Cole Hamels, the ace starting pitcher and MVP for the World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies, has signed an autograph deal with Mounted Memories through MAB Celebrity Sports.
As part of the deal, Hamels will appear on QVC network for a World Series special on Oct. 31, scheduled for airing between 8-11 p.m. EST, which will include a full line of 2008 World Series items for sale and a selection of autographed Hamels product.
Among the product offered is several framed game-used collectibles from the team’s victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
The deal also includes autographed baseballs, jerseys, bats, photographs and other memorabilia.
“We are thrilled to have Cole on the Mounted Memories roster of outstanding athletes,” said Mitch Adelstein, company president. “The World Series was so exciting this year, and Cole Hamels was an integral part of the Phillies’ success. We look forward to working with Cole to bring Phillies fans across the country memorabilia through the QVC World Series special.” Adelstein worked directly with MAB Celebrity Sports, the four-year old New Jersey- based show promoter and sports marketing agency.
