Agents also seized 477 counterfeit Duracell batteries and counterfeit NASCAR and John Deere merchandise.

Although most of the seized items were purporting to be NFL merchandise, also seized were counterfeit items with the trademarks of Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association.
