The Topps Co. has added a high-profile hurler to its Topps Authentics lineup. Topps has reached an exclusive memorabilia deal with New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino.
Severino’s autographed memorabilia will be sold exclusively through Topps Authentics, which will include baseballs, jerseys, oversized cards and more.
“I’m very excited to start this new venture with Topps,” said New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino. “I have been working with them since my first year in the minors and their products are always exciting and top of the line.”
Severino gained high praise during his rookie season in 2015. He made his Major League Baseball debut with the Yankees, where he went 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 11 starts. He struck out 56 batters in 62.1 innings. Baseball America had ranked Severino the No. 1 Yankees prospect following the 2014 season.
“We are excited to have a player of Luis’ caliber join the Topps Authentics program,” said David Leiner, VP & General Manager of North American Sports and Entertainment for Topps. “He’s a great, young player with a high ceiling. He’s the type of player – on and off the field – that we love to work with.”
The Topps Authentics catalog features signed memorabilia and unique oversized cards that cannot be found anywhere else. Severino joins Houston Astros shortstop and American League Rookie of the Year Carlos Correa in the Topps Authentics lineup.
Look for Severino’s autographed items to be offered through Topps in the coming weeks.
