A merchandise deal between Fathead, Upper Deck and three prominent superstar athletes will finally allow golf fans to stick a life-size image of Tiger Woods on their walls. Or Michael Jordan. Or Wayne Gretzky. Since all three have ties to the sport.
The deal, announced last week, finally allows Fathead the rights to Tiger's image -- and they've definitely made the most of it, with various Fatheads in all manner of shapes and sizes. Want a pose of Tiger Woods in his iconic Sunday red-and-black outfit for your family room? They've got it. Want a huge oversized smiling Tiger Woods head for your den? Yep, it's available.
Obviously, Jordan and Gretzky are better-known for their athletic exploits in other sports. But Mike's connection to golf goes all the way to the Ryder Cup, plsu some rounds with PGA Tour pros like Keegan Bradley. And Gretzky just happens to be Dustin Johnson's father-in-law.
Here's the full news release:
Fathead and The Upper Deck Company and its affiliates have reached an agreement to bring three of sports most famous athletes to the bedrooms, offices and man caves of fans around the world. NBA great Michael Jordan, NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, and golfing superstar Tiger Woods will now be available as Fatheads.
“We’ve had this extraordinary deal in our sights for quite a while,” said Patrick McInnis, Chief Executive Officer of Fathead. “The demand Fathead has received for these iconic athletes is unprecedented and to now have them as a part of the Fathead roster will provide sports fans around the world with the opportunity to celebrate greatness with true Walls of Fame!”
Fathead will produce a variety of sizes and styles including the ‘REAL.BIG.’ line of life-size, high definition die-cut wall graphics, ‘Stand Outs’ and select ‘Big Head’ cut outs, stunning murals, as well as the space-friendly ‘Fathead Jr’.
Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and Tiger Woods Fatheads are high definition graphics made of a durable, high-grade vinyl that is tear and fade resistant.
