Cooperstown Collection Action Figure Feature Online
Spawn.com Unveils Baseball Legends Extravaganza
One of the McFarlane Companies' proudest announcements of 2004 came when we unveiled -- with
all due flourishes -- our first sports legends lineup: the Cooperstown Collection.
This initial series of legendary baseball players from several eras of the game is simply
stunning both in the breadth and depth of the players selected to the detail with which they
were sculpted. This first lineup consists of:
- Bob Gibson, St. Louis Cardinals, pitcher, No. 45, sculpted in his now-classic post-delivery
pose, glove hand high and falling toward first base.
- Brooks Robinson, Baltimore Orioles third baseman, No. 5, sculpted making one of his typical
plays: Gobbling up a liner at third.
- Nolan Ryan, Texas Rangers, pitcher, No. 34, sculpted in his pre-delivery pose, leg kicked
high and getting ready to unleash some ungodly heat toward the plate.
- Yogi Berra, New York Yankees, catcher, No. 8, sculpted crouched in the on-deck circle with
two outs. He's wearing his shin guards just in case the batter makes the third out and he has
to get behind the plate.
- Tom Seaver, New York Mets, pitcher, No. 41, sculpted in his delivery pose, in full stretch
throwing the overhand heat.
- Reggie Jackson, New York Yankees, outfield, No. 44, sculpted in his classic post-home run
swing, wide-legged and watching the ball disappear.
The folks at spawn.com have gone the extra mile -- or taken the extra base, if you will -- to dig
deeper into the Cooperstown Collection before its release. We present to you:
