New Red Sox Toy Line Is Complete With Beards

Gomes' 'Ironsides'
An Acton, Massachusetts-based toy company (OYO) has produced a new line of Red Sox player action 'minifigures' replete with the 2013 versions of their famous beards. The "special edition" line of toys—dubbed 'Boston Red Sox #getbeard'—allows kids (or, presumably, older fans as well) to collect all twelve action figures! You can get Dustin Pedroia and his "Sickflow" beard or go top-shelf for Jonny Gomes and his "Ironsides" whiskers. Or maybe you think Jarrod Saltalamacchia and his "Saltine" is the best beard on the block. You know this hirsute phenomenon has reached cult status when this kind of stuff happens. Collect away, fans!
