Darin Amundson, an avid Beckett.com visitor and ardent sports collector, recently fumbled across — er, stumbled across — what appears to be a rare McFarlane variant of Minnesota Vikings superstar running back Adrian Peterson.

OK, so Amundson didn’t discover it. The diehard Vikings fan actually made it himself, using a Peterson Series 7 three-inch figure that he had lying around in his personal collection.
The figure in question reveals something that has become all too familiar a sight in Minnesota — Peterson fumbling the football, something he did twice in last Sunday’s NFC Championship Game loss to the New Orleans Saints, and something he’s done 19 times in his first three seasons.
“Yes, it’s my custom job,” Amundson notes. “The ball was surprisingly easy to pop out of his arm. This is good therapy for licking my wounds from Sunday.
“I still love Adrian, he just needs to spend the summer with a ball in his hand, and Tiki Barber at his side showing him the way.”
