BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Most Ravens fans would love to get their hands on some player-worn gear. That chance came this weekend at a special outlet sale at M&T Bank Stadium.
Gigi Barnett explains it comes just as the team welcomes new players to the lineup.
To hardcore Ravens fans, it may be the most supreme yard sale ever.
“This is a good deal,” said one fan.
Good deal indeed. A few weeks ago, the team did some locker room spring cleaning. They collected caps, T-shirts and even footwear.
“I found some nice sandals,” said fan Andrew Legaluppi.
“Sweatpants made by Nike that were issued to players over the last couple of years,” said Ravens retail director Chris Inouye.
Inouye says the team is passing on the deep discount to fans at this weekend closeout sale. Some of the hottest items are on the NFL issued and player-worn tables.
“It’s all been washed but typically the jerseys that have some wear and tear are what people are looking for,” he said.
“I believe in the power of laundry detergent,” said fan Maurice Coleman.
The team has never sold this gear before.
“Some nice player-worn stuff for $30? Sweet,” Legaluppi said.
Mary Kay and Lynn Holthaus are picking up Ravens treasures for a community benefit. After this weekend, their idea of yard sales has changed forever.
“You know you’re going to get something that you want and you like because it’s Ravens. How can you not?” Holthaus said.
Shopping for steeply-discounted Ravens gear should not make you miss the NFL draft. So the team set up HD-TVs in the stadium so fans can track the next Ravens selection.
The gear sold this weekend was from the 2012 and 2013 seasons, as well as Super Bowl XLVII. Fans looking for jerseys of recently drafted players can find them online.
