Topps Inks Deal with Sebastian Telfair
Topps announces that New York City High School Basketball Sensation Sebastian
Telfair has signed with the company to appear on packaging and to autograph
trading cards, which will be inserted into packs of 2004-05 Topps Basketball
Telfair, who recently announced he would be entering the upcoming NBA Draft, is
considered one of the best prep point guards ever. Because his cousin, Stephon
Marbury, has been touting him for years, his name became legendary in basketball
circles well before his days at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn.
The first Topps product to feature autographed Telfair cards will be 2004-05
Topps Basketball, which ships this August.
