The Jury Is In: NY Yankees Aaron Judge Signs With Pepsi As National Spokesman

By Barry Janoff

November 13, 2017: Pepsi this past season lost its official status with MLB when it was replaced by rival Coca-Cola, but it retained official status with teams including the New Yankees.

Pepsi today took that alliance a major step forward by signing Yankees rookie outfield Aaron Judge to an endorsement deal.

Judge, who hit a MLB rookie-record 52 home runs this season, on Monday also was named the American League Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year.

In addtion, he won a Silver Slugger Award and is among the top players being considered for AL MVP.

Financial terms of the multi-year deal were not shared.

The endorsement comes on the heels of Judge being named cover athlete for MLB The Show 18.

Judge also has alliances that include Under Armour and Fanatics.

"We are thrilled to welcome Aaron to the Pepsi family," Justin Toman, senior director-sports marketing for PepsiCo, said in a statement.

"He's one of the biggest rising stars in baseball and we're looking forward to working together to engage baseball enthusiasts in new and unique ways next season and beyond."

Judge will appear in multi-media marketing for Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Zero Sugar, which will ramp up as the 2018 MLB season approaches.

PepsiCo employees actually got a sneak preview of the alliance last week when Judge visited the company's headquarters in Purchase, NY, to speak with executives and was introduced at a meeting as Pepsi's newest spokesman. ("Aaron Judge's First Day At Pepsi.")

According to Judge, "I am very excited to be working with Pepsi. Having grown up with Pepsi in my home, it makes this partnership even more special.

“Just like Pepsi, I always try to find ways to celebrate this great sport with our fans. They're now providing me another way to share my passion for the game."

Judge MLB rookie one-season record of 52 homers topped Mark McGwire’s 49 in 1987, and his 33 home runs in Yankee Stadium broke Babe Ruth’s team record of 32 set in 1921 (in the Polo Grounds).

This past year, Judge became only the second rookie in baseball history to lead MLB in jersey sales for the entire season, joining Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs, who accomplished the feat during this rookie season in 2015.

Judge is among 14 players in the running for the No. 1 card in Topps 2018 Baseball Series 1, to be decided by fan voting.

The winner will be unveiled "a couple of weeks" before the release of 2018 Topps Baseball Series 1, which is scheduled for Jan. 31, 2018., according to Topps.

Sales of Judge’s Topps NOW cards this season neared 100,000, including a one-card mark 16,138 copies of the card commemorating his rookie record-breaking 50th home run.

Judge’s 50th home run Topps NOW card broke the single-card record of 11,550 commemorating Ichiro Suzuki’s 3,000th career hit in 2016.

Judge's 2017 Topps NOW Home Run Derby championship card is third all-time (8,997).
