In addition to its current distribution channels, Mounted Memories products will now be available through NBAStore.com, the NBA’s brick-and-mortar store in New York City and through various NBA team shops. Mounted Memories will provide newly manufactured collectible products including a full line of plaques, laser engraved display cases with team logos and hundreds of autographed items from past and present stars.
"We are enthusiastic about this new opportunity and thrilled to work with the NBA to provide their fans with a vast assortment of authentic autographed products," said Mitch Adelstein, president of Mounted Memories. Adelstein added that the products will range from autographed basketballs, photos and jerseys, framed photos and framed game-used items including jerseys, nets, and basketballs.
"Mounted Memories’ innovative designs are perfect for the fan looking to collect unique and authentic items directly from the game," said Lisa Goldberg, the NBA’s Senior Director of Trading Cards and Memorabilia.
Mounted Memories already has established relationships with Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association, the National Football League, NASCAR, Golden Bear/Jack Nicklaus, the estate of Mickey Mantle, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Legends Licensing/Marilyn Monroe, I Love Lucy/Desilu Too/CBS and many individual NASCAR teams.
