The Red Sox were the 2018 World Series Champions!
This week at their home opener, the players received their Championship rings in a pre-game ceremony that featured the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots as well! OYO’s featured in the Red Sox Hat Lady story on NBC Boston too!
OYO produced in November, and retired at the end of the year, a set of World Series Champion minifigures to commemorate the players. It was an incredible season for the team, from start to finish. They ended the regular season at 108-54, an amazing record for their 118th season, their first under new manager Alex Cora. That is quite a freshman accomplishment. Fenway Park, in it’s 107th season hosting the team, saw many great moments during the season, even though they would win their playoff series’ on the road.
OYO’s lineup included MVP Steve Pearce, who had an incredible post season after joining the team during the season. He had 4 clutch HRs (leading the team) and 11 RBI’s in the postseason! Also a great freshman start with the Sox.
David Price became the pitcher Red Sox fans hoped for, especially in the postseason, going 3-1 in playoffs, and winning the final game to clinch the World Series for the Red Sox.
Eduardo Nuñez proved to be the lowest production run minifigure made by us, followed closely by Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly, who did not return to the team in 2019. Steve Pearce, Mookie Betts, and Andrew Benintendi proved to be the most popular minifigures.
For construction sets, our Home Run Set featured the Champs logo printed on the outfield. Included in this set is the exclusive Alex Cora minifigure, the manager striding out of the dugout on to the field and only available as a Champ in the Home Run Set.
The new Parade Buses will remain available all season long for fans to re-create the magic of the win. The other opportunity for Red Sox fans all season is to create an OYOme of themselves as a World Series Champion. We will keep this version available in OYOme all season!
Please see below for the complete checklist, and Happy Hunting – some of the players have sold out, and most will shortly as they are all very low.
