The Statue of Liberty at the Topps Company Building.

The Statue of Liberty representing the Brooklyn Dodgers. This is only a replica. The real one will be put up in front of Topps Headquarters.

In honor of the MLB All-Star Game being held in New York, MLB announced that 41 replicas of the Statue of Liberty will be set up in various places throughout the city. There will be one representing all 30 teams (can't imagine what will happen to the Boston one, although it's going to be up near the Sports Museum of America on 26 Broadway...thanks to Scott for correcting me), along with one representing each league (NL and AL), five for the All Star game (four games held at Yankee Stadium, one at Shea), one each for the final seasons of Yankee and Shea Stadiums, one for the New York Giants, and one for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Why am I even bothering to post this? Because the Brooklyn Dodgers one is to be set up at the Topps Company building on One Whitehall Street. In a tribute to it's Brooklyn roots, it is fitting that they get this one.

Do I see a new gimmick card in the works??? Shhhhh...

Just FYI, The Sports Museum of America is at 26 Broadway, not 26th AND Broadway.
