Remember the 2013 NFL offseason with this 2010 Tebow/Hernandez/Cooper football card

The 2013 NFL offseason has had enough insane storylines to keep The League on the front pages of sports sections all summer long. Tim Tebow's wanderings, Aaron Hernandez's court troubles, and now Riley Cooper's unwise words have covered the interminable months between that Super Bowl power outage and this weekend's Hall of Fame game kickoff. (Finally!)

Here's the amazing thing, though: in a perfect confluence of roster harmony, Tebow, Hernandez and Cooper all played together in the late '00s at Florida. CBS's Will Brinson and John Breech found a photo that covers it all:

Oh, but it gets better. As Sports Illustrated's Michael Rosenberg notes, all three appeared on the exact same Topps card three years ago, a "2010 Topps Prime Third Quarter" composite. Check it out:

The card's currently going for around ten bucks on ebay. If you've got one, might want to sell it right now, while the market's hot. And hey, if you want to shoot us a finder's fee, we'll love ya forever.
