Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has signed an exclusive autograph agreement Fanatics Authentic, giving the company the right to be the sole distributor of Rodgers memorabilia, including autographed and game-used items.
Rodgers, the 2014 NFL MVP, has led the Packers to a 5-0 start this season.
Rodgers will be signing photos, jerseys, footballs, Sports Illustrated magazines, special types of art prints and other memorabilia for the company. Several items have already been listed on the company’s website with prices starting at around $320.
“As a player that has shattered the NFL record books and still has a long career ahead, we’re really excited to bring Aaron into the Fanatics family and to offer his dedicated fans a one-of-a-kind selection of his memorabilia,” said Ross Tannenbaum, President of Fanatics Authentic.
The man Rodgers succeeded as quarterback of the Packers, Brett Favre, also signed a deal with Fanatics recently and the company has begun to put dual-signed items from both players in its inventory, something that may have seemed unlikely following the uncomfortable nature of Favre’s departure several years ago.
The arrangement doesn’t mean Rodgers won’t sign for trading card companies or give free autographs to fans when able. It does mean he’ll work only with Fanatics on private signings.
2015 NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, Boston Red Sox first baseman David Ortiz, and Denver Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning are among the other players exclusive to Fanatics.
