Nationals Expect Higher Ticket, Merch Sales For Harper Home Debut
Published May 1, 2012
Though the team has had T-Shirts and jerseys with Harper’s name and No. 34 since last season, the expectation is for a bump in sales. Feffer said, “Given that this is his home debut and the excitement around Harper, we will have a significant increase in Harper jersey and name and number (T-shirt) sales.” The Nationals are averaging 24,712 fans per game at Nationals Park this season to date, up 18% compared to the same period last season. Harper's MLB debut came at Dodger Stadium before a sellout crowd.
