World Series champion Giants get Oyo figures
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
It will be a while before we see baseball cards of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants, but Oyo Sports isn’t toying around with its postseason tribute.
Fifteen members of the Giants squad can already be found with World Series commemorative figures from the Lego-style toy manufacturer. Everyone from World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner to journeyman Travis Ishikawa can be had in figure form with World Series-specific notations on the toys as well as World Series packaging.
Each toy has a custom “Oyo DNA number” and comes with a glove, bat, ball, standard cap and a World Series cap. They are available as individual figures or as a team set that includes an umpire, a fan figure as well as a field that can be built upon.
The individual figures are $12.99, while the team set is $159.99. The players include Bumgarner, Ishikawa, Gregor Blanco, Hunter Pence, Joe Panik, Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford, Mike Morse, Tim Hudson and Pablo Sandoval.
The company has come a long way since its debut with baseball in 2012 (click to see our story about their debut), since adding NHL and NFL players as well as NCAA schools to its toy lineup. You can find more information at www.oyosports.com.
