Even if Tim Tebow spends the 2010 season standing on the sidelines holding a clipboard, his Denver Broncos jersey could easily be the best-selling piece of NFL apparel this year.
Although the Broncos haven’t said what number he’ll wear, Tebow jerseys are already selling for $79.99 (half the price of Tebow’s autograph) at NFLShop.com. And if there’s any doubt about how much demand there is for Tebow jerseys, consider that “Tim Tebow Broncos jersey” is currently the sixth most-searched term on Google.
No matter what kind of NFL player Tebow turns out to be, he’s already got an enormous fan base fom his college football career at Florida, and many of those fans would continue to support him no matter where he played in the NFL.
Now that those fans know which NFL team Tebow is playing for, they’re ready to wear their fandom on their backs.
