The kiss seen around the world is what Michael Sam is most known for right now. People aren’t talking about his football play with Missouri, but how he reacted after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round.

And apparently it’s working for him. According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com, Sam’s jersey is the second highest selling rookie jersey only behind Johnny Manziel.

Today, the Rams announced Sam will wear No. 96. I’m curious if the Rams will back these jerseys like the Patriots are if Sam doesn’t make the team.

Highland Mint has even made a draft day coin for Sam.

Would you buy either of these items?
