Topps Authentics has itself an Atlanta Brave.
Third baseman Hector Olivera was revealed as the next player who has signed an exclusive deal with Topps’ memorabilia division. His signed jerseys, balls, bats, oversized Chrome cards and more will only be found on Topps.com as part of the deal.
“I am so happy to be working with Topps,” Olivera said in a prepared release. “I’m honored that they wanted me to part of the Topps family. It’s a great opportunity and I look forward to seeing the excitement on baseball fans’ faces.”
The 30-year-old from Cuba hit .253 with two homers and 11 RBI in 24 games as a rookie last season with the Braves. In 11 international campaigns, he hit .323 with 96 homers and 435 RBI.
“Adding Olivera to our exclusive lineup strengthens the Topps Authentics brand and allows us to offer great products to baseball fans,” said David Leiner, Topps’ Vice President and General Manager of North America Sports & Entertainment. “I’m excited for Olivera to grow with us.”
