We are mere days away from the first preseason game of the year for the NFL. Teams are back at camps and fans are excited to get the season underway.
Many fans take this time of year to gear themselves up for the upcoming season. This means buying apparel of all kinds, but especially our beloved jerseys.
Buying a jersey is tricky business in this day and age. What is the point of buying a jersey of a guy who may only be around for one year? What is the point of buying a jersey for a guy who only plays sparingly?
We all want a little individuality in our jersey purchase, but we also strive for value. For Vikings fans, this can be confusing. There have been a lot of personnel changes over the last few years which have rendered many jerseys out of date. How many people ran out and got a new #84 jersey last year for Moss's one month in Minneapolis?
I took a look at the current roster of the Vikings, "current" being the key word, and compiled a list of the 10 best jerseys for a Vikes fan to buy today. I took into account both current value to team, likability, future prospect, and individuality of purchase to rank these.
