Default Donruss has signed Gordon Beckham

Donruss has signed Gordon Beckham to an autograph deal and 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, a first-round pick of the Chicago White Sox in the 2008 MLB First Year Player Draft, will be prominently featured in EEE sales material as well.

"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."

Rick Porcello, the Detroit Tigers' first-round pick in 2007 whose autographs can be found in a series of 2008 Donruss products, also can be found in EEE, as part of a checklist 135-plus deep.

Elite Extra Edition will be released later this year and is licensed by the Collegiate Licensing Company.
