BARRY BONDS HITS HR #756
McFarlane Toys Releases Commemorative Collector's Edition Figure
Wednesday, August 08, 2007

Starting today, McFarlane Toys salutes the new home run king with a special Collector's Edition figure arriving in stores on the West Coast and making its way into stores further East in the next few days.

And in case you missed the excitement last night, here's the play-by-play:

"There's a swing and a high fly ball, right-center field...back it goes...racing back Logan jumping up and that ball is gone! Number 756! Barry Bonds stands alone! And on the night of August 7th, 2007 in San Francisco, California, Barry Lamar Bonds has hit more home runs than any major leaguer in the history of baseball."

A massive swing, a devastated baseball, a thousand flashbulbs and a trip around the bases brought Barry Bonds' career full circle as he touched home plate and became the all-time home run leader in Major League Baseball history. Bonds' 756th homer moved him one ahead of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron on the career home run list.

The Barry Bonds 756 Home Run Collector's Edition features an all-new packaging style and is expected to retail for $15-$20. You can find this commemorative figure at dozens of online retailers, as well as Wal-Mart, Toys 'R' Us, KB Toys, Entertainment Earth, eToys, FAO Schwartz, Talkin' Sports, Sports Images and in Canada through Grosnor and at Toys R Us Canada.
