New York Mets rookie Pete Alonso has signed an autograph deal with Fanatics. The multi-year deal was announced Tuesday. Alonso will join its roster of athletes housed under the company’s memorabilia division, Fanatics Authentic.
Fanatics will become the exclusive distributor of Alonso’s autographs and collectibles including signed bats, balls, jerseys, photos and other items with prices starting at $79.99. “I’m thrilled to enter this partnership and join their exclusive athlete roster,” Alonso said of his decision to sign with Fanatics.
Recently named April’s National League Rookie of the Month, Alonso currently leads all MLB rookies in home runs and RBI since the start of the season and ranks among the top five NL players in home runs as well. Alonso joins other Fanatics exclusive athletes including Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Kris Bryant, Joel Embiid, Klay Thompson, Luka Doncic, Jared Goff and Peyton Manning. He called the first few months of his MLB career “an amazing experience.”
“Pete has taken the league by storm since the start of the season, and he’s quickly established himself as one of the exuberant young talents in the game,” said Fanatics Authentic executive vice president Victor Shaffer. “He’s built a close connection to Mets fans in New York City and beyond, and we’re excited to now offer a wide selection of his officially licensed products.”
Alonso recently signed a variety of items that are now posted on the Fanatics website.
The deal doesn’t impact autographs inside Topps trading card products.
