Tim Tebow Rumors: Former QB Already Selling Autographed Baseball Memorabilia [VIDEO]
Tim Tebow's MLB career may never get off the ground, but the machine behind the former quarterback doesn't stop.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner's NFL career flamed out, his last stint coming with the Eagles last year. Philadelphia cut Tebow last September in what was to this date his last chance to resurrect his NFL career.
Now, Tebow is focusing on making it in the baseball realm and has plans to pursue an MLB career. Though he has barely started his attempt to make it in baseball, he's already selling autographed baseball memorabilia.
Tebow is selling autographed baseballs and bats through TD Autographs and charging $125 for the balls and $175 for the bats, according to SI.com.
Though he hasn't played baseball since his junior year of high school, Tebow's agent revealed last week that he is planning on holding a workout for all 30 MLB teams later this month in hopes to work his way through the minor leagues and eventually up into the MLB. Tebow owned a .494 batting average in high school.
The former quarterback had a promising college football career, which included a Heisman Trophy win in 2007. In the NFL, he had runs with the Broncos, Jets, Patriots and Eagles, but after Philadelphia cut him last September prior to the season starting, the NFL well ran dry on him.
Tebow, who turns 29 on Aug. 14, owns a 47.9 career completion percentage and has thrown for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 35 games -- 16 of which were starts.
His attempts to make it in baseball have been met with mixed reviews, with many people seeing it as a publicity stunt. While former MLB catcher Chad Moeller has supported him and is training with the ex-quarterback, former big league pitcher Curt Schilling sounded off on him.
"There is absolutely no chance that he would ever set foot on a big-league diamond to play in a big-league baseball game in the regular season," Schilling told Yahoo Sports' "Stew Pod.." "Here's the thing you have to understand beyond all else.. Baseball and professional sports is a business. A multibillion-dollar business. So if you can play, I don't care if you're a pagan, you're gonna play."
