Bobble of the Day
Player: Larry Bird
Team: Boston Celtics
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
Larry friggin Legend Snipers. Once again, the gentlemen over at Clark’s hit a grand slam with this exclusive. Bird is know within the basketball world as a top 10 player of all time. Given the time he played for the Celtics, he managed to win 3 World Championships and this exclusive bobble depicts those honors.
Larry Legend played most of his career in the 1980’s and back then they used to wear the oversized vintage sunglasses and short shorts. These two features highlight the 80’s perfectly. In addition to the shades and tight shorts, I dig the old-school green sneakers with the tall socks as that’s what Larry used to wear when playing at the Garden.
Sniper Rating: The main feature on this exclusive has to be the 3 championship rings on the top of the base. Bird and the Celtics won 3 titles and Clark’s nailed it with the replica rings. Each one has diamonds surrounding the perimeter of the ring and has either the Celtics Logo, a shamrock or a NBA trophy in the middle. The replica rings sure make the bobble pop along with the all green base and Bird’s name in white raised letters.
Clark Toys has created some previous Larry Bird exclusives, but this one takes the cake by far. It’s got a little bit of everything with the vintage look, to shiny diamonds and bright colors. Bird is an NBA legend and once this bobble sells out, it will become a legendary item to own. Larry the Legend scores a 10.0.
Only numbered to #750 on clarktoys.com as I suggest ALL Snipers score this one.
