The store has a variety of shirts to choose from, including one with both the Bengals' and Bills' mascots kneeling together. A fan favorite is the 513 shirt.
“513 is our area code here in Cincinnati and then you see the Bengal strips on the five and one and then three is Damar’s number so super creative job from our designers,” he said.
Cincinnati Bengals captain Ted Karras is wearing a special t-shirt on Thursday afternoon.
The shirt has the Cincinnati area code (513) at the top of it, with the number "3" being in all blue for Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin. The bottom of the shirt then reads "Stands with Buffalo."
Here's a look at it:
This is super classy of Karras to wear and it goes to show how everyone is continuing to pull for Hamlin.
Hamlin awakened on Wednesday night for the first time since he went into cardiac arrest on Monday night. He was even able to communicate through writing, asking who won the game after he was sent to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Hopefully, he'll continue to make more progress over the next 24 hours.
As for the Bengals, they're getting ready for a matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Over the course of two-and-a-half days, the store has sold over 10,000 shirts. Johnson said he’s proud of the outpouring of support.
“I’m surprised that the word got out so quickly,” he said. “What I’m not surprised about is that everybody wanting to help and everyone wanting to pitch in and do something.”
In this case, doing something means giving the net proceeds to Hamlin’s toy drive charity.
“Cincinnati has one of the biggest hearts in the country,” he said. “It was shown on the field. It was shown in the stands when it happened and I think it’s important for us to be a silver lining in all of this.”
Johnson said he’s glad that they can help support Hamlin and happy to hear that his health is improving.
“We support Buffalo, we support Damar and his family and the signs are positive and I just hope that that keeps increasing,” he said.
