With troubles stemming from copyright infringement, ownership changes, and missing molds from the once-popular plastic statues, the Wisconsin-based Hartland Company ceased operations. Cashing in on the 1988 silver anniversary of the original baseball issue, however, a Dallas attorney secured permission to produce a commemorative set, which is presented in its entirety! In the original retail boxes, all (18) pristine figurines are included, as well as the “Bat Boy,” which had long ago stirred controversy as the “Little Leaguer.” More on our website.
Included are: Aaron, Aparicio, Banks, Berra, Colavito, Drysdale, Fox, Groat, Killebrew, Mantle, Maris, Mathews, Mays, Musial, Ruth, Snider, Spahn and T. Williams.
As stated in our catalog description, all are Mint-in-box with accessories (bats, in most cases) included. The “Bat Boy” statue presents “Mint” but is not in its original box.
