For the first time ever, you can buy an officially licensed Ohio State football jersey with a current player's name and number on the back.
After announcing last month that it would begin selling jerseys of current athletes through a group licensing agreement, Ohio State is now selling jerseys of more than 40 Ohio State football players who have voluntarily opted into that program.
As of Thursday afternoon, the list of player jerseys that were on sale was as follows (more players have been added over the course of the day, so check gobuckeyes.com for the most updated list of players available):
|77||OL||PARIS JOHNSON JR.|
|13||TE||GEE SCOTT JR.|
|33||RB||MASTER TEAGUE III|
Per the group licensing agreement with The Brandr Group, each player will receive a portion of the proceeds from each jersey sold with his name and number on it, though Ohio State has not specified how much money each player will receive per jersey. The jerseys, which are screen-printed replicas, are being sold for $120 each through gobuckeyes.com.
