New Hartland statues are on the way!

We've been fans of Hartland statues for years - the company that made baseball statues (and some killer western/cowboy figures) starting back in the 1950s is alive and well, and making new baseball figures!

According to a story at Sports Collector's Digest, we get details of the company's upcoming plans, which include a new Jim Thorpe and Roy Campanella figure:

Hartland of Ohio LLC announced it will continue to “Make History” of iconic sports figures with new management team, vendor partnerships and new lineup of sports figures.

Longtime Hartland President Fay Halliwell states, “We have been working hard behind the scenes to restructure the direction of our company.  There will be many improvements that we hope our longtime customers support including new Collector’s Club, website, marketing strategy and consistent figure releases throughout the year.”

Hartland will concentrate on a variety of figures available in limited production including their Negro Leaguers, Signature Series (autographed figures), Classics and re-introducing the Plastic figures similar to the originals many have grown to love and other collectible figures.  Collector Club figures will be exclusive to members only and will not be available for sale to the general public.  Hartland also plans to expand into Stadium Giveaways, Corporate Branding and Promotions.
