More Black and Gold gear selling now than at the start of the season

There are plenty of reasons to be proud of the New Orleans Saints right now, and fans are loading up on black and gold gear more now than even before the season. That observation is from Pat Randazza with Purple and Gold Sports and Black and Gold Sports in Baton Rouge.

"It started off a little slow but it's picked up much better now, it's great," said Randazza. "With the talk of going to the playoffs heating up I expect it to keep on."

Randazza says her biggest seller with Saints fans is by far the jerseys. She says the hottest one right now, other than Drew Brees, is the Alvin Kamara #41 jersey. The running back, who is having a breakout rookie season with the Saints, recently told fans to go ahead and buy his #41 jersey because he’s not changing it.

"Kamara jerseys, that's the one thing that's so hot right now. We just got our shipment a couple of weeks ago," said Randazza. "Always Drew Brees. Those are always the hottest."

Randazza says the third most popular jersey is running back Mark Ingram’s which she said spiked big time mid-season.

She also expects a busy holiday season and now is about the time shoppers are coming in to buy gifts for their fellow sports maniac friends.

"Things for your automobile are huge for Saints," said Randazza. "That's always a popular one for gifting."
