Salvino's Bammers Mets Bear

Believe it or not, I actually have two stuffed Rickey Henderson bears in my collection. I discussed the Cooperstown Bear in a previous post, and now today's post features another Rickey bear in a Mets uniform. This one is slightly larger than the first, and is more the size of a beanie baby when they were all the craze.

Produced by Salvino's, this 7th Inning Stretch Salvino's Bammers bear was released in 1999 (on exactly July 12th, according to the hangtag). The hangtag also features a little caricature of Rickey, and it's surprisingly one of the better ones that I have seen over the years, as it actually looks a little bit like him.
