The NFLPA recently released its list of the "Year-End Top 50 NFL Player Sales List" and a pair of Detroit Lions made the cut.

Per the NFLPA website, edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown both made the list. Hutchinson landed at No. 18, up six spots from last year, while St. Brown was ranked No. 33 after not appearing on the last list.

Here's more from the NFLPA on how the list, which includes sales from March 1, 2023, through February 29, 2024, is compiled:

The NFLPA Top 50 Player Sales List is the only verified ranking of all officially licensed, NFL player-branded merchandise sold from online and traditional retail outlets as reported by over 85 NFLPA licensees such as Fanatics, Outerstuff, Nike, Fathead, FOCO and Funko. Licensed product categories included trading cards, men’s, women’s and youth game jerseys, T-shirts and hoodies, backpacks, wall decals, pennants, collectible figurines, matted and framed photos, bobbleheads, plush, drinkware, pet products, and many more.

Buying a player's merchandise always carries at least some risk. However, buying Hutchinson and/or St. Brown merchandise is about as safe an investment as there is.

Hutchinson has ascended into the conversation as one of the better pass-rushers in the NFL over his two seasons and is coming off a career-best campaign in which he tallied 11.5 sacks and earned his first Pro Bowl nod. Barring something unforeseen, he should be a Lions staple for years to come.

And the same can be said for St. Brown, who recently netted a massive extension after he posted career-highs in receptions (119), receiving yards (1,515) and touchdowns (10).

If the Lions can deliver on their expectations and pull in a Super Bowl this coming season, not only will both have a great shot to land higher on this list in 2025, the Lions may also have another player or two on it.
