Ben Simmons has a new team besides the Philadelphia 76ers.
The No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft out of LSU has joined Upper Deck as an exclusive signer for both trading cards and memorabilia.
Terms of the deal were not announced, but it was called a multi-year agreement by the company and his first autographed card appearance will appear in 2016 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions.
“We are pleased to welcome Ben Simmons to Upper Deck’s world-renowned roster of NBA greats and look forward to providing his fans around the world with the most innovative and authentic collectibles available on the market,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck.
A pair of items were teased with the news — a print called “Renaissance Man” and a signed basketball — while draft-night photos and signed jerseys will also be available as part of the collection.
The items were not yet on the company’s store, but should be soon.
