My first shopping tip:  Use your brain and not your heart.  A Nike Elite Chiefs jersey, according to the Chiefs website, will cost you $295.

Who's in charge of pricing? Lavar Ball?

That's a lotta lettuce to spend on anything, so I'm here to help you get the most bang for your buck when you buy your Chiefs jersey this year.

SMARTEST BUYS:

1.Kareem Hunt. Why? The owner's name is on the back. It's a timeless buy. Clark's not going anywhere. Kareem is probably going to start this year at some point. He's a rookie. He'll be around awhile and when he's gone...just say it's a Clark jersey.

2.Personalized jersey. "Big Daddy 69" is my all-time favorite. Unless you decide to rob a bank in your personalized jersey, it's a timeless buy. 

3.Chiefs Ring of Honor players. Derrick Thomas, Lenny the Cool, Willie Lanier etc. 

DUMBEST BUYS:

1. Any running back not named "Hunt."

2. A veteran player that makes a lot of money near the end of his contract like Alex Smith or Dustin Colquitt.  You're spending a lot of cash on a guy that's probably going to get cut (Jeremy Maclin.)

3. Kickers.  If you just spent $295 on a Cairo Santos jersey and he misses a game winning chip shot expect to get heckled and/or booze dumped on you.  Or worse.  Do you really want to get sucker punched because of a kicker?
