Look out Lil’ Teammates. You’ve got some competition. This June, Topps plans to release 2013 Topps Big League Minis. These 3″ vinyl figures will come in packs, and you can try to collect the entire 28-figure set. Each pack will contain (1) figure. Unlike Lil’ Teammates, these figures will be of specific players. There is even word that they plan to make some variation figures to keep an eye out for.
It doesn’t surprise me that Topps decided to venture into this market. Just take a look at what one of the rare TeenyMates figures recently sold for. Collectible vinyl figures are hot!
