB jersey sales

Kris Bryant is everything a team could want in a franchise player. He's big, he's tall, he's athletic and he's not so tough on the eyes either.

And apparently people really like to see his name on the back of their jerseys.

The reigning National League MVP topped the list of MLB jersey sales since the end of the 2016 World Series based on numbers from MLBShop.com released Friday.

Bryant is one of four Cubs in the Top 5 in jersey sales this season (Anthony Rizzo No.2, Javier Baez No.4, Kyle Schwarber No.5) and one of eight National League players in the Top 10 of the list.

In fact, the first eight players on the list are NL players.
