Full set of 18 intact figurines, including prized Mickey Mantle.
Known in the hobby as the 1955 Dairy Queen white set, these statues were actually issued by Tastee-Freez in 1956. The statues were manufactured by Big League Inc., and are virtually identical to the Big League Stars bronze colored set issued by the company in blister packs that same year. When you ordered an "All Star Sundae" with your favorite toppings or flavors, the statue was mounted with the "lifelike miniatures of big League baseball stars." These statues were given away by Tastee-Freeze in a "Coloring Contest" where you could win $10,000. in cash prizes. [from http://keymancollectibles.com/figurines/tasteefreezbigleaguestars.htm]
