Kenta Maeda autographs will be available in 2016 Topps baseball card products after the 27-year-old Japanese rookie signed a contract with the company.
Maeda’s first autographs will appear in 2016 Topps Legacies of Baseball, which is scheduled to come out on March 30. He will also appear in the upcoming 2016 Bowman Baseball where he will have an autograph and in Gypsy Queen, Museum Collection, Tier One, Tribute and other sets.
Maeda, who will turn 28 in April, spent eight years playing in Japan where he compiled a 97-67 record with a 2.39 ERA. The Dodgers signed him to an eight-year deal in the offseason.
He will likely make his official big league debut April 6 at San Diego.
