NEW YORK - March 27, 2018 - PRLog -- Los Angeles Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani has signed an exclusive autographed memorabilia deal with Topps Authentics™, the memorabilia arm of The Topps Company, giving baseball fans worldwide a chance to own Ohtani-signed baseballs, jerseys and bats, Topps announced today.

Ohtani's Topps Authentics autographed memorabilia is available on Topps.com, the exclusive home for his authenticated autographed memorabilia.

"We are excited to add Shohei Ohtani to our Topps Authentics family," said David Leiner, Topps Global General Manager of Sports & Entertainment. "He's a dynamic player who is already commanding a lot of attention. Ohtani and Topps Authentics are a perfect match because fans around the world can feel safe and secure in knowing what they are getting is authentic."

Topps Authentics brings MLB Authenticated items into the marketplace, eliminating the guesswork and uncertainty surrounding signed memorabilia. The signings are witnessed by representatives of Authenticators Inc., the industry standard for autographed and game-used memorabilia authentication. Other MLB players who are part of Topps Authentics include rising stars such as Francisco Lindor, Gleyber Torres and Amed Rosario.

"I'm excited to be part of Topps Authentics because Topps has a long history in Baseball and partnering with its players," Ohtani said.

"We always support Major League Baseball players and have become great partners with a number of athletes over the years," Leiner added. "We're thrilled to work with Ohtani and his team and to see what he will do on the field this year."

Ohtani was a much sought after player from Japan during the offseason. He's a dual-threat player who can pitch and hit. In Japan, as a pitcher, he had 624 strikeouts in 543 career innings in the Japan Pacific League, and hit .322 with 30 home runs and 98 RBI in 169 games.

His Topps Authentics deal comes on the heels Topps signing Ohtani to an autographed baseball card deal. His first pack-pulled autographed card appeared in 2018 Topps Heritage® Baseball, which is currently in stores.

In addition, Ohtani's TOPPS NOW® card commemorating his signing with the Angels broke a TOPPS NOW® print record with 17,323 cards sold in just 24 hours.
