The two New York quarterbacks appear on the cover of the 2012 NFL Sticker Album, along with Rob Gronkowski, Calvin Johnson, Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers. That would be Eli Manning, and the backup quarterback for the Jets. Tebow appears in his #15 Jets uniform. Sorry, Mark Sanchez.
Oh well, Sanchez did get to be featured on the Topps packs last year, so it’s not like a Jets quarterback has never been placed on a cover undeservedly. I saw one at the store the other day at the checkout line, and my son asked whether that meant you had to get a Mark Sanchez card if you bought it. “Not necessarily,” I said. “Good,” he replied.
