Polamalu, the Steelers fearless safety, who flies around the field throwing his body at opposing teams with his long thick mane of hair flowing out from under his helmet, topped all jersey sales for the last year. Polamalu has grown even more famous for his Head and Shoulders ad campaign that is wildly successful.
The Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers was number 2 on the list. The Saints quarterback Drew Brees came in at number 3. The Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was at number 4 and the Broncos back up quarterback and media hyped player of the decade probably, Tim Tebow rounded out the top 5.
Last year’s number one seller, the Vikings former quarterback Brett Favre, fell to number 14 on the list.
Polamalu has become ever more popular since his Head and Shoulders ad campaign debuted. The ads now include athletes from other sports like the Twins Joe Mauer who are showing making fun of Polamalu’s commercial acting. He is as famous for his play and his commercials as he is for his hair, which has a life of it’s own.
Polamalu gets the news about his top selling jersey on this his 30th birthday.
