"Tim was the most coveted player coming out of the NFL draft in at least a decade," said Steve Dodson, owner of Palm Beach Autographs.
Part of that demand was due to the fact that he would clearly make a mint off Florida Gators fans needing to get their items signed. And boy did they come with Tebow charging $160 for an autograph and $75 for a photo with him.
Dodson said that about 80 percent of the sales last year were Gators-related, while 20 percent of the sales featured Tebow's autographs on Broncos items.
Palm Beach Autographs didn't know what to expect when it renewed Tebow for a second year, but Dodson said he had confidence that he would make his mark on the NFL. Since being named the starter, Tebow is now 7-1 and is incredible fourth quarter comebacks have the Broncos in a position to the make the playoffs.
When Tebow did a signing yesterday, as he does once a month, all items were sold out a week before and the prices have understandably gone up. Of the few items that are available, Tebow autographed Broncos photos now sell for $250.
