Tim Tebow Autograph? That’ll Be $160

The Associated Press

We may not know which team Tim Tebow will suit up for in 2010, however, we do know people want his autograph and they’ll pay handsomely for it.

The former Florida quarterback appeared Saturday at Palm Beach Autographs, and according to the Florida Times-Union, an estimated crowd of 1,500 people were in attendance to pay $160 for a Tebow autograph.

A portion of the proceeds will reportedly go to the Tim Tebow Foundation, the newspaper reports. Event attendees could also chip in $75 for photos with Tebow.

Tebow talked about his first official autograph signing:
“It’s an honor to have people want to want you and want to have your autograph and want to be around you. That’s special to have an opportunity to sign for people, but it’s more special to be able to do things like we’re doing and being able to really just brighten kids’ days in really their darkest hour of need, which is a lot of what my foundation is about. … I’m just so excited that I have the opportunity to do this and just make a difference in kids’ lives.”

Prior to his autograph signing on Saturday, Tebow had a busy Friday at Jacksonville’s Brooks Rehabilitation Center visiting with Alex Ross, a 16-year-old who was shot by another teen in January.
