Tom Brady stands atop the NFLPA Top 50 Player Sales List at the end of the 2015-16 season. The list is based on total sales of officially licensed merchandise from March 1, 2015 through February 29, 2016. Brady took the lead back from Russell Wilson, who was the best-selling player for the previous two quarters.

Brady last held the top spot on the list in the first quarter of 2015, when sales reports were released on July 23, 2015.

Rounding out the season-ending top five are the recently-retired Peyton Manning, Wilson, Aaron Rodgers and Dez Bryant. Joining them in the top 10 are Odell Beckham Jr., Cam Newton, Rob Gronkowski, J.J. Watt and Jason Witten.

The list is released quarterly by the NFLPA, via its licensing and marketing arm NFL Players Inc., and is based on overall sales of all licensed products from online and traditional retail outlets.  The NFLPA collects data reported from more than 80+ NFLPA licensees. Licensed product categories include men’s, women’s and youth game jerseys and t-shirts, wall decals, figurines, toys, matted and framed photos, ugly sweaters, bobbleheads, pins, drinkware, socks and electronic device accessories, among others.

NFLPA licensees generated retail sales exceeding $1.5 billion during the year.
