MLB Baseball Sports Picks were first announced back in Feb 2002 at the American International Toy Fair in New York. This announcement heralded a great personal triumph for Todd Mc Farlane as it gave him his fourth license in a top north American sport, after clinching contracts with the NFL, NBA and NHL.

McFarlanes figures are so detailed and authentic that it is like having your favorite star in your own home. Meticulouly sculpted and painted to bring you the best in baseball memorabilia.

As a one time player and lifelong collector of baseball memorabilia it also gave him the opportunity to put his companies vast talents into figures that would be truly representative of the players and that fans and collectors would be proud of.

Each figure features the official team logos and colors as well as authentic apparel and equipment specific to the player. Mc Farlanes are world famous for the detail and accuracy of their figure and these are no exceptions.

Many of the players have been captured in famous and historical moments that have made them famous and will bring back fond memories to many a fan.

Each 6 inch figure comes in it's own McFarlanes classic MLB Sports Picks clamshell packaging along with a custom base for it's display. Watch out for the special one off Collectors releases as well as the main stream figures.

Over the years these have become huge favorites with fans and collectors. because of their level of accuracy and detail of the paintwork and sculpting which is a testimonial to the talents of Mc Farlanes artists talents and abilities.

There are three main "brands" of MLB figures within the Sports Picks range:

Base Series- The base series consists generally of six figures, altough occassionally a seventh figure has been added, from the current teams and season. Many new players or rookies have seen their McFarlane debut in one of these series.

As well as the "base" figures each series will also include one or two chase figures which are harder to find and usually feature one of the base players in an alternate uniform. There are generally three releases during any given season to reflect any seasonal changes or trade offs.

Cooperstown- The Cooperstown brand highlights the careers of the games top players and Hall of Famers. Each Legends series usually consists of four players from the games history although current players who are deemed as exemplary have also been featured.

Collectors Edition- The Collectors Edition figures are the "one offs" that are produced for the "All-Stars" game, Hall of Fame Induction weekend and event exclusives. These figures are generally not released through the mainstream distributors either through their online shop or at the event.

There are other sets produced that aren't specific to any of these, e.g. the Ultimate Team Sets, and there are also a large number of Toys R Us Eclusive releases.
