Under The Tree: 1991-92 Ace Novelty M.V.P. Sports Stars

Witnessing the massive success Tonka had with their line of WWF Wrestling Buddies, Ace Novelty decided to cash-in with their own line of similar toys called M.V.P. Sports Stars.

Ace Novelty produced their M.V.P. Sports Stars between 1991 and 1992. Instead of focusing on wrestling, they produced pillow-like dudes for MLB, NFL, NBA, and the NHL.

MLB a.k.a. Super Sluggers consists of (4) pillows – Nolan Ryan, Jose Canseco, Ken Griffey, Jr., and Ryne Sandberg.

NFL a.k.a. Tackling Dummies consists of (7) pillows – Randall Cunningham, Jim Kelly, Joe Montana, Boomer Esiason, Troy Aikman, Warren Moon, and Dan Marino.

NHL a.k.a. Power Skaters consists of (3) pillows – Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, and Mario Lemieux.

NBA a.k.a. Hoopster Heroes consists of (3) pillows – Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Patrick Ewing.

Mint condition examples which have never been removed from their box do have a certain level of desire. Nowhere near as much as the Tonka WWF Wrestling Buddies though.

These are toys, and they were meant to be played with. They took quite a beating over the years.
