Fanatics is getting into the packaged memorabilia business with its Under Wraps autographed baseball product, due out next week.
The company, which has exclusive autograph deals with a number of well-known athletes including Steph Curry, Kris Bryant and Peyton Manning, has packaged over 2,000 autographed baseballs from several dozen past and present big leaguers for individual sale at $95-$100 with a grand prize incentive.
The pre-packaged balls come 12 per case and only 200 cases were produced. A checklist for Under Wraps is below. Among those on it are Hank Aaron, Nolan Ryan, Derek Jeter, Paul Goldschmidt, Carlos Correa and Bryant.
