Maybe it was Instagram videos with Salvador Perez.

Or it could have been the American League Championship Series MVP award he won.

Then again, it could have been any number of amazing catches Lorenzo Cain has made.

Whatever the case, Cain’s No. 6 jersey is the top seller among Royals players, according to Brett Salzenstein, the retail manager at Kauffman Stadium.

Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon were the next two best-selling jerseys.

Not surprisingly, Salzenstein said that jersey sale were up drastically this offseason. He couldn’t cite specific numbers, but did write in an email that “traffic has probably been up ten-fold with the fans finding out about our selection and that we are open year round.”
