Michael Vick Eagles Jerseys For Sale Quickly
It hasn't taken long for Michael Vick jerseys to hit the market now that the once-incarcerated quarterback is back in the NFL.
While some might call the move to offer fans the jersey of a man connected with a crime, many others felt compelled to offer Vick a fresh start by buying his familiar number seven jersey, this time in the Eagles colors. Pro football's marketing department was clearly prepared for Vick's return.

"I don't really understand the fascination, but it would appear as if there is definitely a new market for Vick Eagles jerseys," said one observer of the NFL's wildly successful jersey market. "It's awfully soon to put him back out there, but for a lot of people I guess he represents a fresh start. Hopefully he turns this into a positive for himself and those who care about animals and are relying on Vick to make good on his promise to make amends."
Once one of the league's most marketable players and top selling official NFL jerseys, Vick jerseys were seldom worn and purchased even less over the last couple of years. The former Atlanta Falcons star served time for a dog fighting conviction and his popularity took a beating. He won't wear the Falcons jersey again, but even those are still available online.
Many Philadelphia fans were lukewarm to the idea and it's not clear how many Michael Vick Eagles jerseys will be worn as the team prepares for the 2009 NFL season, but early indications are it will be more than a few.
