Teblowing your Money

Panini sends out these press releases to us blogger and others. Today Panini is showing off the Teblow Cards.

This is the regular

And this is the SP

People are going to be paying many many dollars for the SP for no apparent reason. Teblow is a marginal prospect at best, yet as with every year people are going to blow money on a guy that is already topped out. Teblow SP's will probably sell for $20-$40 upon release, maybe more. Here is a secret, that SP will be selling for $10-15 in 6 months.

Let me give you an example of how to "invest". Back in 90-91 I bought up every 83, 84 Cal Ripken Jr. card I could find. I was paying anywhere between $2-$5 for these things. Then during the season ripken shot up and I was selling them for $15-$25.

Here is how not to prospect: You spend $1000 on wax hoping to get a $500 card. Pay $300 for Sanchez SP authentic RPA's hoping he does really well so you can sell them for $325 6 months later.

I honestly hope the guy does do well. I hope any athlete who tries to succeed in the top 1% of his or her chosen sport does well. They work their whole lives towards one goal and I hope they achieve that.

It will be fun to watch the people who disagree with Tebow's ideological and spiritual beliefs try to demean his talent.

The only thing that diffuses the rhetoric is indifference.

Let the bullsh*t go.

Ruh-Roh fella we've got ourselves an internet tough guy that likes to call people "gay". That's his insult and perhaps on southern playgrounds that makes people so angry they can spit. Well done, flex those keyboard muscles.

Anyway, Teblow will not be a factor in the NFL, simple as that. If people want to overpay for his cards, tht is their concern


I don't think I have ever attacked his faith other than saying its a bit over the top. Everyone knows my favorite player is Kurt Warner and well his is over the top too, but thats his personal business.

Yes, but with the Tebow cards you get an added dose of self-rightous bigotry.

Tebow will join the list of other great College QBs who won the Heisman trophy and had success in the NFL: Andre Ware, Ty Detmer, Gino Torretta, Charlie Ward, Dannny Aweurffel, Chris Wienke, Eric Crouch, Jason White and Troy Smith.

See Tunguska, college football greatness does not equal NFL greatness, no matter how much you pray to the cosmis zombie magician, Jesus. All the above QBs had "talent" that didn't translate to the NFL, just like Osama bin Tebow.

Of course, Tim won't be able to shower with all the other players - the sight of naked men may lead him to homosexual temptation, which is a one way ticket to hell. That and not blowing up abortion clinics.

Oh no, you're making fun of little Timmy. Don't you know he's like the second coming of, er, um, Kordell Stewart or something? Please leave little Timmy alone. He's gonna make it big. I mean, look what he did to Alabama's defense in the SEC Title Game!
