According to the 2023 uniform sales data provided by 10 professional baseball clubs to Yonhap News on the 21st, all 10 clubs answered that uniform sales increased from last year.

The most prominent club is the LG Twins, which won the championship for the first time in 29 years.

LG’s overall uniform sales increased 38% and glossy jumpers increased 185% compared to 2022.

If it sold 100 pieces last year, it means it sold 138 uniforms and 285 glossy jumpers this year.

“Considering that many uniforms and glossy jumpers were sold last year, it is a huge increase,” said Ko Dong-hyun, head of LG’s marketing team. “A variety of products, including uniforms, have been sold so much that it is difficult to compare them to the past.”

The sales and sales of glossy jumpers, a symbol of “Autumn Baseball,” are reported to have reached all-time highs.

Team leader Ko said, “All the members of the marketing team had a busy time,” adding, “It was a very busy but rewarding year.”

Oh Ji-hwan was the No. 1 player in the team’s uniform sales, accounting for 24 percent of the team’s sales. Hong Chang-ki (18 percent) and Park Hae-min (14 percent) were followed.

The LG club did not reveal the number of uniforms sold and sales, but it is estimated that at least 10,000 Oh Ji-hwan uniforms were sold.

Clubs whose team ranking has fallen have also increased their sales of uniforms.

Kiwoom Heroes was followed by Kim Hye-sung (20.0%) and Ahn Woo-jin (11.2%), with Lee Jung-hoo (San Francisco Giants), who entered the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB), showing 35.4% sales within the team.

A Kiwoom official said, “The three players ranked first to third last year, more than doubled based on sales in the first half of the year.”

For Hanwha Eagles, who failed to advance to the postseason, “Prince of Daejeon” Moon Dong-ju (32.0%) and next-generation giant Noh Si-hwan (27.0%) led the sale of uniforms.

In the Samsung Lions, young players also took the lead in selling uniforms, with Lee Jae-hyun (20.0%) ranking first in the team.

A Samsung official said, “Uniform sales this year increased by about 28% compared to last year,” adding, “This is the highest increase ever.”

KIA Tigers (Kim Do-young), NC Dinos (Kim Joo-won) and Lotte Giants (Kim Min-seok) also led the popularity of young players as they topped the team’s uniform sales.

Although it won the overall title last year, SSG Landers’ uniform sales, which fell short of expectations, also increased slightly this year.

For Doosan Bears, Yang Eui-ji (28.1%) topped the team, followed by Jung Soo-bin and Heo Kyung-min.

Many Doosan fans seem to have changed their sales rankings as they purchased new uniforms of Yang Eui-ji, who returned after five years.

In KT Wiz, Park Young-hyun (10.0%), whose uniform sales rate was low until last year, was ranked in the top three this year.

A kt official said, “Park Young-hyun’s uniform sales have increased significantly since the middle of the season,” adding, “In particular, many fans bought uniforms while playing at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.”

Uniform sales are distributed to the players in the form of incentives. The criteria for distribution vary by club.

As can be seen from the sale of uniforms, this year’s professional baseball has recovered its popularity to the level before the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19).

The total number of regular season spectators was 8,10326, surpassing 8 million spectators for the first time in five years since 2018.

Professional baseball had a series of unfavorable factors, including the elimination of the first round of the World Baseball Classic earlier this year, but fans were invited to the baseball stadium due to the challenge of popular team LG to win and the succession of next-generation stars such as Moon Dong-ju, Noh Si-hwan, Lee Eui-ri and Park Young-hyun.
