Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association revealed the list of best-selling Majestic Athletic jerseys for the 2012 season. Once again, for the third straight year, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was number one of the list with the best-selling jersey in baseball.

Jeter was joined by two other Yankees in the top 10 best-selling since the All-Star break, with outfielder Ichiro Suzuki coming in at number three and second baseman Robinson Cano just making the cut at number 10. 

Texas Rangers outfielder and Most Valuable Player candidate Josh Hamilton followed Jeter as number two on the list. Rounding out the top five were popular rookies Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels. 

Jeter is now 38 years old and in his 18th season with the Yankees, but hasn't showed any signs of slowing down, batting .318 with 15 home runs and 58 RBI this season. He also leads the league with 213 hits and is the only player in the Majors to have reached 200 hits this year.
