Hartland MLB Baseball 25th Anniversary Mickey Mantle Boxed
Although not avid sport fans per se, we couldn't help falling in love with the Hartland baseball players as they are a natural extension of our love of the western heroes. Long before computerized image rendering, Hartland was able to create remarkable figures that actually looked like the people that represented! We've always enjoyed how remarkable they look. Hartland released 18 baseball players measuring 8 1/2" tall from 1958 to 1963. Each beautifully done and rounded out with an easily lost (or were they just thrown away!) 'hang tag'. Of the 18, 17 were currently, at the time, active players with Babe Ruth being the only 'nostalgic' release.
In 1987, Dallas attorney William Alley of Dallas, secured the rights to produce a commemorative set of the original 18 players. They are:
|1||Hank Aaron||10||Mickey Mantle|
|2||Luis Aparicio||11||Roger Maris|
|3||Ernie Banks||12||Eddie Mathews|
|4||Yogi Berra||13||Willie Mays|
|5||Rocky Colavito||14||Stan Musial|
|6||Don Drysdale||15||Babe Ruth|
|7||Nellie Fox||16||Duke Snider|
|8||Dick Groat||17||Warren Spahn|
|9||Harmon Killebrew||18||Ted Williams|
