Friday, July 22, 2005

The McFarlane Toys road gang returns to The National Sports Collector's Convention. This year, the 26th annual convention is in Chicago, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center from Wednesday, July 27 through Sunday, July 31.

We'll have an exclusive National action figure for sale: Nomar Garciaparra, Chicago Cubs SS, No. 5. This limited-edition McFarlane's Sports Picks Major League Baseball action figure features Nomar in his Cubs alternate road blue jersey. We have produced a total of 4,000 of these exclusive figures.

Nomar's National figure will sell for $15 each. We're not expecting to impose purchase limits on the Garciaparra figures unless early demand necessitates it. The McFarlane Toys crew will be at booth #727. We'll look forward to seeing our fans in Chicago next week!

So, you won't be able to make it to Chi-town for the National Sports Collector's Convention but you really want the Nomar Garciaparra exclusive? Hmmmm, tough break. Just kidding. Enter here ( for a chance to win the Garciaparra exclusive figure. We'll be giving away figures to five lucky winners selected randomly from all entries! Good luck.
