05:15 PM ET 02.04 | Each year, the NFL prints up championship gear for both Super Bowl participants. After all, the outcome often isn't decided until the waning moments of the game, and the NFL has to have the championship hats and t-shirts ready for the players immediately following the game. Likewise, retailers must be ready for whoever wins the game, as stores across the country want to be able to sell the latest championship gear -- especially if the store is located in or around the championship city. Since the Ravens were victorious on Sunday, championship gear proclaiming the 49ers Super Bowl XLVII champions will be donated to World Vision, who will in turn distribute the clothing to underdeveloped countries, where the clothing is needed.
