Bobble of the Day
Player: David Ortiz
Team: Springfield Thunderbirds
People around the Boston area can’t get enough of Big Papi. The guy retires a few years ago and now a minor league hockey team named the Springfield Thunderbirds gave out a SGA of yours truly, David Ortiz. I’ve never even heard of the Thunderbirds prior to this giveaway, but I sure as hell do now.
Word on the street was to score extras of this bobble was damn near impossible. The people of Springfield Mass are diehard fans and everyone wanted this bobble. Luckily, my buddy Joe and Brandon, got me the hookup and I appreciate the generosity.
Not very often do you see a hockey team commemorate a MLB player for a giveaway, but we got lucky here Snipers. Ortiz is in his famous homerun stance as he crosses home plate with both arms in the air. The Thunderbirds threw a dope looking hockey jersey on Big Papi, as their logo is very sharp looking. It’s lined with red and blue stripes and Ortizs’ name and number sit tight on the back with raised letters.
Sniper Rating: What would a David Ortiz bobblehead be without the flashy Oakley sunglasses? Props to the Thunderbirds for adding this feature, as it makes the bobblehead MUCH more attractive. A smash hit bobblehead and a big thanks to the Springfield Thunderbirds, as this Ortiz bobble scores a 8.5 rating. Unfortunately, it comes with a standard white box instead of a high gloss colored one. Sneak over to Ebay and pick one up as the price of this Springfield David Ortiz bobblehead will only increase in the near future!
