Big (Business) Papi
Of all the Lego-style likenesses of Sox players recently released by OYO Sportstoys, none is more amusing than the diminutive version of one-man brute squad David Ortiz. The collectible figurine is the latest example of the branding power of Papi, who just might be Boston’s most merchandised player of all time. Don’t believe us?
