Bobble of the Day
Player: Gary Carter
Team: Montreal Expos
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
Gary friggin Carter. Can you name a nicer guy than “The Kid”? A Hall of Fame catcher and alot of people don’t know that Gary played for the Montreal Expos prior to joining the Mets. I’m pumped FOCO made an Expos bobble for Gary as he sure as hell deserves it. Gary’s life was cut short way to early due to a nasty case of the C word. He was a fan favorite of practically any fan of any team.
Let’s get to the bobble. Of course FOCO has Carter in a pose ready to nail out a runner at second base. The base is just like the Rollie Fingers and Johnny Bench bobble within this series. A classic rectangular base with a sharp looking gold strip on the bottom. Of course us collector’s want raised letters but what can we do? Take a flight to China and demand raised letters on our collectibles?
Sniper Rating: The collector’s box also makes this item a must have. It’s incredible with photo’s of Gary and the fact there’s the Hall of Fame logo makes it that much more desirable. This Gary Carter Expos bobblehead scores a 9.0 rating.
