Autographs & Athletes

Max and Erica Scherzer are partnering with Polaris to bring fans their Autographs & Athletes program for the 2016 MLB Season. Through this program, fans can get their favorite Max Scherzer items signed by mailing the item to Polaris’s office and by making an online donation. Max will personally sign the item to you or a person of your choice that you designate. At the end of the year, all of the money raised through Autographs & Athletes will be matched by Max & Erica Scherzer and donated to Polaris. Erica is an Ambassador for Polaris.
