If you can forgive the over-alliterative headline, we’ve got good news for you Tim Tebow lovers.
Joining in on what appears to be mass hysteria over the Mile High Messiah, Topps confirmed today that its soon-to-release Precision line will include just what the world needs — more Tebow. The company has added 50 more Tebow autographs in the product by way of redemption cards.
While collectors will have to wait to get their hands on the T-bonus, Topps has a decent reason for not including the actual cards in the pack-out.
The extra cards are apparently called ‘Tim Tebow Precision Comeback Autographs‘ — which doesn’t precisely fit the name of the brand, but gives the company an opportunity to strike while the iron is hot this season.
Aptly-named Comeback autographs will showcase Tebow’s fourth-quarter clout, including the overtime “miracle” he recently pulled off against the Steelers. Collectors can likely count on any other come-from-behind playoff victories to be highlighted in the extra autograph set.
Each card from the last-minute inclusion will be numbered to nine or less, which should make these commemorative cards a hot commodity when they finally land.
For the Tebow-obsessed fan who just can’t wait to stock up on his signatures, the company also pointed out a few major chase factors in its freshly-released (as in, on shelves today) 2011 Topps Supreme brand:
Stay tuned to Beckett.com for more information about Tebow’s Comeback Autographs as images and other details emerge.
Have you officially jumped on the Tebow bandwagon?
REDEMPTIONS? YEAH, THAT SOUNDS GREAT!!!
Not to worry. After this weekend’s game against the Pats, Tebow will have nothing but spare time on his hands to sign all the autos Topps will need.
I wonder what made them decide on putting Bradford in the triple and Sanchez/Ryan in the quad. Stafford seems like he’d have been a better choice.
I’m no “front-runner!” I’ve been “Tebow-ized” since he won the Heisman his sophomore year and took Florida to back-to-back National Championships. My son-in-law, on the other hand, still believes that Bradford is the better of the two…..
i agree with the above that after this weekend his season will be over. i also watched him as a gator and thought he was so fun to watch. if elway can show/teach him more passing he will be just as good in the nfl. it is obvious he is still afraid to let the ball go and be able to check down receivers when needed. if you are a tebow rider be patient and hope in the offseason or get off at the next stop
Redemptions? I have been waiting over 5 months for my Manny Machado Bowman Platinum auto redemptions. I have not bought a Topps product since. Redemptions are killing collecting.
Don’t hate the player, hate the game. But in the case of redemptions like Machado? Hate the player.
Chris, in regards to the “doggone A & G” article, you forgot the most important and unique past A & G dog card of them all! The 2007 A & G N43 Diamond Jim box loader and his ultra-scarce “paw-print” autograph parallel:). Sorry for posting within this question but I thought there’d be a better chance that you would see it. Can’t wait for BGS to come to Portland again, see you soon Jeromy:). Sincerely, D.J.
