Notre Dame freshman cornerback and All-American selection Benjamin Morrison signed a name, image and likeness deal with Indiana-based sports trading card company Forever Young Sports Cards. The deal was announced recently via Twitter; as a part of the NIL deal, Forever Young Sports Cards will host an autograph session on January 28th.
Though only a freshman, Morrison has had a season to remember at Notre Dame. He intercepted his sixth pass of the season during Notre Dame’s 45-38 Gator Bowl victory over South Carolina. Morrison’s six interceptions are the most by a Notre Dame football player since Manti Te’o’s seven interceptions during Notre Dame’s 2012 BCS Championship appearance season.
With the addition of Benjamin Morrison, Forever Young Sports Cards is positioning itself as the premier sports memorabilia brand amongst the Fighting Irish hopeful.
Forever Young has partnered with former Fighting Irish greats such as Chris Zorich, Chicago Bears and former Fighting Irish wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown. Furthermore, Forever Young Sports Cards has added incoming freshman linebacker Drayk Bowen as a client.
Already an established commodity in the college football NIL space, Forever Young Sports Cards will be an interesting brand to watch and could continue building on its success by working with athletes across different Notre Dame sports within NIL moving forward.
