Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi among leaders in WNBA jersey sales

After leading all WNBA players in jersey sales in the last two seasons, former UConn star Maya Moore dropped to the No. 4 spot behind the high-profile rookies Brittney Griner, Skylar Diggins and Elena Delle Donne. Former Huskies Diana Taurasi checks in at No. 6.

Here is release from the WNBA:

The “3 to See” claimed the top three spots on the WNBA’s top-selling jerseys list, based on national merchandise sales including since the start of the 2013 regular season.  Rookies Brittney Griner of the Phoenix Mercury, Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock, and Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky ranked first, second, and third, respectively. Maya Moore, who’s held the No. 1 spot for the past two seasons, placed fourth, while the Los Angeles Sparks’ Candace Parker ranked fifth.

Diggins’ popularity helped the Shock claim the No. 1 position for the first time for team merchandise sales while the teams of first-time All-Stars Griner (Mercury) and Delle Donne (Sky) placed second and third, respectively. Rounding out the top five teams are the Washington Mystics (No. 4) and the 2012 top-selling Indiana Fever (No. 5). 

In its 17th season, the WNBA remains the most successful women’s professional sports league. This year’s All-Star Team includes seven players from the most popular jerseys list: Griner (No. 1), Delle Donne (No. 3), Moore (No. 4), Parker (No. 5), Diana Taurasi of the Mercury (No. 6), Seimone Augustus of the Lynx (No. 7), and Tamika Catchings (No. 8) of the Fever.
