Upper Deck Inks Memorabilia Deal with Tennessee Titans Rookie Standout, Marcus Mariota

College football legend and NFL star rookie Marcus Mariota joins Upper Deck's roster of superstar athletes!

/EIN News/ -- CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Upper Deck and Marcus Mariota, the University of Oregon Heisman Trophy winner and second overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, today announced a new signature deal through GT Sports Marketing that allows Upper Deck to create a lineup of premium autographed Mariota collectibles.

Mariota made history this past Sunday as the first quarterback in Titans history to throw a game-winning touchdown pass in overtime, which led the Titans to a 34-28 victory against the Saints. The star rookie had his best pro game to date, racking up an incredible 4 touchdown passes, 371 yards and 0 interceptions.

"Mariota had a stunning college career and has already shown tremendous potential with the Tennessee Titans. His star power makes him a perfect addition to our ever-growing roster of young, talented athletes," said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck.

Marcus Mariota is the first Hawaiian-born player to ever win the Heisman trophy. He collected dozens of honors and awards as a college quarterback including the Davey O'Brien Award for the nation's best college quarterback and the Walter Camp and Maxwell Awards for the nation's best college football player. Mariota threw four touchdown passes in his historic NFL debut with the Tennessee Titans earlier this season. His play-making abilities and charismatic nature have helped establish a large fan base in Tennessee and across the entire country.

The new Marcus Mariota collection from Upper Deck Authenticated includes authentic signed Jerseys, helmets, footballs and exclusive images that cannot be found anywhere else. Fans can view the full line of Mariota products at UpperDeckStore.com/Marcus-Mariota.
