Steiner Sports landed its second elite athlete to an exclusive autograph contract Tuesday when they announced a deal with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The signing comes after last week’s news that the company had landed Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.
Both Rodgers and Curry had agreements with Fanatics that had expired. Rodgers’ deal was signed in October of 2015.
There’s no word on how much Rodgers or Curry will be paid as part of their arrangements to sign memorabilia for the company and the new deals are not expected to affect their trading card autograph deals.
Getting Rodgers and Curry would count as a major coup for Steiner, which also signed young Yankees star Didi Gregorious earlier this month. Steiner’s other NFL exclusives include Archie and Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., Ottis Anderson, Victor Cruz and former college coach Lou Holtz.
The full product line of the “Rodgers Collection” offered by Steiner will include: hand-signed official footballs, jerseys and helmets, limited-edition pieces. And autographed photographs of historic moments. The company has already conducted a signing with Rodgers and items are available here.
A first round pick by the Packers in the 2005 NFL Draft after a standout college career at California, Rodgers led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XLV when he was crowned MVP, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chico, California native is a two-time league MVP (2011, 2014), and six-time Pro Bowl selection.
