It's been mere days since the official Bryce Harper Philadelphia Phillies merchandise was released on Fanatics, taking team sales to new heights within hours.
According to Fanatics, Harper's No. 3 jersey is the fastest selling player jersey of all time within 24 hours of its launch. That shouldn't be much of a surprise, though, when you remember how much Philadelphia Eagles gear fan bought after Super Bowl LII.
Considering how many people will be rocking those Harper Phillies jerseys come spring – so many that the team store at Citizens Bank Park ran out of the letter "R" at one point this week – take a departure from everyone else and look at some smaller businesses offering original Harper-related Phillies merch, as well as other team designs not solely focused on the new player.
Here are some places to shop so you can be among the best dressed at the ballpark this summer.

The self-proclaimed "ultimate Philly Sports brand" specializes in retro-inspired tees, selling new Eagles and Phillies apparel designs alongside vintage band and music tees. The online shop was also among the first to roll out Bryce Harper merch, including a signature Harper graphic on tees for adults, kids, and even babies.
This shop offers team clothing for a variety of cities, but its Philadelphia collection is above and beyond, already selling new "Bryce" T-shirts written in a Phillies-inspired font, also available in hoodie form. And, if you're in the mood to relieve a brief moment of Eagles glory, a Double Doink tee. The new designs also includes a Broad Street Bryce T-shirt.
Patrick Martin Art & Design, sold through Tee Public, is jumping on the Harper bandwagon, as well, including a "The Bryce is Right" design and an M-L-Bryce print, among several others reimagining Bryce's name with the Phillies' modern and vintage logos.

Shibe hasn't quite jumped aboard the Harper merch train yet, but the Philly-based shop is still a must when it comes to all Philly-sports-related apparel. The current Phillies collection includes some designs featuring Phil and Phyllis and more LOVE-inspired tees.
