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. Among the jerseys: four of Evan Longoria, two of Carl Crawford and several of Tim Tebow.
Keefe told the Tribune that the Jerseys "were good quality [counterfeits], and they had the hologram that you're supposed to have on the official garment."
Tebow, the Broncos' rookie fourth-string quarterback, led the entire NFL in Jersey sales for the month of April.
