Telfair Signs Baseballs for Topps
On the heels of announcing an autograph deal with NYC high school basketball
star Sebastian Telfair, Topps announces that it is set to issue his first signed
But, its not a basketball card!
Telfair has signed and dated 100 Major League Baseballs, which will be sold
exclusively at www.ThePit.com
starting May 31st. Each ball, which carries a $49 SRP, will include a Topps
3M authentication sticker and be encased in a clear ball holder with a tamper
Telfair will also appear on packaging and will sign for several of the companys
autograph trading card programs, which will be inserted into packs of 2004-05
Topps Basketball products. The first Topps product to feature autographed
Telfair cards will be 2004-05 Topps Basketball, which ships this August.
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.
