Former NY Yankee shortstop and legend Derek Jeter has signed a deal with Topps Company, based in New York, to a multi-year autograph trading card deal.
Jeter played shortstop for the Yankees for 20 seasons and retired in 2014. He is the Yankees’ all-time hits leader with 3,465 and sixth overall in baseball history.
Jeter’s autographs return to Topps products for the first time in over a decade. The addition of the former Yankees captain, one of the greatest players of his generation, will elevate future Topps releases even further.
Jeter’s first autographed cards will appear next month in 2016 Topps Dynasty Baseball and 2016 Topps Baseball Transcendent Collection. He will also be featured in 2017 Topps products, starting with 2017 Topps Baseball Series 1, available February 1, 2017, and 2016 Topps Tribute Baseball.
To celebrate Jeter’s return to Topps, all fans accessing the Topps BUNT digital trading card app this week, will receive an exclusive digital version of Jeter’s iconic 1993 Topps rookie card. Exclusive new digital designs featuring Jeter will debut in Topps BUNT starting Friday, November 25.
Jeter won five World Series titles with the Yankees, earned the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 1996, and won MLB All-Star Game MVP and World Series MVP in 2000.
“Adding Derek Jeter autographs to our trading card products will be thrilling for collectors,”
