Tebow jersey sales will be hot
By Bill Williamson
According to Tim Kellond, who runs the Broncos’ team store at Invesco Field at Mile High, a large shipment of men’s and women’s Tim Tebow No. 15 jerseys will arrive sometime Wednesday afternoon. They will immediately go on sale for $80. Kellond is expecting a brisk business.
“The demand has been unbelievable,” said Kellond, who got bombarded with requests for the jersey Friday, hours after Denver took the Florida quarterback with the No. 25 pick in the draft.
“We have never had this type of immediate demand for a jersey since I’ve been [working here], and I’ve been here since 2000. There's excitement about Tim Tebow in Denver. I expect to sell many jerseys.”
By the way, the remaining Brandon Marshall No. 15 jerseys have been reduced to $19.99, Kellond said. Marshall was traded to Miami earlier this month.
Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars are reporting brisk ticket sales for their season opener when Tebow and the Broncos come to town. Tebow is from Jacksonville.
