Toys ‘R’ Us drops price of Alex Rodriguez figurine from $15.99 to $1.00


When I was a child in the 1990′s, young and innocent and recording my experiences so as to turn them into GIF-infused listicles many years later, I owned an Alex Rodriguez figurine. I don’t remember how many leaves I had to rake and weeds I had to pull in order to afford the toy, but it definitely cost more than $1.00, which is the price A-Rod figurines are currently going for at Toys ‘R’ Us.

The A-Rod action figure was originally priced at $15.99, but for some inexplicable reason the price has been slashed. I wonder why? The figurine comes with many exciting features that children are sure to love, including the ability to deflect blame/responsibility and the power to spark ceaseless and redundant talk radio debates about the purity of baseball.

You better act fast if you want to buy one of these toys. I’m sure Bud Selig plans on purchasing a whole crate of them to use as kindling.
