As a rookie with a handful of MLB games under his belt, Story hasn’t had many signed items on the memorabilia market, but Topps Authentics is changing that. The Topps Company is proud to announce an exclusive memorabilia deal that will get signed items including baseballs, jerseys, bats and oversized cards into the hands of baseball fans.
Story made MLB history by becoming the first player ever to hit seven home runs in his first eight games. The 23-year-old shortstop won National League Player of the Week honors in the first week of the 2016 season.
“Trevor Story’s first week as a big leaguer was phenomenal,” said David Leiner, Topps Vice President and General Manager of North American Sports & Entertainment. “No one has done what he has done at this level. The excitement he brings to every game is something that can’t be matched. We are proud to have Trevor join our Topps Authentics lineup.”
Topps Authentics brings MLB Authenticated items into the marketplace, eliminating the guesswork surrounding signed memorabilia. The signings are witnessed by representatives from MLB Authenticators Inc. Baseball fans can go to Topps.com to purchase Story’s pre-sale items of signed memorabilia.
“Topps is a great partner to capture the excitement of Trevor’s historic start to his Major League career,” said Mike Neligan, Vice President at Excel Sports Management, Story’s agency. “He is excited to work with such an established brand and to share his success with his fans.”
MLB players signing exclusively for Topps Authentics include Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Luis Severino, and Kenta Maeda.
