Sports Picks Goodwill Hits the Motor City
Friday, July 15, 2005

McFarlane Toys met the Michigan faithful last week, setting up shop inside the John Hancock MLB All-Star FanFest. The booth showcased 2-up sculptures of several baseball stars and sold Exclusive figures of current Tigers Ivan Rodriguez and Troy Percival.

Congratulations go out to Patrick Ross of New York and Jose Santacruz from California for being selected as the winners of our Detroit FanFest Contest! Both gentlemen will receive a set of the Rodriguez/Percival figures.

Highlights from the weekend included Cal Ripken, Alex Rodriguez and Fergie Jenkins sightings as well as Hall of Fame pitcher Juan Marichal stopping by the booth and admiring our Willie Mays figure.

Thanks to the people of Detroit and to our collectors for coming by and meeting the crew at the FanFest. Look for McFarlane Toys to continue our "road trip" next July when the All-Star Game heads to Pittsburgh.
