Unless you're one of those people who love jerseys, maybe. Then you could possibly have more Philly sports jerseys than the Pope now does after Mayor Nutter and his cohorts showered the Pontifex with gifts, most of which were sports jerseys with "Pope Francis" on the back.

From Dan McQuade at Philly Mag who suggested 7 gifts that the Philadelphia delegation should have given the Pope:

Pope Francis actually got jerseys of six Philadelphia sports teams: The four major sports, a Union jersey — which is at least a sport that’s popular in both Italy and the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s native Argentina — and the St. Joe’s Prep football jersey above. Yes, the Pope now owns a Phillies jersey; he can dress like Macklemore.

That's a lot of jersey violations.

I have one quasi retro Allen Iverson jersey from like ten years ago so the Pope now definitely has more Philly sports jerseys than I do.
