Topps has announced a one-year exclusive autograph trading card agreement with Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Yasiel Puig. The 23-year-old Cuban stalwart has amassed 30 home runs to go along with an impressive slash line of .318/.399/.533 through the first 174 games in his young career. He joins fellow young NL All-Star, Bryce Harper, as an exclusive signer with The Topps Company.
When asked about what this agreement meant to him, Puig stated that “joining the Topps family is yet another dream come true for me. It’s exciting to be pictured on a baseball card and to be part of such a long-standing American tradition.”
Puig has rapidly grown into one of the most popular figures in Major League Baseball, evidenced by his league-lead in All-Star votes. He’s also become one of the most sought after names in the baseball trading-card community.
