Show and Tell: Kenner's Starting Lineup

4:00 PM on 09.09.2011 // Andres Cerrato

I didn't grow up with a lot of the same hobbies I have now. I never read comics, wasn't big into movies, and classic NES and Genesis games were just something that occupied time. I threw all of my passion and study into sports. I would always study NFL roster, obsessively track stats in Tecmo Super Bowl, and even draw up my own playbooks. As any kid would have, my toys reflected my passion: I was a massive collector of Kenner's Starting Lineup figure series.

The figures were of sports' biggest stars. Some would have a better resemblance than others. Ultimately, they let me put together my ultimate teams (even though they were mostly quarterbacks and pitchers). Join me after the jump for a video sharing these figures of my childhood.
