The seven-time world boxing champion, who later turned to be a politician, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, has now ventured into another business. This time, his new store sells all Manny Pacquiao branded collectible items – from button pins, shorts, shoes, jackets, boxing gloves, tees and other collectible items that are said to be handpicked by the People’s Champ’s wife, Jinkee. The shop, Team Pacquiao: Store By Manny Pacquiao, has its official launched yesterday, August 8 2010 with “The Pacman”, himself, and his wife present for the autographed signing. The store is located at the Robinson’s Galleria Sports Loop.
What made this shop controversial is the limited edition action figure of Manny, Disney licensed MINDstyle collectible items, which are sold for P25,000. I heard that there’s someone who just came all the way from Los Angeles, USA just to buy this collector’s item figure. Manny Pacquiao can now be leveled with celebrities like Michael Jordan and Mickey Mouse because of this Disney – licensed MINDstyle collectible figure! The figure is made of vinyl material and possesses the cartoonized features of the now, Cong. Pacquiao.
Also, as part of the P.O.P. Collection by MINDstyle, two new Team Pacquiao Store exclusive t-shirts were officially launched and they were released for the Philippines market only.
I’m sure this new venture of Pacman will surely be a hit just like any other business and ventures he has laid hands to.
