(Newser) – It's been less than 24 hours since the Broncos selected Tim Tebow, and we're not even positive what his number will be yet, but you can already buy his jersey for $80 at—and we're willing to bet a lot of Denver fans are going to do it. The hype surrounding the surprise first-round pick is Mile High. Woody Paige of the Denver Post is already crowning him the “Quarterback of the Future,” comparing him to no less than John Elway.

Pretty much every commentator agrees that Josh McDaniels took a big risk by taking Tebow, but apparently he wasn't the only one willing to do so. The Broncos traded up to get Tebow because they knew Buffalo wanted him, too, Yahoo! Sports reports. So go ahead and buy a jersey—or, if you're rich, here's a collectible for you: the actual postcard announcing the pick. The lucky kid who wound up with it says he'll sell for “a million dollars. Seriously. $1 million.”
