GREEN BAY - The stage is set.
The retirement ceremony to honor Packers wide receiver Donald Driver kicks off Wednesday at 11 a.m.
Driver played 14 seasons for the green and gold, and has become a fan favorite both on and off the field.
Now, Packers nation is preparing for the big day.
Tuesday, workers set the stage for the Donald Driver retirement ceremony on Wednesday morning. 1,000 for the event were gone in fifteen minutes.
Besides Driver himself, Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy, general manager Ted Thompson, and head coach Mike McCarthy are scheduled to speak.
Those who didn't get tickets honored Driver in other ways.
In Bellevue, Angie LeRoy says she has followed the Packers for 50 years. And in that time, she says one name stands alone.
"How does Donald compare to the others?" FOX 11 asked. "You can't compare Donald to nobody, he's tops," said Angie LeRoy, Packers fan.
LeRoy spent three hours constructing a Valentine's Day/Donald Driver thank you card. It is displayed on her front door.
"I just felt he deserves a thank you and appreciate what he, how hard he worked to make the Packers so good, and everything, so that's why," said LeRoy.
Fans were gearing up, but getting gear is going to be tough. At the Jersey Store in Ashwaubenon, there were t-shirts and pennants. Official jerseys only came in children's sizes.
"Looks like six total jerseys left, so that's the extent of our jersey collection," said Mike Walters, Jersey Store manager.
Mike Walters says adult Driver jerseys were gone before Christmas. And with jerseys now being provided by Nike, the future of Driver jerseys is up in the air.
"Haven't heard from my Nike representative in terms of what may or may not be available over the next few months for Donald Driver, so I guess what I'd tell fans is grab it if you can, because you don't know when that won't be around anymore," said Walters.
LeRoy has her jersey, but she doesn't have tickets to the retirement ceremony.
She says that's ok.
"He's my idol. I was a cancer survivor, and I just hope someday I can get a hug from him," said LeRoy.
