August 5th 2001 was Beanie Bopper Giveaway day at Yankee
Stadium. When the stadium gates opened at 11am the first 18,000 children under the age of
14 were given a Bronx Bomber Beanie Bopper! Wow whata name!
This was the first boy Bopper to ever be released by Ty! Each
Bopper was accompanied by a Collectors Card.
Bronx has a special made Beanie Bopper tag, the inside tag
reads as follows:
Birthday: August 5
Hometown: Bronx, New York
Favorites: Playing baseball and
cheering for the Yankees.
Bronx Bomber was first
announced on the Ty website on August 3, 2001 and then to much surprise he
was retired quickly on August 7th! This makes this Bopper very rare, it appears
that it will never be available to the general public through retailers.
One of these cards was given with each Bopper! Click image for a larger view!
