McFarlane Toys recently announced that it will produce a special three-pack of 6-inch Sports Picks baseball figures highlighting Jackie Robinson Day.

Included in the set, of course, will be Jackie Robinson, the Brooklyn Dodgers legend who broke down baseball’s color barrier in 1947 — along with Ken Griffey Jr., who wore No. 42 during the day this season as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, as well as New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano, who is named after the Hall of Famer.

But that’s not all that was announced …

Also announced was a New York Yankees two-pack, which will include Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter — because the Yankees fans apparently remain hungry for toys of their stars in pinstripes.

Each package will hit stores in February.
