Trevor Story‘s impressive start this season has a new chapter to come when it comes to autographs and memorabilia.
The Colorado Rockies shortstop is now an exclusive Topps Authentics player.
“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 part of the deal, his autographed baseballs, jerseys, bats and oversized cards will only be found on Topps.com.
“Topps is a great partner to capture the excitement of Trevor’s historic start to his Major League career,” said Mike Neligan, Vice President at Excel Sports Management, Story’s agency. “He is excited to work with such an established brand and to share his success with his fans.”
He hit seven home runs in his first eight games en route to NL Player of the Week honors. He’s hitting .309 with 14 RBI and 13 runs this season — enough to join an Authentics roster that also includes Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Luis Severino and Kenta Maeda to name a few.
