'Tis the season to buy everyone you know an Alex Rodriguez collectable action figure. And you can get one for 93 percent off at Toys R Us.

The toy giant has knocked down the price of a six-inch A-Rod figure from Todd McFarlane's MLB 29 series from $15.99 to a very reasonable $1. Given what's transpired lately, you have to wonder if Bud Selig will buy every single A-Rod figure Toys R Us has and turn them into voodoo dolls.

Other figures from the MLB 29 series, like a Josh Hamilton in his Texas Rangers days or Adrian Gonzalez in a Boston Red Sox uni, are still selling for $15.99. That tells you it takes more than a trade or free agency to earn a 93% discount at Toys R Us. Oddly enough, the only other $1 figure of this sort is a Thurman Munson. Tough times for the Yankees.

Even a Prince Fielder Fathead from his Milwaukee Brewers days is still commanding the full $99.99 price.
