2007 RePlays Derek Jeter (Home Jersey)

It’s MLB playoff time and sadly my NY Mets have once again suffered through another losing season.There’s always next year.The Yankees on the other hand always seem to be right in the middle of things come playoff time and this guy right here has a lot to do with that.Derek Jeter has to be the most recognized player in the majors and in the entire world of sports for that matter.I am not huge fan of Jeter nor am i big on the Yankees but i know greatness  when i see it.So to me it was a no-brainer to pick this iconic sport stars figure up from a local department store where it sat for days at the bottom of a clearance bin.These RePlays MLB figures were released by a company called Gracelyn  in 2007 along with an NFL line of figures as well.I’ve seen some NFL RePlays since their initial release but no MLB.I’m wondering if McFarlane’s MLB Playmakers had anything to do with that,seeming to be the more popular brand.Who knows.What i do know is that these RePlays figures are very cool,and i wish that Gracelyn would have followed up on them.

One of the great things about RePlays MLB figures is the use of  logos(checkout the Rawlings mit) and neat accessories they come with.McFarlane Playmakers have great looking figures but fail to use officially licensed logos on any of their figures equipment(at least not the MLB figures ,not sure about the NFL ones).Another cool thing about RePlays is that most of the accessories are removable(check out Jeter’s   shades and baseball)!My only gripe about these figures is that while McFarlane’s Playmakers are fully pose able,RePlays are not.They do have some articulation but not as much as  Playmakers do.Another small problem with  RePlays  is that while trying to pose your figure it’s not uncommon for a leg or an arm to come off  in the process but since these are more for display purposes and not so much an action figure, it’s a nuisance that can be overlooked.I like RePlays and wish Gracelyn would have continued to make these awesome MLB figures!
