Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck this month signed a multi-year deal with Panini Authentic that gives the Italy-based company exclusive autograph and memorabilia rights. The multi-year agreement extends to items such as photos, jerseys and helmets. It does not give Panini exclusive rights to autographed Andrew Luck trading cards.

Memorabilia from Luck's first signing went on sale this week at the Panini Authentic website.

Luck is the first NFL player to sign an exclusive deal with the brand, joining the likes of NBA superstars Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin.

“We've been waiting for just the right player to spearhead Panini Authentic's expansion into other sports,” said Panini America CEO Mark Warsop. “Andrew Luck is that player.”

Some of the items on the Panini Authentic website include autographs photos of Luck in action during the 2012 NFL Rookie Photo Shoot, helmets with and without inscriptions from his college days in Stanford and both replica and authentic Colts editions, and footballs that also come with and without inscriptions. Prices for the memorabilia range from $199.99 for the photos to $549.99 for an authentic Riddell Speed Helmet signed by Luck.
