Busted: Feds seize $21 million in fake Super Bowl merchandise

With three days left before the Super Bowl, federal officials have confiscated 202,000 items of phony sports memorabilia worth more than $21.6 million. The massive takeover of the fraudulent goods is the result of a nationwide law enforcement effort aimed at cracking down on counterfeit sports merchandise. Many of the bogus items were related to the two Super Bowl participants, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, and over 163 websites were shut down in connection with selling the fake goods.
