The Pro Football Hall of Fame thought that offering Green Bay Packer fans the chance to make a down payment to buy a ticket for the 2016 Enshrinement was ahead of the curve. But now, Raven fans are planning for 2018 when former all-pro linebacker Ray Lewis becomes eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame.

In Baltimore, the countdown has already started for Ravens fans to witness one of their legends be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Lewis isn't eligible for two years and may not be a first ballot Hall of Famer, but one thing is for certain, the line is forming.
Ready to storm Canton, Ravens fans want to see Lewis mentioned and honored among some of the greats to have ever played for the franchise, Johnny Unitas and Gino Marchetti.
According to Superior Tour in Baltimore, the bus company has started taking reservations for Enshrinement Weekend and opened a reservation bank in January for the Lewis Trip to Canton, so far they have 70 guest registered.
The Superior package will include a round-trip transportation, three nights lodging, admissions to the induction ceremony, the concert for legends and the football game.
Superior Tours is gearing up for what they hope to be an amazing event in Canton, Ohio. They are no stranger to hosting sports fanatics, they rolled out the red carpet when Cal Ripen Jr. was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
"I learned with the Cal Ripken induction, we did that nine years ago, we started a couple of years in advance and we ended up with 12 buses and 600 people,” said executive vice president Marc Komins, in an interview with www.bizjournals.com. “That is our goal with this one."
Lewis finished his all-pro career with 2,055 tackles, 67 pass defense and 41.5 sacks. He would become the second Raven in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, alongside former teammate Johnathan Ogden who was enshrined in 2013.
