PHILLY PREPARES FOR COUNTERFEIT CRACKDOWN AT ALL-STAR GAME
Published July 2, 1996
MLB and the Phillies, along with local and federal law enforcement officials, announced yesterday their efforts to "crack down" on the manufacture and sale of counterfeit merchandise during All-Star Week. At a press conference yesterday at Veterans Stadium, officially licensed MLB merchandise was displayed and compared to unlicensed merchandise, with recommendations given for consumer awareness. Areas throughout Philadelphia will be patrolled by undercover investigators searching for vendors selling "bogus" merchandise. It is estimated the MLB, its licensees and vendors of licensed products lose "millions of dollars" each year to counterfeiters (MLB). MLB Exec Dir for Security Kevin Hallinan: "We're working to find out where the volume is coming from, not one or two t- shirts, but the manufacturing" (PHILA. DAILY NEWS, 7/2).
