Eli Manning has taken the phrase “hard to let go” to new heights. Manning is allegedly apart of the New York Giant’s scheme to sell fake game-used memorabilia because he didnt want to part with the originals, the New York Post reported.
According to court documents, Manning sent an email to equipment manager Joe Skiba that read, “2 helmets that can pass as game used.” Another email featured Skiba telling the plaintiff that Manning created fake memorabilia because he “didn’t want to give up the real stuff.”
Giant’s spokespersom issued an official statement:
Manning, Skiba and the Giants were among those named specifically in the lawsuit from memorabilia collectors.
Manning and the Giants were sued over these allegations in 2014. It is rumored that one fake game-used helmet of Manning’s is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
LOL. Wow. Who knew it was that serious?
How pissed would you be if you spent bread on fake sports memorabilia that turned out to be fake?
