Topps Signs Cleveland Indians Shortstop Francisco Lindor to Exclusive Topps Authentics℠ Deal
One of the top shortstops in Major League Baseball is joining the Topps Authentics℠ roster in an exclusive multi-year deal.
Francisco Lindor is the latest rising star to sign with Topps Authentics. Topps will offer signed memorabilia of jerseys, balls, bats, and oversized Chrome® Rookie Cards on Topps.com.
“I’m excited to sign with Topps,” said the 22-year-old Lindor. “They have been with me since the beginning of my career and I’m pumped to take this next step with them.”
Lindor is one of the top players in MLB. He finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2015 after an impressive season. In 99 games, he hit .313 with 12 home runs and 51 RBI.
The Cleveland Indians 2011 first-round pick is one of the youngest players in the league, and also one the most popular future stars.
“Francisco is a great, young talent who fits perfectly within our Topps Authentics lineup,” said David Leiner, Topps Vice President and General Manager of North American Sports & Entertainment. “We are proud to be working with him on Topps Authentics to bring baseball fans closer to the game.”
Lindor is part of a growing Topps Authentics lineup, joining Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino, Boston Red Sox pitcher Henry Owens, and Atlanta Braves third baseman Hector Olivera. Topps will have more great names to announce in the coming weeks.
