How would you like to own your very own Tim Tebow statue?
That's right, for the low, low price of $12,000, you too can have a bronzed Tebow breaking tackles in your living room.
The sculpture was made by artist Franco Castelluccio and measures 16H x 24W, which is pretty huge. While there are no definitive team markings on the statue, I believe it's from Tebow's Florida days. How do I know this? Well, the helmet stripe. Yeah, I know, random. The Denver Broncos, Tebow's current team, have a helmet stripe, but it doesn't go all the way to the front of the helmet and it's also pointed. The Florida helmet stripe goes from front to back and is raised similar to the one in the sculpture. Trust me, it took me like 10 minutes to figure this out.
So, for all you Tebow Gator fans out there, this one is for you.
Castelluccio seems to dabble in dancing figurines and the like, but every once in awhile he busts out a sports sculpture. He did a life-sized sculpture of former Giants receiver David Tyree making his famous helmet catch in the Super Bowl. He also did a really cool World Cup statue.
If $12,000 is too steep for you, Castelluccio's PR folks state the price can be lower if you don't need the statue bronzed.
And if you're the one who actually buys this, please be sure to drop us a line.
