Rare MLB™ SPORTSCLIX™ Babe Ruth Figure Discovered

WizKids: Jay Cochran - 2005.03.31
March 30, 2005 (SEATTLE) — A lucky MLB™ SportsClix player discovered a Master Piece Babe Ruth figure in Matteson, Illinois, on March 30th, 2005. Jim Wolfe discovered the figure, which is one of only 50 to be produced. Other copies of the meticulously painted Master Piece Babe Ruth figure, featuring the “Sultan of Swat” in his 1917 Boston Red Sox™ uniform, have sold to collectors for over $1,300.

Mr. Wolfe found the figure in a Booster Pack purchased from a Toys ‘R Us store in Matteson, Illinois. Toys ‘R Us has joined other stores to sell MLB SportsClix and become a place where baseball collectors like Wolfe can discover these rare and valuable sports collectibles.

MLB™ SportsClix is the baseball collectible miniatures game (CMG) from Topps Inc. and WizKids, Inc., creators of the CMG genre. The game features 119 of the top baseball players from yesterday and today, including rare National Baseball Hall of Fame™ players like Nolan Ryan, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. The game is simple to learn and fast and fun to play.

2005 MLB™ SportsClix is available at Target, Wal-Mart, Toys “R” Us, Meijer, The Sports Authority, Gart Sports and ShopKo stores. It is also available at sports card, hobby and game stores everywhere.

Founded by 20-year game-industry veteran Jordan Weisman, WizKids® is a Seattle-based game developer and publisher dedicated to creating tabletop games driven by imagination.
