NJ memorabilia dealer sues Eli Manning and Giants

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- A sports memorabilia collector in New Jersey is accusing members of the NFL's New York Giants of engaging in a scam to sell fake ''game-worn'' equipment for profit.

Eric Inselberg of Short Hills filed suit in Bergen County Superior Court on Wednesday against quarterback Eli Manning, Giants owner John Mara and others for allegedly doctoring jerseys, helmets and other equipment to make it look as though they had been used during play.

Manning and the Giants issued statements saying the suit is without merit and they planned to fight it.

Inselberg was among a group of memorabilia dealers accused of selling counterfeit jerseys following an FBI sting.

The Justice Department case against Inselberg was dropped. He says in court papers he wants the Giants held accountable for the lies that led to his indictment and ruined his business.
