Wait, You Haven't Got Your Championship Eagles Gear Yet?Last Edited:
Eagles fans in Atlantic County made their way to a shopping center early Monday to get their hands on Super Bowl gear.
On Monday, February 5th, the day after the Philadelphia Eagles' dramatic 41-33 victory over the favored New England Patriots, many excited fans made their way to Dick's Sporting Goods in Mays Landing to snag Eagles Super Bowl LII memorabilia.
The store opened its doors at 6 a.m. to begin selling the championship sports wear.
Items including hats, shirts, banners and more were flying off the shelves as long-time fans got their little piece history.
"It's the first time — even if they repeat in other years — we have the shirts of the first time that they won something," said Fred Stabene, of Ocean City.
"I waited my entire life for it," said Walt Parlow, of Sicklerville, "so I told my boys after I got both of them shirts [this] may never happen again in your lifetime so get it while you can [and let's] enjoy it while we can."
Many Eagles fans are grabbing their Super Bowl gear to wear to the Eagles victory parade on Thursday, February 8th, which officials say is set to start at 11 a.m at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue and will head towards the Philadelphia Art Museum.
