Memorabilia Fraud Case of Giants QB Eli Manning Heading to Court Soon

  • Eli Manning’s memorabilia fraud case will not be going away anytime soon

A New Jersey court judge ruled that memorabilia fraud claims levied against New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will go to trial, ESPN's Darren Rovell reported Thursday.

The trial date is unknown but it could potentially interrupt the Giants' 2018 season, one that will also have Manning under a close microscope on the field as the 37-year-old enters his 15th season in the National Football League following an embarrassing 3-13 season. Instead of just using genuinely game-worn apparel, they allegedly thought it made more sense to get a dry cleaner to simulate the wear-and-tear.

A lawsuit was filed against Manning, claiming that he, in conjunction with the Giants, fraudulently sold fake game-used memorabilia. In April 2017, a court filing contained emails in which Manning appeared to ask Skiba for "2 helmets that can pass as game used". He also guaranteed to memorabilia dealer Steiner Sports that the equipment he was supplying to them was legitimate, even going as far to sign one of the fugazi helmets "game used".

Blues boss Conte claimed he understood Morata's outburst, but said he was ultimately happy with the striker's performance. However, Burnley drew level when Johann Berg Gudmundsson's low drive went in off Burnley striker Ashley Barnes .


However, Manning did have to turn down very lucrative opportunities. However, the case was dropped after he provided evidence that Giants employees had misrepresented their relationship with him to a grand jury, and he subsequently took the team to court for fraud and conspiracy.

Manning has denied any knowledge of wrongdoing in the case, but his motion to waive the claim of consumer fraud was denied, according to the report. Manning and Steiner Sports, however, are set to defend themselves against fraud claims, as well as accusations of negligent misrepresentation, in front of a jury.
