Topps has reached an autograph deal with former Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston.
Winston, expected to be among the first players picked in this year’s NFL Draft, will be featured throughout all of the company’s 2015 products. His first cards will appear in 2015 Bowman Football, which releases in June.
The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner was a standout at Florida State, but has been dogged by questions about his character.
“We are excited to add a player of Jameis Winston’s caliber to the Topps family,” Topps Football Brand Manager Kevin Eger said. “Winston is an electrifying player and collectors always look forward to a player’s first Topps Rookie Card. Winston will lead a thrilling 2015 rookie class, and we look forward to working with him in our 60th year of football cards.”
Winston earned a number of awards throughout his college career including 2013 AP Player of the Year honors, and won the 2014 BCS National Championship. He also won the Walter Camp Award, Manning Award and Archie Griffin Award in 2013.
