For Auction: SportsKids Baseball Jocks Minnesota Twins Doll 1987
- Up for auction is a unique piece of Minnesota Twins memorabilia that I've
never seen available anywhere else and might possibly be some kind of
memorabilia prototype that was never released for sale to the general
public. It is a doll called a "Sportskids Baseball Jocks" made by Sports
Kids Inc of San Francisco, CA and the copyright date is 1986. I did try to
research this piece of Twins memorabilia online and came up with virtually
no information about it. I posted to a few online Twins groups with photos
and none of the members of those groups had ever seen this item before
either. I also emailed the Minnesota Twins organization with a photo of the
item and got a response saying they'd never sold such an item at any
Minnesota Twins games and had no information on it.
The doll is in a plastic cylindrical container labeled LITTLE JOCKS,
along with the Official Licensee Major League Baseball Logo, and a list of
MBL teams that the doll was supposed to be available for. Unfortunately,
the container is not in the best condition and is cracked in some places.
The container with the lid on it is about 8 1/2 inches high.
The doll itself has a baseball for a head & body and is wearing a Twins
uniform with a red cap and it has moving arms. It is about 7" high outside
of the container. The doll is in excellent condition, showing vibrant
coloring, no cracks, or any other kind of damage. Attached to the arm is a
tag that says "Official Licensee Major League Baseball". Writing on the
doll's backside has a copyright date of 1987.
Thanks for looking & happy bidding!
