Every year, Major League Baseball releases the numbers for the top selling jersey in the league and to nobody’s shock, New York Yankees closer and eventual Hall of Fame pitcher Mariano Rivera takes the nod in his final season.

Coming in second was also a fellow New York player, though, it wasn’t from the Yankees as some might expect – nope – in fact it was from the crosstown Mets as ace Matt Harvey took the second spot.

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig took the third spot while Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles and Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants rounded out the top five.

Three members of the New York Yankees (Rivera, Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano) made the top twenty while three members of the Dodgers (Puig, Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu) also cracked the list.

The Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets all had two representatives on the list.
