The card companies didn’t take long to get Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow into their respective new uniforms.
Topps released card images that will appear in 2012 Bowman, which will arrive in May.
Manning is in navy and orange for the Denver Broncos and Tebow with a white jersey and green pants for his new team, the New York Jets.
These cards will be short-prints.
Panini released an image of Tebow in a Jets uniform on Wednesday.
“It’s important to capture the sport accurately, which is why we’re doing everything we can to get the players in their new uniforms,” Topps Vice President Mark Sapir told The Associated Press. “Literally, as soon as the Tebow announcement was made, there were emails made back and forth, doing everything as quickly as we can to make sure we get that card for football fans.”
