Giants’ Eli Manning at center of sports memorabilia scandal – Los Angeles Times

Eli Manning’s squeaky-clean image could take a hit after the New York Giants quarterback turned over an email in connection with a lawsuit accusing the organization and some of its members of taking part in a sports memorabilia scam.

In the April 2010 email to the Giants’ equipment manager, Manning asks for “helmets that can pass as game used.”

That and other related emails were included in a filing submitted Tuesday to New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. Manning turned over the emails last week, according to court documents. The New York Post was first to report on the emails.

Three memorabilia collectors are suing the Giants, Manning, team equipment manager Joe Skiba, memorabilia dealer Brandon Steiner and others, claiming they produced and sold items as game-used when they weren’t.
