Panini readies Tim Tebow’s first Jets card


By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Sure, it took Tim Tebow two tries to attempt a trade from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, but Panini America was on it the first time around.

With a look at his first Jets football card and its first NFL card set of 2012 — Prestige.

Whether this card makes its way into packs — or is replaced by something else — remains to be seen. Heck, things might change again by draft day.

    Where’s the jump to conclusions mat?

    Nobody said this one was going to be an SP. Just saying.

    Wish Panini’s time was spent handling customer service requests instead of creating mock cards…

    Well I never really collected football cards before, only baseball,basketball and wrestling and the Jets are my favorite team so I guess now would be a great time to incorporate a new collecting venture in Tebow Jets cards. So in my opinion Tebow to the Jets good and his future in the hobby just improved and I am one little speckle of proof of that.

    Panini should be working on the redemptions they have owed people for years instead of photo shopping the new Tebow card. How about some news on why Panini is slacking in the redemption department?

    I’m willing to enlist in the war to prevent Panini from ever producing licensed baseball cards.

    I miss the days when a traded player or free agent simply had “Traded to Jets” or “Signed by Broncos” on their card, rather than a photoshopped jersey.

    So Panini can photoshop Tebow in a Jets and Manning in a Broncos uniform, but they cant get Kyrie Irving in a Cavaliers uniform? Shows you were Panini’s priorities are. No basketball rookie cards at all for the 2011-12 NBA season.

    Panini YOU SUCK!
