Casey Close of CAA has recently made Ryan Howard the person you will see on the cover of new Topps baseball card boxes [To trading card company, Howard is Topps].
No doubt about it, Ryan Howard is a great baseball player with the potential to break many records. However, maybe there is more appeal to Howard than just his reigning MVP title. Sports Agents, take heed:
Topps spokesman [Clay] Luraschi said Howard should continue picking up momentum, in part due to the fact Howard is untainted by steroid abuse and other off-the-field problems. “He is a great player on the field and a great person off it.”
Putting up numbers will get your client money. Keeping a good image will multiply those figures.
