Damian Lillard, the top rookie in the NBA through the first part of the season, has signed an exclusive multi-year autograph deal with Leaf Trading Cards.
While Leaf already had a deal with the Trail Blazers point guard for non-NBA cards, this expands it. Leaf will be the only company offering autographed Lillard cards and signed memorabilia.
"In choosing our first exclusive basketball partnership, there was no question that Damian Lillard was the right guy," said Leaf CEO, Brian Gray in a press release. "From day one, he showed a command of the court and exuberance for the game."
Lillard autographs can currently be in a couple of sets, including 2012Leaf Signature Series Basketball. Collectors can expect plenty more in the future in both basketball and multi-sport sets.
