Sean launched Jersey Champs in May 2016 out of his college dorm room at Rutgers University. [11] He started with $1,000 and took in pre-orders for his first jersey and sold all 100 jerseys within the first week. Jersey Champs' first jersey concept was for Drake's Views From the 6 album. [11] Combining hip-hop culture and trending memes with the world of jerseys, Sean collaborates with a team of independent graphic designers he found on Instagram and Behance to create the final product.
