McFarlane Toys' Jackie Robinson Day 3-Pack

McFarlane: Outsiders - 2008.10.03
Jackie Robinson is one of the greatest baseball players of all time - his career is defined by what he did on the field, and what he stood for by simply being on the field. On April 15, 1947, Robinson took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers and became the first African-American player in Major League Baseball. In 1997, his uniform #42 was retired by all 30 Major League teams, with a notable and important exception.

Major League Baseball officially recognized April 15 as "Jackie Robinson Day" in 2004. In 2007, Ken Griffey, Jr. requested permission to wear #42 on that specific day to honor Robinson's legacy. Major League Baseball approved the concept, and all players were given the option of wearing #42 as their uniform number for that day only, in tribute to the truest of baseball heroes. Griffey and Robinson Cano (who is named after Jackie Robinson) wore #42 in 2007 and 2008 as a salute to Jackie Robinson's courage, grace and determination. This 3-pack showcases Jackie Robinson alongside Griffey and Cano, as they wear his uniform #42 in tribute.

The boxed set will be available at mass as well as specialty retailers - expected to arrive on shelves in late February, 2009.

I found this set yesterday at TRU in OKC. Besides the slightly goofy smile they put on Griffey’s face, this is a great set.
