TRISTAR has a new ace.
The Houston-based autograph and memorabilia company revealed its newest exclusive player on Monday night and it’s Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander.
He’s not been a big signer for companies — or for certified autograph cards — in some time. The last time he had any substantial volume of signed cards was in 2012 and those cards were mostly still low-volume. You have to go back to 2007 when roughly a third of his certified autograph cards were made to find a decent amount of cardboard.
All that, combined with a dominating run to a World Series, drew him to TRISTAR’s stable to help satisfy the growing demand for his ink.
