McFarlane Toys Reveals Lineup For MLB Series 31
Baseball Superstars Swing Into Stores Spring 2013
Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Start the new year off right with MLB series 31, bringing back some of the recognizable superstars in the league. Yankees Captain Derek Jeter, Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia, Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg, Dodgers All Star Matt Kemp, and former MVP Ryan Braun all appear in new poses. Making his SportsPicks Debut in this series is the most exciting player on one of the surprise teams from the 2012 season, Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This lineup consists of players who will be battling it out for end of year awards. Kemp, McCutchen and Braun will all be in the mix for the National League MVP, and Jeter has the potential to bring home his first American League MVP. Strasburg also has the chance to win his first Cy Young award, coming off a stellar season for the upstart Nationals.

No player has been more talked about over the past few months than the SDSU alum, Stephen Strasburg. In addition to his pristine record and ERA, the debate has raged on whether he should be allowed to pitch into the post-season, or should he be shut down to save his arm long term? Only the Nationals truly know.

Leading the surprising Pittsburgh Pirates to their first winning record in 19 seasons, Andrew McCutchen has simply been amazing. Among the league leaders in batting average, McCutchen has proven himself to be one of the best all-around players in the game today. He will be making his SportsPicks Debut wearing the Pirates black jersey.

McFarlane's Collector Level is well represented in MLB 31, with four Collector Level figures included in the lineup. Andrew McCutchen will be a GOLD Level figure wearing his Pirates' home white uniform, and Ryan Braun will be available as a SILVER Level figure in the Brewers' pinstriped jersey. Rounding out the Collector Level is Stephen Strasburg and Matt Kemp, both at the BRONZE Level. Strasburg will be showcasing his red Nationals jersey and Kemp will be wearing the Dodgers home white uniform.

This phenomenal lineup will hit stores early spring 2013.Be sure to stay tuned to for all the latest SportsPicks info and news.
