The Tebow craze has officially reached global proportions with the confiscation of several counterfeit Tebow Jerseys from China.
Last week, U.S. Customs & Border Protection in Tampa seized $8,175 in counterfeit sports jerseys arriving from China and destined for Tampa Bay flea markets, [U.S. Customs & Border Protection spokesman Daniel] Keefe said.
