Sports collector claims Eli Manning and Giants forged “game-worn” memorabilia

Eric Inselberg has filed a lawsuit against Manning and the team for damages

After throwing 27 interceptions and finishing just 7-9, it’s safe to say that the 2013 NFL season is one that quarterback Eli Manning and the New York Giants would like to forget. However, the bad tidings will still continue even after the Giants’ elimination, thanks to a new lawsuit against the team and its quarterback in Bergen County (N.J.) Superior Court.

Sports memorabilia collector Eric Inselberg filed his suit on Jan. 29 alleging that Manning and team officials produced and sold “game-worn” helmets and jerseys that had never seen action. Among the items he says the Giants forged are a helmet Manning wore during the Giants’ 2008 Super Bowl victory and a helmet Manning wore during his 2004 rookie season.
