'Bobby! Bobby! Bobby!': Bucks fans gear up with top-selling items ahead of Game Six of NBA Finals

NOW: ’Bobby! Bobby! Bobby!’: Bucks fans gear up with top-selling items ahead of Game Six of NBA Finals

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Bucks fans are gearing up as the team returns to Milwaukee for Game Six of the NBA Finals.

Dozens of fans lined up outside of the Bucks Pro Shop early this morning, hoping there might be something inside worth buying.

"I wanted to bring them down, just so they could witness the history here," Kate Quamme said with her two sons next to her. "They're going to get something cool inside."

There's been a steady stream of customers in the shop at Fiserv Forum for the past several weeks.

"It doesn't even have to be finals product, people are just looking to have Bucks product right now," Director of Retail for the Milwaukee Bucks Chrysta Jorgensen said.

Jorgensen said player gear is a top selling item. Right now, Bobby Portis is everybody's favorite.

"The 'Bobby! Bobby! Bobby!' t-shirt," Jorgensen said. "I would say he has catapulted to the very top in the last 48 hours for sure. That's a very special shirt. Of, course Pat Connaughton wore it in the walk-in for game five. So, that was fun for us."

The hottest item of all is Game 6 tickets.

"Immediately after the win we started seeing sales come through, and it's been pretty hectic ever since," Ticket King President John Lamoreaux said.

Tickets start at $1,000, and that's just for standing room. A seat in the upper level is going for at least $1,400. You'll have trouble finding tickets for less than $2,000 in the lower bowl.

"People want to be there to celebrate a championship," Lamoreaux said. "It's all about that clinching game."

If you can't swing those prices, chances are there's something downstairs in the Pro Shop to remember the experience by.

"You don't get a chance to say you've been a part of a championship team very often," Jorgensen said.

The Bucks Pro Shop will close for a couple of hours before fans are let into the Deer District for Game 6 Tuesday night. This is so they can restock and do a security sweep. 

The organization's plan for possibly selling championship merchandise after a potential win Tuesday is still in the works.
