Tim Tebow: The ten crappiest pieces of Chosen One merch on Craigslist
Whoever thought it would be awesome to paint a $300 portrait of Mickey Mouse as Tim Tebow is only slightly less credible than the person who will buy that painting. One step above them is the Disney lawyer who will ask that the painting be destroyed, but way (way) above them is the football god himself. The man's name is in almost every commercial, talk show, news report and even Craiglist ad in the mediasphere. So we thought we'd save you some time finding it. Below are the ten crappiest (and probably most illegal) pieces of Tebow merch on Craigslist.
To make our search easiest, we focused on only the items available on Craigslist in Tebow's football home. Unfortunately, this excludes that person who tried to sell envelopes postmarked the day Tebow was born and modeling opportunities for you to have your nude body painted like his jersey.
10. Hideous stuffed candycanes
Craigslist users will invoke the holy name of Tebow to sell literally anything. (I'm pretty sure this purple office chair has nothing to do with our football star.) Elsewhere on the site, the quarterback comes into play with someone in Federal Heights' attempt to sell "Chinese silver pandas." At $749, this Tebow time sale is not a very good deal. And there's more than one.
9. Jews for Tebow merch
Even if Jesus really isn't your thing, Tebow still can be. Case in point: Buy this T-shirt and you can celebrate both Judaism and Tebowism. And if you're broligious, there's a shirt for you, too.
8. Handmade Tebow baby sweater
For all the tiny Tebow tots out there, this person has created not one but two miniature hipster sweaters for his shorter fans. At $60, they're both stylish and handy when the snow outside is taller than your child.
7. Ridiculous Tebow oil painting (for $4,500)
For more than a lot of used cars, you can purchase this one-of-a-kind and strangely small portrait of Tebow in his pre-Heisman days. If you like your sports art more abstract, try this one. Or maybe this portrait of Mickey Mouse as Tebow. Or this sketch of him having an aneurysm. If you like it enormous, there's always this 6-foot-tall version.
6. Tebow earrings
The first thing we wondered when Tebowdom hit the pinnacle of media hype was: Sure, that dude is cool, but how can I get him on my face? How can I carry a tiny piece of him around with me on my body at all times? After turning down a few creepier options, we found these earrings, which can be purchased by giving someone in Frisco, Texas $4.
