Bobble of the Day
Player: Tom Seaver
Team: New York Mets
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
Those who ever saw Seaver pitch know how really good he was. After all, he’s know as “The Franchise” for god’s sake. A fastball that consistently came at batter’s at 94+ mph on a consistent basis. All of the stud pitchers on the current Mets can all learn something from “Terrific Tom” as he was one of the All-Time greats.
This bobble was exclusively sold at Citi Field and it sold out quick! The first thing that stands out is the “old school” retro uniform Seaver is wearing. I love it when the Mets have their bobbles display the vintage uni’s as they stand out that much more. His stance on this bobble is pretty dope as he looks like he’s hurling a 3-2 fastball that hits 95mph. The facial features are on point and the back base has his name and the Mets logo all over it. The base itself is pretty standard as Seaver is standing on replicate dirt. I know his name is on the back wall of the bobble but I would have liked to see his name in raised letters on the front of the base. Another added feature is the Cooperstown Hall of Fame emblem on the front of the base which is fresh as hell. Lastly, the MLB patch stands out a lot on his right throwing arm which I dig a lot.
Sniper Rating: This 2016 model of Mr. Seaver is a nice addition to a growing collection. It’s got a lot of character of one of the Mets All-Time greats, nevertheless one of baseball’s greats. I personally think this belongs in your collection even if you’re a youngin who didn’t get a chance to see “Terrific Tom” throw a baseball. Get this one and display it proudly as Tom Seaver scores a solid 8.5 rating.
