Is “racking” at a bobblehead game really all that it’s cracked up to be?
For those of you who don’t know what the term “racking” is within the bobblehead game, here’s a brief explanation. When you go to a SGA bobble game and you Snipe a ton of bobbles and I mean a ton. Not 10, not 15, not 20, I mean like 30-50. A whole rack of bobbleheads that fills your entire trunk, is “racking”. There’s less than a dozen collector’s that I know of who legitimately “rack” on a consistent basis. This takes a piss load of time and a shit ton of hustle. It’s an absolute grind the entire game.
Now the question is, whether you can “rack” or not, how important is it? Is it super important to walk back to your car with 40 bobbleheads, or is 15 just fine? A lot of Ebay and Facebook sellers (pre-sell) bobbles a lot, so getting enough to cover your pre-sales is a must. I’m very cautious when pre-selling as I want to be prepared if anything bad happens at the game. I for one, do not like pre-selling a lot of bobbles before a game just as a precaution. And personally, I don’t need 40 bobbleheads. 40-50 bobbleheads is fucking great, but I just don’t have the room in the bobble cave. I’m already up to my nut sack down there and racking 40 something bobbles will just add more of a headache. I don’t give a shit how much they are worth on the open market, but 12-18 is perfectly fine for me.
I had my days 6-8 years ago where I couldn’t see out my back window because of so many bobbles. Those days are long gone. Time, family and just way to many bobbles in the cave put an immediate end to that. And I’m happy with it.
