From September to December, the San Francisco 49ers ranked 4th in NFL merchandise sales behind the Steelers, Cowboys and Packers, while the Baltimore Ravens ranked 10th.

The star players on each team, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, are also bumping helmets off the field in merchandise sales on Fanatics.com. Since announcing his retirement on January 2, 2013, Lewis’ #52 Ravens jersey is the top-selling jersey on Fanatics.com during the month of January, up a resounding 2000% compared to last January.
