Fanatics has announced an exclusive collectibles and memorabilia partnership with 2016 World Series champion and 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta.
Fanatics Authentic, the company’s memorabilia division, will be the sole distributor of authentic Arrieta memorabilia, giving MLB and Chicago Cubs fans alike the chance to own rare pieces of historic signed and game-used collectibles across the Fanatics platform, including MLBShop.com and Fanatics.com.
“Fanatics is the industry leader for licensed sports memorabilia, and I knew they would be the perfect partner for me,” Arrieta said. “It’s great to get back to work at training camp and to see the fans come out and welcome us as champions – it should be another exciting season.”
The partnership marks Arrieta’s first-ever exclusive autograph and collectibles deal, giving fans the opportunity to commemorate his career through several one-of-a-kind items, including game-used pieces from the World Series.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Jake for his first-ever memorabilia deal and add him to Fanatics’ star-studded athlete roster, right alongside several of his Cubs teammates and some of the most decorated champions around the world,” said Ross Tannenbaum, president of Fanatics Authentic. “Fans will now have even more ways to commemorate the Cubs’ historic title and Jake’s stellar achievements over the past few years.”
Arrieta’s autographed memorabilia is now available at Fanatics.com and MLBShop.com.
