November 26, 2008

McFarlane Toys is offering our own "golden ticket" in the Cooperstown 2009 lineup. This series includes our second Babe Ruth figure, showcased pitching for both the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Ruth's Yankees figure is portrayed in the 1920 uniform -- when the Yankees wore a white cap with blue pinstripes. Five of these Yankee versions of Babe Ruth are receiving an alternate paint job -- with the hat painted dark blue with a white NY logo -- what's generally considered the Yankees' "normal" hat. Two of these figures will go into our permanent archive, but three will be randomly inserted into sealed cases of Cooperstown 2009.

These figures will be recognizable not only by the blue hat, but the back of each package will be sealed with our McFarlane blue logo safety tape -- usually found on our sealed Sports Picks cases. Prior to this, the rarest Sports Picks figure was a Teemu Selanne Winnipeg Jets figure from the NHL 6 lineup. Most of the Jets Selanne figures had his traditional number eight on his jersey, but 13 of them featured the numeral 13 -- the number he wore during his record-setting rookie season. The last #13 Selanne sold online fetched $8,500 dollars!

We've just received our two archive samples; the other three figures will be randomly inserted into sealed cases of Cooperstown 2009. This lineup is due in stores in February 2009, so keep your eye out in the new year. Three lucky people will find a Babe Ruth super chase figure -- and here's a peek at what it will look like:
