Tim Tebow Cards Rise After Another Dramatic Win

Tim Tebow Cards Rise After Another Dramatic Win

One of the most interesting aspects of sports is crunching the numbers. Stats can be compiled and arranged in a seemingly infinite number of ways. But there's really only one stat that matters: wins. In that regard, is there anyone more compelling in sports right now than Tim Tebow? After another dramatic Broncos win Thursday night against the New York Jets, collectors seem to be taking the polarizing quarterback to the next level. Tim Tebow cards are hot.

With 58 seconds remaining, Tebow ran the ball in for a touchdown, giving the Broncos a stunning 17-13 win. Before the winning drive, the Denver offense was brutal, being forced to punt on eight consecutive possessions. On the night, Tebow's numbers weren't overly impressive, completing nine of 20 passes for 104 yards.

However, this is the third time in a month that the Heisman winner has brought the Broncos back. Tebow is 4-1 since taking over from Kyle Orton as starting QB. More importantly, Denver has clawed their way back to playoff contention, bringing their record to 5-5. They're currently sitting a half game behind Oakland in the AFC West. Imagine what Tim Tebow cards will do if he pulls off some postseason dramatics.

Here's a look at recent eBay results of some of the key first-year Tim Tebow cards:
