Donruss Signs Adrian Peterson to Endorsement Deal

Auto Date Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Peterson-Donruss-Classics-Rookie Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson, who was the 7th selection in the 2007 NFL Draft, has signed an endorsement deal with Donruss/Playoff.

Donruss/Playoff will use Adrian Peterson’s images on packaging throughout the year and will include his autograph in all their football products.

“Adrian Peterson had an outstanding career at Oklahoma and should be one of the most exciting rookies this season,” said Donruss Playoff Marketing Director Scott Prusha. “He is an electrifying performer that will shine on the NFL stage. We are excited to have him aboard and look forward to working with him throughout the year.”

It is not clear if this will prevent Topps and Upper Deck from including autograph and memorabilia cards of Adrian Peterson in their 2007 NFL card products, but there is no mention of it being an exclusive deal.
