McFarlane Announces MLB Fanfest Exclusive Figures
Yankee Captains to be Offered as MLB All-Star Exclusives
Toys Posted 2/16/2008
As Major League Baseball heads to the Bronx this summer, fans prepare for a season’s tribute to the final season at beloved Yankee Stadium. McFarlane Toys plans to honor the pinstripes with a pair of All-Star figures for the last two captains of the New York Yankees.
McFarlane's MLB Exclusives for this July’s MLB All-Star Game are Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter in an all-new pose, and legendary Yankees first baseman Don Mattingly in New York’s road gray uniform. From what McFarlane has released as "hints" it appears that Jeter will be a headswap of the previously issued Johnny Damon's hat-tipping pose. Mattingly could be a repaint of his previously issued Legends figure, in a gray uniform rather than pinstripes.
The All-Star FanFest is located in New York’s Javits Center from July 11-15.
