What's On Tap at this Chicago Sports Happening
June 27, 2003
Copyright 2015 TMP International, Inc.

The road gang has a summer full of exciting travel, nutritious fast food and lots of cool events upcoming. The first is the Major League Baseball John Hancock All-Star FanFest at McCormick Place in Chicago.

We'll be at the event Friday, July 11 through Tuesday, July 15, 2003. Our booth will be located in the Making of the Game area, adjacent to the Franklin (MLB glove manufacturer) booth. Our booth will be entertaining, filled with two-up prototypes of upcoming action figures as well as a how-to-make-a-figure display.

FanFest is the largest baseball event in the world, with some 40 interactive baseball-themed attractions, vendors and more. It provides baseball fans of all ages the once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the fun and excitement of the Major League Baseball Midsummer Classic.

As most of you probably know, McFarlane Toys will have a pair of exclusive baseball action figures for sale at the event:

  • Sammy Sosa, Chicago Cubs, in his MLB Series 6 pose and alternate road uniform
  • Frank Thomas, Chicago White Sox designated hitter
These figures will be available to purchase for $15 each or $25 for a set of both. Initial purchase limits are one set per person. That may change as the event progresses, but we want as many people as possible to have access to these exclusives.

But, wait, even though we're serious about the concept of event exclusives, we realize that not everyone can get to Chicago. So, we saved a single set of exclusives to give away here on

All you have to do is send an e-mail to Subject: FanFest Contest. Include your name and complete mailing address. You may enter only once. All entries must be received by noon PST July 9. The winner will be announced on July 11. Good luck.
