Bengals announce final sales numbers of Devon Still jerseys
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Bengals announced the new numbers Monday for the sales of Devon Still's jersey.
The team says they've sold just under 15,000 jerseys, and have sold jerseys to all 50 states and a few countries outside of the United States.
In addition, the Bengals are giving $1.4 million to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
Bengals Executive Vice President Katie Blackburn will present a check to Cincinnati Children's Hospital president Michael Fisher during the first quarter of the Bengals vs. Browns game on Nov. 6.
Still's jersey went on sale online on Sept. 9 for $100. The pro shop ended sales online Sunday night at midnight.
Ever since making the announcement that they would sell the jerseys, there has been support throughout the community and the entire league.
The New Orleans Saints placed an order for 100 jerseys, boosting a two-day total well beyond one thousand jerseys sold, according to Jeff Berding, the Bengals' director of sales and public affairs.
Still's jersey had more sales in a 24-hour period than any Bengals jersey in history, according to Berding.
Devon Still announced in June on instagram that his 4-year-old daughter Leah has stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer.
