A trial has been delayed in a lawsuit accusing New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning of selling bogus "game-worn" equipment to unsuspecting collectors.

Jury selection was to have begun this week, but a death in the family of one of the attorneys pushed that back to next Monday.

Three plaintiffs say they bought two of the allegedly fraudulent helmets from Steiner Sports, which has a contract with Manning to provide the game-used equipment. They claim they will provide evidence that Manning and the Giants' equipment staff have been defrauding collectors for years.

In court filings, Manning and the team have denied the allegations and have characterized the lead plaintiff as a scam artist who has sold bogus memorabilia himself over the years.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin in New Jersey in a lawsuit accusing the New York Giants and quarterback Eli Manning of knowingly selling bogus "game-worn" equipment to unsuspecting collectors.

It's set to get underway Monday in Bergen County.

Eric Inselberg and two other plaintiffs say they bought two helmets from Steiner Sports, which has a contract with Manning to provide game-used jerseys and helmets for sale.

Inselberg says the helmets weren't game-used, and that emails show Manning engaged in a pattern of deceiving collectors.

In court filings, Manning and the team have denied the allegations and have characterized Inselberg as a scam artist who sold fake memorabilia himself over a span of several years.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs, the Giants and Manning didn't return messages seeking comment Sunday night.
