So, I got stuck with a brand new #15 Tim Tebow jersey I bought last month. It's one of those "authentics" that had the sewn on numbers and nameplate. I bought it off of my cousin, who got it new but it was too big for his skinny body.
Don't bother. Unless you have easy access the Broncos style numbers and can get nameplates made for the cheap, it won't be worth your time or money.
I did some research and by the time you could acquire the four #8's you'd need (two big and two small) plus the Manning nameplate, and get someone to do all the sewing work for you (if you're a single guy like me and have a frustrating time sewing a button back onto a shirt), then the $50-$100 it would cost for all the shipping, materials, and labor is not worth it.
Not when Amazon.com is selling good quality "authentic" Manning Broncos jerseys new for $50.
Dammit. Oh well, I guess some kid in Africa is gonna have a sweet looking Tebow muumuu soon. Or, I could keep it and one day ask Kyle Orton sign it for a gag gift.
Maybe one of my friends from UF will want it.
