Colorado Rockies rookie sensation Trevor Story has signed an exclusive autograph deal with Topps.
Story has been one of the, well, big stories of the season so far. He made MLB history by becoming the first player ever to hit seven home runs in his first eight games. The 23-year-old shortstop won National League Player of the Week honors in the first week of the 2016 season.
“Trevor Story’s first week as a big leaguer was phenomenal,” said David Leiner, Topps Vice President and General Manager of North American Sports & Entertainment. “No one has done what he has done at this level. The excitement he brings to every game is something that can’t be matched. We are proud to have Trevor join our Topps Authentics lineup.”
As a rookie with a handful of MLB games under his belt, Story hasn’t had many signed items on the memorabilia market, but Topps is offerng Story signed items including baseballs, jerseys, bats and oversized cards on its website. The signings are witnessed by representatives from MLB Authenticators Inc.
Story is represented by Excel Sports Management, which negotiated the deal with Topps.
MLB players signing exclusively for Topps Authentics include Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Luis Severino, and Kenta Maeda.
