Bobble of the Day “Lonzo Ball” Breakthrough Series Bobblehead

Bobble of the Day Player: Lonzo Ball Team: Los Angeles Lakers Year: 2018 Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles We all know the Lake show didn’t make the playoffs but we all know the talent and potential for this team next year. And of course, Lonzo Ball is the center piece of this franchise. And that’s exactly why Sports Fan Island created this exclusive Ball bobblehead.  This is a cocky item for several reasons. The look alike “Hollywood” sign on the back of the base says Lonzo Ball in raised white letters. There’s two California pine trees on each side that you...

Bobble of the Day Gary Dunaier “Thumbs Down Guy” Bobblehead

Bobble of the Day Fan: Gary Dunaier (Thumbs Down Guy) Team: New York Yankees Year: 2018 Manufacturer: Bobblehead Hall of Fame Fucking Gary Dunaier. The guy is a diehard Mets fan and he attended a game between the Yankees and Rays at Citi Field due to Hurricane Irma. Todd Frazier strolls to the plate, clocks a 3-run Homerun and Gary was not pleased. As soon as Frazier rounded 3rd base, Gary greeted everyone with a thumbs down motion, as he didn’t approve of the HR blast. Instantly, he became a famous.

Can Success Promotions go back to back with the SGA of the Year?

My first SGA manufacturer “Bobble of the Year” went to Success as they nailed the “Squints” Brooklyn Cyclones SGA bobble. It was perfect. Between the detail, lettering, and superb facial recognition, the Squints bobble was a no brainer. As we ease into the 2018 season of SGA’s, can Success Promotions repeat?  The biggest question we as collector’s have, is we don’t necessarily know who the manufacturer is until we look at the bottom of the base. Since I have pinpoint fucking vision, I can usually tell by a picture on a teams website. Another slight problem we face, is...

Are bobbleheads the best thing to collect as far as sports memorabilia?

What really is the best piece of sports memorabilia to collect as a fan? We all have our own shit we collect as fans. Autographed baseballs, bobbleheads, baseball cards, jersey’s, helmets you name it. Whatever it is that fans collect, the value of each item fluctuates. A signed Hall of Fame Mike Piazza jersey goes for big bucks. A Nolan Ryan autographed baseball could go for $85.00 to $100.00. Bobbleheads on average can range from $10.00 to $300.00 give or take what bobblehead it actually is.  You know my answer, as I feel bobbleheads are the most unique items...
