MLB Unveils All-Star Crown Statues to Celebrate 2012 MLB All-Star Week Festivities in Kansas City

As part of the celebration of All-Star Week in Kansas City, the All-Star Crown will take its place alongside recent icons such as the Statue of Liberty in New York, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Mickey Mouse in Anaheim and the cactus in Phoenix by being commemorated in baseball-themed statue form.

MLB has teamed up with licensee Forever Collectibles to design a series of All-Star Crown statues to celebrate an iconic symbol of baseball in Kansas City. A total of five statues weighing more than 1,000 pounds each will be stationed at key locations around the Kansas City area. Specific locations and further details will be announced at a later date.

The statues are uniquely decorated with bold graphics celebrating the 2012 All-Star Game, the Royals and each of the 30 MLB Clubs. One of the statues was designed and painted by renowned pop artist Charles Fazzino.

Collectible versions measuring 6.5 inches tall will be available at MLB.com. The Statues will also be available at Team Shops and local retailers in Kansas City next week. Additionally, limited edition pins of the statues will be sold at MLB All-Star FanFest.
