Tim Tebow Selling Autographed Baseballs And Bats Is The Very Definition Of ‘Fake It Till You Make It’

How much would you pay for an autographed ball from a .494 Major League high school hitter?  Keep in mind this dude was All-State back when Bush was President and hasn’t struck out once in the Big Leagues. I’d probably spend $18, not because I think it’s worth that little, but because I’m still waiting on my next paycheck.

Unfortunately, it looks like I’m going to have to start a GoFundMe to have a shot at buying one of MLB hopeful Tim Tebow’s signed balls and bats, going for $125 and $175, respectively.

Genius move by Tebow here, taking a page out of O.J. Simpson’s book when he was signing autographs in prison to pay his defense team. Tebow is likely taking a hit money-wise to follow his dream, and spending a few hours to pocket $10,000 at the expense of suckers who think he’s Jesus is just mint leveraging.

Tebow has already gotten his fare share of backlash from MLB players and sportswriters for his lofty dream, but there are many who are coming out of the woodwork to vouch for Tebow’s talents firsthand. Kyle Finney, an assistant coach on Memphis University’s baseball team, claims that back in 2014, Tebow casually hit 12 homers in 15 swings while taking batting practice at a Memphis high school. Chad Moeller, former Major League catcher who Tebow’s been training with for the past two months released the following endorsement:

“I truly believe Tim has the skill set and potential to achieve his goal of playing in the Major Leagues, and based on what I have seen over the past two months, it could happen relatively quickly.”

Granted, both the criticism and endorsements are nothing more than speculation at this point, so until he tests his talents against the best, scouts will be study his mechanics through snapchats like the following…

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
