The trial in which Giants quarterback Eli Manning is accused of memorabilia fraud gets underway today. A few sports collectors are suing the Super Bowl winning quarterback and the Giants staff, claiming they paid thousands for game-used Eli Manning helmets that were never used in a game. Court documents show Manning emailed the Giants equipment manager for helmets that could "pass as game used," but the Giants contest the e-mail is taken out of context.
The lawyer for three Giants fans says he is requesting Eli Manning testify at what he expects to be a long trial.
