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.
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.
