The New York Post reports today on an update in Clinton Brook & Peed’s continuing litigation with the New York Football Giants and other parties involving fraudulent memorabilia:

“Brian Brook, lawyer for the plaintiff in the suit — former memorabilia curator Eric Inselberg — says the hall’s apparent double talk bolsters his case. ‘This is essentially an admission that fraud occurred,’ Brook said.”
“The Pro Football Hall of Fame appears to be trying a misdirection play over Eli Manning’s Super Bowl helmet. A spokesman for the Canton, Ohio, museum has publicly denied claiming an Eli Manning helmet on display was from Super Bowl XLII — but that denial is contradicted by the hall’s own Web site. The site says the helmet and another game artifact ‘worn by New York Giants’ teammates Eli Manning and David Tyree in their team’s win over the New England Patriots arrived at the Hall of Fame in March 2009.’ That description of the helmet contradicts a statement made by Hall of Fame Vice President John Horrigan to NJ.com on Friday, when he said the helmet has been ‘displayed only as Eli Manning’s helmet,’ not a Super Bowl artifact.”
