Who bought Antonio Brown jerseys for postgame swaps

The answer for the title question is the Antonio Brown, who bought his own authentic home nfl jerseys after game.

Why did this? Look the following picture:

When Antonio Brown swapped his NFL home jerseys with New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. after Sunday’s game in Heinz Field, Brown was coming out of pocket to do so.

“I buy all my authentic jerseys,” Brown said Friday.

Brown bought a stack of cheap jerseys before the summer season with the expectation that he’ll give many vintage away. As one of the league’s most marketable stars, Brown said he gets asked by opposing players for his authentic jerseys top fairly often, but not every game.

The Steelers provide standard game-day fare, but parting gifts go on the tab — jersey about $200 a pop, center Maurkice Pouncey said. The Detroit Lions also charge that price to players. The Jacksonville Jaguars charge around $250.

Brown — who’s dished out money for everything from jerseys fines to end zone celebrations — declined to comment on how much he paid up front, though he told ESPN in September that any on-field costs are “nothing to a boss.”

Pouncey has purchased wholesale authentic jerseys for moments like Week 6, when he exchanged with his brother, Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey.

There’s a process to Maurkice’s garb removal. He isn’t handing them out like Halloween candy, but only if the moment fits.

“I like to be selective,” Pouncey said.

For players with short professional shelf lives, though, a cheap jersey swap can create lasting memories.

“Twenty years from now, when I’m not in the league, I still have memories of this guy as a player,” Lions safety Glover Quin told ESPN’s Mike Rothstein for a 2015 story on the concept of authentic nfl jersey swapping. “People come to my house and say, ‘Hey, you got this nice nfl jersey right there.’ Yeah, I remember this guy, and this guy.”
