    Phillies fans didn’t have to head to a brick and mortar store to pick up gear.

    Case in point, Nasir Jones, who sets up shop at 11th and Market Street in Center City to sell.

    Jones: Oils, incense, natural shea butter, um we supply the streets with knowledge books and everything. This is what we sell on 11th and market but right now the Phillies is what we really doing that’s profiting today.

    Jones says right now the only pieces of Phillies merchandise he’s selling is a $10 dollar red World Series shirt.

    One Phillies fan from Southwest Philadelphia who was decked out in team gear while walking through Center City, said people have been asking him all day about his shirt that says “Fighting Phils, Back to Back NL Champs.”
