Bobble of the Day-Fernando Valenzuela

Bobble of the Day Player: Fernando Valenzuela Team: Los Angeles Dodgers Year: 2011 SGA Manufacturer: ? Love what the Dodgers did in 2011 with this Valenzuela bobble as a giveaway. The detail in this one is epic. On September 17th 1981, Fernando Valenzuela threw his 8th shutout of the season and set a new National League record. Fans loved Fernando’s whacky delivery and “Fernandomania” swept across Southern California. In 2011, the Dodgers produced an official “Fernandomania” Stadium Giveaway and gave it out to fans on July 26th. There’s many pro’s to this bobble. I love the colors of Dodger blue on Fernando’s...

Who takes the cake in Bobble world and in life? Heidi Watney, Jenny Dell or Lindsay Czarniak?

The newscasters tenure didn’t last long as a whirldwind of drama started. Apparently, Jason Varitek split from his...

Not just because I’ve built an empire and I collect them, but they really are something to talk about. Anyone that says they aren’t is lying through their ass pipe. Is collecting thousands and thousands bobbleheads weird to some? Maybe. Is it for everybody? No. Do people...

That feeling you get when………

You win an auction for a bobble on Ebay!!! I’m telling you, there’s nothing better than sniping that bobble you wanted from some slapdick on the other end. I’ve seen it all. 3 day, 5 day, 7 day and 10 day auctions. You name it. You’ve been watching it all week, checking your tablet or smartphone while you’re taking a shit or stuck in traffic to see if the bids keep going up. You know everyone has their own strategy as far as winning an auction. Obviously, I will not reveal mine as I’m sure I’ve sniped plenty of...
