Donruss has signed Gordon Beckham to an autograph deal. The former Georgia Bulldog shortstop and College World Series standout will appear on packaging for 2008 Donruss Elite Extra Edition.
As part of the deal, Donruss also has obtained a Beckham game-used Georgia jersey worn during the 2008 season in which the Bulldogs reached the College World Series final before falling to Fresno State. The jersey will be used in EEE.
Beckham was selected in the first-round of the 2008 MLB First Year Player Draft by the Chicago White Sox.
“Gordon Beckham is a perfect fit for Elite Extra Edition, and he’s been a great guy to work with,” says Donruss Brand Manager Ben Ecklar. “He’s taken interest in the product, wanting to make sure we had everything we need.”
