Not so surprisingly, Seattle Sounders fans like buying jerseys featuring players from their favorite team. So it makes a lot of sense that the list of the top 25 MLS jersey sales is pretty well dominated by Sounders.

MLS put out its annual list of best-selling shirts — through — and there were four Sounders among the top 11 and six among the top 22. Atlanta United had the second most in the Top 25 with five, followed by the Portland Timbers (three) and New York City FC (three).

Somewhat surprisingly, Jordan Morris comes out on top among the Sounders, moving ahead of Clint Dempsey, who has historically been one of the top sellers in MLS. Morris is also the only Homegrown Player on this list.

That Nicolas Lodeiro and Osvaldo Alonso also rank near the top probably makes sense as they are well-established stars at this point. It was also neat to see Roman Torres (20) and Cristian Roldan (22) make this list for the first time.
