The equipment is sold out at the second Chiefs Locker Room Sale

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One man’s dirty laundry is another man’s treasure, as Chiefs fans score points at the Chiefs Pro Shop Locker Room Sale. It’s the second year the Chiefs Pro Shop has hosted the sale outside Arrowhead Stadium.

Hundreds of Chiefs fans are going home with special gear, some of it worn by the Super Bowl champions. Some of those fans waited in line for more than four hours to get into the pavilion.

One fan said it was worth the wait as he was able to get his hands on some Chiefs gear. He arrived at 8:30 a.m. while others didn’t arrive until 4:15 a.m.

“I came around the corner and there were already about 300 people in line,” said Chiefs fan Frank Tamburello.

“I think I have 15 or 20 things here.”

After waiting in line for two hours, Bionica Jackson got the call to stop by the Locker Room Sale. Like many others, she wants to cross a few gifts off her Christmas list.

“I’m going to look at T-shirts,” Jackson said.

“I’ll look at the shoes. They probably don’t have my size, but maybe I’ll find something for my husband.”

Kevin Bayus, the retail manager of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrow Market, said they saw 200 to 300 people before noon, and the line out the door was still there. They offered thousands of items, he said, including practice and game jerseys, soccer balls, cleats and gloves.

“You can see it in the winning culture that prevails here and it’s good to give some items back to the fans at reasonable prices and you can see it in the enthusiasm of the fans that are here,” Bayus said.

While some pieces have been on the field, others have not been worn yet. Bayus said the jerseys belong to former and current players. They even sell compression pants for players and coaches, but that costs money. We saw some belonging to Patrick Mahomes for sale for $200 and Andy Ried selling for $100.

“It happened on the field. I mean, it could have been any player, but it’s still great to have something that was part of the Super Bowl run,” said Chiefs fan Alex Otto.

Bayus said the first Chiefs fans lined up at 4:15 a.m.

Otto said he would be here earlier next year. But he still got himself a hoodie.

“The hoodie cost $25, but it normally costs $75 to $100 in stores,” Otto said.

“But I think it’s kind of cool to have something like Chiefs memorabilia.”

“I’m wearing the Chiefs jersey, Chiefs,” said three-year-old Connor Madden.

His mother, Mallory, had traveled from Emporia to attend the sale. It was her three-year-old son’s first time at Arrowhead. They got more than they bargained for and met KC Wolf while waiting in line.

“His room is decorated with Chiefs motifs, he’s going to be a big Chiefs player for sure,” Madden said.

Some Swifties skipped their cardigan and burst into the party. Tanner Hansult wore his number 87 Swift t-shirt as he picked up some merchandise.

“I didn’t get a Travis Kelce jersey or a Mahomes jersey,” Hansult said.

Organizers said they had seen a larger crowd than last year. As of Friday afternoon, the equipment is almost gone.

The locker room sale planned for Saturday will be closed.
