1996 Bandai MLS Figures

1996 - Bandai Tab Ramos

Bandai produced several figures for the MLS in conjunction with it's inaugural season. Each figure came packed with an Upper Deck trading card. The cards have an action shot on the front and a head shot and bio on the back.

Players issued:
Cobi Jones, LA Galaxy
Tab Ramos, MetroStars
Carlos Valderrama, Tampa Bay Mutiny
Alexi Lalas, NE Revolution
Frank Klopas, KC Wizards
Hugo Sanchez, Dallas Burn
Doctor Kumalo, Columbus Crew
John Harkes, DC United
Marcello Balboa, Colorado Rapids
Eric Wynalda, San Jose Clash

I finally picked up a Tab Ramos, which I had kept putting off for another time. The back of the package shows all of the MLS figures as well as their 2" keychain counterparts.

The full figure is 4" tall with a green base, although the images on the back of the package show a white base. My figure still has the original $5.99 price sticker...
