Nike raises NFL jersey prices


When Nike took over as the official uniform supplier of the NFL, prices of team jerseys raised and fans were not very happy. The cheapest jersey would cost $100 with the most expensive jersey being priced at $250, and now Nike has decided to raise their jersey prices for the 2014 season.

While the cheapest jersey will remain at $100, the authentic jerseys that carried the top price tag will be raised by nearly 20 percent.

According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, the Limited jersey will go from $135 to $150 while the Elite jersey, which is as close as fans can get to wearing the jerseys players wear on the field, will jump from $250 to $295.

It is important to note that Nike executives made the decision to raise the prices and the league was not involved.
