Shohei Ohtani has agreed to a multiyear partnership with Fanatics, which becomes the exclusive distributor of Ohtani autographs, collectables and memorabilia.
Ohtani will sign bats, jerseys, photos and select game-used items in both English and Japanese. The agreement doesn't affect sports cards.
"This is something we've been working towards for a while," Fanatics executive vice president Victor Shaffer said. "[This] will be the first time fans are going to be offered a full array of [Ohtani's] memorabilia products. The strength of his celebrity and his collectability extends well beyond the United States."
