    The Major League Baseball line of Celebriducks has been extremely popular since their introduction this summer as in-stadium giveaways for the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers and New York Yankees. Celebriducks were voted the number one fan favorite giveaway in a recent ESPN.com online poll.

    "We are constantly striving to create products that capture the spirit of the game away from the ballpark," said Howard Smith, Senior Vice President of Licensing for Major League Baseball Properties. "Our partnership with Celebriducks is indicative of how a product can express the fun and excitement of Major League Baseball in a creative new collectible."

    "Celebriducks are further proof that the popularity of Major League baseball players can turn an otherwise ordinary product into one that is unique and highly collectible," said Evan Kaplan, Category Manager, Trading Cards & Collectibles for the Major League Baseball Players Association. "Billed as the hottest new product to hit the market, Celebriducks offer a somewhat irreverent way for baseball fans of all ages to show their support of their favorite players."

    "We are both excited and proud to now be the exclusive provider of celebrity rubber ducks for Major League Baseball," said Craig Wolfe, owner of Celebriducks. "It has been wonderful to see the tremendous response of people everywhere who have been captivated by our little bath quackers."
