Bobble of the Day Mr. Met “Subway Series”

Bobble of the Day Mascot: Mr. Met Team: New York Mets Year: 2015 Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles (Bobble of the Month) The Mets in their 2nd consecutive year came out with the Bobble of the Month series. Only available at the Mets team store at Citi Field. This one sold extremely fast! Mr. Met “Subway Series” for the month of September. Limited to only 150 made by FOCO. This is one of the coolest bobbles I own. Mr. Met is holding a Subway dividing the Yankees and Mets. Over here on the East Coast fans take this rivalry serious. I...

Bobble of the Day Ivan Rodriguez

Bobble of the Day Player: Ivan (Pudge) Rodriguez  Team: Florida Marlins Year: 2003 Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles I love Pudge. I think he’s been the best all around catcher that I’ve seen in my generation. His legs are the size of fucking tree trunks and he’s built like a brick shithouse. That’s why he was so durable for many years. I loved when the Marlins beat the Yankees to win the World Series in 03. A true underdog team with nothing to lose. What gets me on this bobble is the colors. The teal/aqua color adds pop to this one...

Bobble of the Day-Manny Ramirez

Bobble of the Day Player: Manny Ramirez Team: Los Angeles Dodgers Year: 2009 Manufactuer: P2 P Squared You’d think being a Red Sox fan I would do a Boston Bobble of the Day on Manny but no. This LA Dodger one seals the deal for me. Even though this bobble depicts Manny hitting a grand slam into the left field bleachers I was happy for him. And that’s why I got the bobble. As a pinch hitter Manny goes to the on deck circle to hear the roar of the Dodger faithful. He clears the bases and the rest...

SGA vs. Retail Who Wins?

SGA vs Retail Bobblehead. Who wins? So the ongoing debate that many collectors have is what is better? A stadium giveaway (SGA) bobblehead or a retail bobblehead? Typically, the first 15,000 or 25,000 people to enter the gate at a ball game get a bobble as a free giveaway.  The Giants, Mets, Dodgers and Red Sox for example have been doing some really cool bobble giveaways the past few years. They have players in different stances, arms in the air, follow through pose on a pitcher, diving for a ball and players making a wall-catch etc. There’s many factors...

Bobble of the Day-Reggie Jackson

Bobble of the Day  Player: Reggie Jackson Team: Oakland Athletics  Year: 2103 SGA  Manufacturer: BD&A I love this Reggie for mainly one reason only. The colors. They pop. They are bright. They are attractive to the eye. It stands out. I feel like if you are a legit collector and you don’t have this one you may be an asshole. I don’t even care if you’re a Reggie Jackson fan or not. BD&A dropped the hammer on this one. The structure is solid, the colors are bright, the Reggie Homerun swing stance is on point and the sunglasses he’s...
