Check This Out - A Yasiel Puig Custom MacFarlane Figurine

Last week I came across a post on the r/Dodgers reddit that featured a little bit of Dodgers themed folk art.  The Original Poster, Tonedog14, shared some photos of a MacFarlane figurine that was repurposed - that is, custom painted to look like our Cuban sensation.  So, I immediately contacted the poster and he was kind enough to allow me to share the pics here.

Wow!  This thing is great.  It almost looks a little like Puig.

I had asked a couple of follow up questions.  Unfortunately, I hadn't heard back.  Oh, well. 

I was curious about who the figurine was originally.  Based on some preliminary research, I think it may have been a 2006 Andruw Jones figurine, which is a little nerve-racking. 

From my understanding, Tonedog14's father painted this figurine and regularly sells similar creations at a Frank & Sons booth in the City of Industry.  So, if you're interested in this piece or anything like it I suggest stopping by.

According to Tonedog14 they sell these folk art pieces at $50 to $75 a piece, depending upon the amount of detail.  Their booth is located in aisle 100 at booth 127, and if you want to get in contact with them feel free to email his father here.  If you get lost look for the north east corner of the warehouse.
