By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Tim Tebow cards have had a certain level of popularity since the first ones came out. Until recently, that only meant football. But it’s not stopping there. Although still very much a long shot to make the majors, Tim Tebow baseball cards don’t share the same underdog status.

Just like anything with Tebow’s name, his early baseball cards are more than mere novelties. They have been popular from the get-go, at least compared to what he’s actually accomplished on the diamond. In that regard, it’s a similar situation to Michael Jordan baseball cards.

Although his career in the sport is just beginning, there are already several Tim Tebow baseball cards out there. From regular cards to ones with autographs and memorabilia pieces, plenty of options exist. Here’s a look what’s been released so far.

2017 Topps Pro Debut Tim Tebow #PDTT SP
