I hope Panini realizes that Tim Tebow might not even make the Patriots opening day roster. They would have been better off replacing Hernandez with Stevan Ridley.
Here are the details.
A representative with trading card and memorabilia company Panini confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday morning that the company painstakingly removed Hernandez stickers from 500,000 of its sticker books, which were already produced but had yet to hit the shelves.
The company has produced one million stickers of new Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow, who happened to play with Hernandez at the University of Florida, to fill the spot. The Tebow replacement stickers will be handed out at events or given to customers who received Hernandez in a pack and send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the company. The company is also allowing sticker collectors to download the Tebow sticker image from its website.
This is dumb, it is a sticker, they might have gotten one complaint about Hernandez, everyone else who didn’t want that sticker would have just thrown it in the trash.
Just wasting money for no reason.
