Puig Signs Topps Autograph Exclusive

Rival trading card companies will have to wait their turn to get more Yasiel Puig autographs inside their packs. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ slugging sensation has signed a one-year exclusive autograph trading card agreement with Topps

Yasiel Puig Bowman Chrome SuperfractorThrough 174 games, the 23-year-old Cuban stalwart had hit 30 homers with a .318 average.

He joins fellow young NL All-Star, Bryce Harper, as an exclusive signer for Topps.

After exploding onto the scene early last season, Puig went from having only a few trading cards under the Leaf brand from his time with the Cuban national team to more than 900 in all, according to Beckett’s online data. His autographs appear on over 200 different issues.  Leaf was the first company to get Puig’s autograph on trading card products but Topps owns the MLB licensing package.

“Joining the Topps family is yet another dream come true for me,” Puig said via a Topps news release.  “It’s exciting to be pictured on a baseball card and to be part of such a long-standing American tradition.”

Puig has rapidly grown into one of the most popular figures in Major League Baseball, evidenced by his league lead in All-Star balloting.
