Tim Tebow still has to prove he can win games as a starter in the NFL, but he has proven that he can move product as an author. (Or a co-author of an autiobiography, at least.)
Tebow’s book “Through My Eyes” debuted at No. 6 on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction bestseller list just behind Tina Fey’s book and the oral history of ESPN. (Both of those books have been out longer.)
Tebow scored well compared to recent football releases. Rex Ryan’s book started a No. 11 on the same list, Sean Payton’s book hit No. 8 last year, and Drew Brees started at No. 3. (Pete Carroll’s book “Win Forever” came in somewhere lower than all of the above.)
The sales for Tebow’s book were undoubtedly helped by insanely big book signings, like the one in a Gainesville WalMart pictured here from his management.
