Panini prepares Tim Tebow’s first Patriots card
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor
Tim Tebow signed with a new team just a couple of days ago. That gave Panini America enough time to ready his first card as a member of the New England Patriots.
Tebow’s first New England card will appear in 2013 Panini Rookie & Stars, which is scheduled for an August 21 release.
“Whenever you have a player with the level of popularity Tim has, and that player moves to a new team, it reinvigorates the collectibility of that player,” said Jason Howarth, Panini America’s Vice President of Marketing on the company’s blog. “Fans of that player — and football fans in general — want to acquire the first trading cards of that player in his new uniform. Panini is excited to continue to deliver to Tim Tebow fans the very best football trading cards out there.”
