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...

Bobble of the Day- Mike Piazza

Bobble of the Day Player: Mike Piazza Team: New York Mets Year: 2002 Manufacturer: AGP You know my opinion about Alexander Global Production (AGP) Bobbleheads already. They all in this particular year have the same stance, body and face. Blah, blah, blah. This review is more about the sponsor and box. Just about every SGA that the Mets give away is sponsored by Gold’s Horseradish. I myself do not like horseradish. I actually think it fucking disgusting. That being said, I like the way it looks as an emblem on all Mets bobbles. I’m not sure if it’s the...

Bobble of the Day-George H.W. Bush

Bobble of the Day Player: George H. W. Bush Team: Yale University (Bulldogs)- Bridgeport Bluefish Year: 2015 SGA Manufacturer: ? Who knew George H. W. Bush (former president of the United States) played college baseball? I sure as fuck didn’t. The Bluefish came out in 2015 with a George Bush Yale Bulldogs Bobblehead for the first 500 fans in attendance. Bush played in the first ever College World Series. He played first base for Yale from 1964-1968. Okay, on to the Bobble. Firstly, the box is cool as shit. Tons of colors and very bright. The Bluefish use the...

Stereotypes of Bobbleheads

Stereotypes of Bobbleheads (That is not me in the picture)  Bobbleheads have an overwhelming negative stereotype, especially if you’re an adult that collects them. It’s not about these corny little bobbleheads. It’s about something you are passionate about. It doesn’t matter if you’re into collecting knives, guns, hats, sneakers, art paintings, cars, recipes or bobbleheads. It’s what makes you happy and the need to fulfill your urge to be happy. Who gives a shit if you’re a collector? Be you and fuck what others think.   I cannot tell you the amount of times when my bro’s have first come down...
