Every football fan deems it necessary to own their favorite team’s shirt because it shows loyalty and commitment. Football is one of the most popular sports and generates massive income from selling players’ shirts, especially the clubs make most of their money by selling player-signed or jersey number shirts.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have governed the charts for the most number of shirt sales. Both iconic players attract millions of fans to stores or online to buy their respective shirts.
