Friday and Saturday (Sept. 19-20), Baltimore Ravens fans stood for hours in a line that wrapped around the MT&T Bank Stadium to trade in their once cherished Ray Rice jersey.

The Baltimore Ravens organization held this two day event, and nearly 8,000 people showed up to exchange their Rice jersey for a Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs, or Torrey Smith jersey. The Ravens ran out of jerseys, not anticipating the great amount of people that came for the exchange. As a result, team officials had to give out over 2,000 vouchers to fans.

It is estimated that this has cost the Ravens $250,000.
