There’s money to be made if you’re in the business of selling Super Bowl champion New York Giants memorabilia. The G-Men were in danger of not making the playoffs late in the year, but we all know how things turned out. The team’s huge fan base includes a lot of memorabilia collectors and fans who just buy stuff when the Yankees, Giants or other New York team wins a title.
Steiner Sports has been holding autograph sessions with all of the players, trying to fill up commemorative helmets they ordered well ahead of time, as well as pictures and other items. It’ll all be for sale soon. Some of it already is, actually, on Amazon.com.

The players take part of their day to add their signature to a variety of items that the team will present to fans on special giveaway nights and to charities that seek items to auction off or give away. Others, no doubt, will be handed over to important friends of the franchise.
