Bobble of the Day
Player: Barry Sanders
Team: Detroit Lions
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
Barry Sanders has to be the best running back in the history of the NFL and it’s a god damn shame he walked away from the game. He retired way to early as he had moves I’ve never seen before. On the turf at home, he used to cut and shake defenders like it was his fucking job. This bobble is special tome because it highlights his 1997 in which he rushed for 2,053 yards which is insane. I would have loved to have this dude on my fantasy football squad.
The thing that stands out most on this rare bobble is the bronze base. Most Super Bowl MVP bobbles have the bronze base and Barry never played in a Super Bowl. That’s why I think this one is so special. So, he ran for over 2,00 yards, averaged 6.1 yards per carry and scored 11 touchdowns.
The powder blue uniform really pops and the fact that he’s got the gray football gloves that match his pants is fresh as hell. Another feature is the two black elbow pads which means he’s a straight baller. The facial features are spot on as it definitely looks like Barry. And lastly, the raised lettering on the front of the base that says, “Sanders” is of raised letters.
Sniper Rating: Everything on this bobble screams “Winner”. This one is crazy hard to find and when it’s on Ebay it goes fast! I sold one last year for $165.00 and the guy literally wanted to drive to pick it up and he lived in Detroit! I told him to settle down and I boxed it perfectly like I always do.
Overall, Barry scores a sure fire 9.5 as he retired way to long and fans adore the shit out of this guy.
