Peyton Manning Sues Memorabilia Dealer

February 28, 2002

NEW YORK (AP) _ Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning sued a Staten Island sports memorabilia dealer for fraud and breach of contract.

Manning, 25, said in court papers that Michael Bertolini and his Triumph Sports Memorabilia & Promotions Inc. owe him $105,000 for autographing 2,500 items, including footballs, helmets and jerseys.

Manning’s agent, IMG, and Triumph contracted in July 2000 for Bertolini to pay Manning $112,500 to sign the items. Manning said he’s been paid only $7,500, according to court papers

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Manhattan’s State Supreme Court, asks the court to direct Bertolini to pay the $105,000 balance and to order an accounting of Triumph’s sales of the merchandise signed by Manning.

Bertolini, reached Thursday at Triumph, said he had no comment.
