As of early Friday afternoon, NFL Panthers fans pre-ordered more than 100 Cam Newton
replica jerseys online and at Bank of America Stadium’s team store, according to Tom Crocker
, GM for Delaware North Sportservice, the Panthers’ retail provider. Newton’s jersey number was expected to be determined later Friday, so those items can be shipped directly to customers by Wednesday, Crocker said. To jump-start sales, Sportservice sent an e-mail alert to Panthers season-ticket holders within minutes of Carolina selecting Newton as the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. The jerseys cost $85. Sportservice is also selling Cam Newton T-shirts for $22-28 on shoppanthers.com.
