Manchester United captain and England star Wayne Rooney will have autographs in upcoming Topps soccer card sets the company announced on Wednesday.
They will be his first certified autographs produced by a card company based in the United States as he didn’t appear in past Upper Deck and Panini America releases. The cards will arrive in 2015 Topps Premier Gold, which arrives on Dec. 16.
“We are very excited to have a player of Wayne Rooney’s caliber sign for Topps,” said brand manager Zvee Geffen in a prepared release. “He has not signed many cards over the years and this continues to show Topps’s focus on creating the best products for soccer fans around the world.”
Rooney will be found in the Golden Boot Die-Cut autograph subset. He’s also slated to appear in upcoming Barclay’s Premier League releases — the next being 2016 Champions League Showcase.
Premier Gold will include 10 packs per box with an autograph or Relic in every pack. Click here to view the checklist.
