View Full Version : Embroiderer Hopes Tebow Jersey Idea Takes Off

Newly drafted quarterback Tim Tebow is already a hit for the Denver Broncos off the field. His number No. 15 jerseys are selling fast across the state.

But those jerseys can cost anywhere from $80 to $125, and with that in mind embroiderer Daniella Grieve decided to give a little boost to her business by selling Tebow jerseys at a much reduced rate.

How is she doing it? If thrifty fans bring her a Brandon Marshall Broncos jersey (he's the former No. 15) she'll sew on Tebow's name on top of Marshall's.

"It could turn into something big, and if not we have Tebow jerseys for our two little boys," Grieve told CBS4.

Broncos jerseys with Marshall's name on them are now going for less than $10 at some stores, including Sports Authority.

Lombardi Furniture and Embroidery is located at 5203 Marshall Street in Denver. Their phone number is (303) 421-6800.

Been posting this for years.

Never pitch your jersey. You can always recycle it.

I transformed a cheap Portis into a Bell, and am waiting for the next 26 to come along.

I'm sure the NFL is already working on a form "cease and desist" letter and it will be in the mail shortly.

Sadly your're probally correct. Goodell can't let any $ fall by the waistside.

My only gripe is that the Tebow name plate doesn't match the Broncos blue.

Spider would hit it if he were out of prison......

I think it is a good idea. Good effort to meet a need and help people in a pi$$ poor economy. What's not to like?

The font looks major fake, it's cool that people are trying to save money but the guy that gets screwed is Tim - no royalties on these.

Do players get specific royalties on their individual jerseys?

Last I read (few years back) the NFL gets 3% and the player gets 1%. That could have changed by now. But players do get a check.

He'll still make more than any other player just because of Florida alone.
