My family has owned and operated a Tastee Freez since 1958, recently celebrating the 60th anniversary of our Orwigsburg, PA location which continues to serve customers proudly. These player sundae toppers would have been used for the 1956 promotion, but our store was not open yet, so they remained unused in storage. More than a decade later, they were passed on to me.I continued to store them in a dark closet for years without disturbing them... They are authentic unused vintage Tastee Freez promotional items. This is a complete set of the following 18 players: Harvey Kuenn, Del Ennis, Larry Doby, Pee Wee Reese, Minnie Monoso, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Mickey Mantle, Ed Matthews, Mickey Vernon, Stan Musial, Bob Lemon, Al Rosen, J. Antonelli, Roy Campanella, Junior Gilliam, Bob Avila, Yogi Berra. Because the players were cast in detailed action poses, they were extremely fragile.
Particularly vulnerable to breaking were hitters with their bats extended like Mickey Mantle. Few unrepared examples of these players survive today. All of the figures included here have been carefully checked, and there are no cracks, breaks, or missing pieces. No repairs have been made. Unlike many examples exposed to light, these figures have not yellowed and remain white.They could use a light cleaning though, due to dust settling over the years.
