New York Yankees rookie pitcher Luis Severino has only pitched in one MLB game, but the price of his memorabilia is already higher than normal.
The rookie right-hander already had hype surrounding him when he took the mound last week against the Boston Red Sox, but the hype for his signed merchandise was just as high.
According to the New York Post, “Steiner Sports began offering a pre-sale on signed merchandise, ranging from a $69.99 baseball to a $239.99 pinstriped jersey.”
The regular prices for Luis Severino merchandise are already 10 to 15 percent higher and is set to rise even higher. “His price will be higher the next time he signs,” read a Steiner Sports’ press release.
Last week, the 21-year-old Dominican made his big-league debut after going 7-0 in Triple-A. Against the Red Sox, Severino allowed two runs (one earned) and struck out seven batters while allowing no walks.
“I wasn’t nervous,” Severino said. “This was the opportunity to make the most of the moment.”
Luis Severino is set to make his second big-league start on Tuesday against the Cleveland Indians.
