Eli Manning may have been involved in a scheme to sell fake game-worn New York Giants gear.
According to court papers obtained by the New York Post, Manning sent an email to the Giants' equipment manager asking for "helmets that can pass as game used."
Manning turned over the email last week in connection with a civil racketeering suit that connects him, his team, and others within the organization of fleecing sports memorabilia collectors of authentic uniforms worn on the playing field.
The e-mail records handed over by Manning also include an exchange with his marketing agent Alan Zucker. In the email, Zucker is captured requesting two game-used jerseys and two game-used helmets.
