Three of pro football’s all-time greats have signed exclusive, multi-year autograph deals with Fanatics.
Joe Montana, his former San Francisco 49ers teammate Jerry Rice and recently elected Hall of Famer Charles Woodson will join a roster of current and former stars housed under the company’s memorabilia and collectibles division, Fanatics Authentic.
Fanatics will now become the sole distributor of the players’ autographed memorabilia and collectibles.
“I’m really looking forward to what this partnership will mean for the fans,” Woodson stated. “I was overwhelmed when my name was called to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this summer, and this was the perfect time for me to team up with Fanatics and bring the fans incredible memorabilia products.”
Woodson has already signed footballs, jerseys, helmets and photos for the company, representing his University of Michigan careers along with items from his time with the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers, where he helped the Packers to a Super Bowl victory.
“To welcome three Pro Football Hall of Fame members and some of the most accomplished players in the history of the game is incredibly exciting,” said Fanatics executive vice president Victor Shaffer. “These legends have built extremely loyal fanbases throughout their careers, and it will be great to now provide an expanded assortment of memorabilia products including new releases the market has never seen.”
Athletes who have signing deals with Fanatics include Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Marshawn Lynch, Zion Williamson, Aaron Judge, Pete Alonso, Sabrina Ionescu, Joe Burrow, Chase Young, Alexander Ovechkin and others.
Items are being sold through Fanatics web properties including its collectibles arm, SportsMemorabilia.com.
