Inaugural (New York Yankees exclusive)
SWING TAG PHRASE (inside right)
Celebrating Yankee Stadium
April 16, 2009
SWING TAG (inside)
1. The inside left of the swing tag shows The Beanie Buddies Collection, but the front of the tag is the image for the Ty Classics product line. Based on the fact that all except two of the large New York Yankees game promotiuon bears have "Beanie Buddies" swing tags (front side), tycollector.com categorizes Inaugural as a "Beanie Buddy," and concludes the use of the tag showing "Classics" on the front was a production mistake.
2. Inaugural was handed out on September 30, 2009 at Yankee Stadium to the first 18,000 children age 14 and under who attended the game.
