Tim Tebow's First New York Jets Cards Teased by Topps and Panini

Tim Tebow’s First New York Jets Cards Teased by Topps and Panini

It didn't take long for Topps and Panini to catch Tebowmania again. Both companies have already created mockups for their first cards of Tim Tebow in a New York Jets uniform.

Topps will debut their first Tebow Jets card in 2012 Bowman Signatures Football. Panini has Tebow tapped to wear green for the first time in 2012 Panini Prestige. Both sets are scheduled to come out in May.

The Bowman card even got a little mainstream attention, appearing on the front page of today's New York Post:

Under the bright lights of Broadway, collectors can expect an even bigger spotlight for the young quarterback. There's already talk of a quarterback controversy as Tebow is expected to challenge Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback spot.

And while Tim Tebow Jets jerseys are already being sold, fans may want to hold off. Reebok's deal to produce jerseys ends shortly. When Nike takes over, there are rumblings that they might overhaul the design. So those that buy early may not match the jersey that Tebow wears when he takes to the field for the first time in New York.

When the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning, it launched a domino effect that sent Tebow east. Topps and Panini were also quick to deliver images of cards showing Manning as a Bronco.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

  1. I really regret this photoshop mania. Where is the good old “real” photo of the player. No more suprises with the first sets; everybody knows how are the cards…
