No Lie About This Bobblehead As George Santos Has Arrived

Today, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first George Santos Bobbleheads. Santos, the recently elected Republican congressman from New York, has been caught in a slew of lies and deceptions about his resume, family heritage and personal life and is now under investigation by multiple organizations. We have been receiving a growing number of requests for a bobblehead of Santos with some people calling him the early candidate for “Bobblehead of the Year”. Two versions of the bobblehead are being offered—a standard version and one with an elongated nose given the seemingly never-ending series of lies and fabrications.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum will be donating $5 from every George Santos Bobblehead sold to dog-related GoFundMe Campaigns. Recently, Rich Osthoff, a Navy veteran from New Jersey, revealed that Santos, then introduced as Anthony Devolder, launched a GoFundMe campaign in 2016 to raise $3,000 for lifesaving surgery for Osthoff’s beloved service dog and kept the money.

Just What The “Doc” Ordered As Grubbs Creates A Custom Gooden Bobblehead

Travis Grubb never shy’s away from creating a masterpiece when it comes to his next custom bobblehead idea. Recently, while scrolling through social media, Grubbs noticed a trade show with a stacked lineup of former and present professional athletes. Many nation-wide shows present opportunities for fans and collectors to meet their favorite athletes who stand in long lines for a chance to receive an autograph. One name that stood out instantly to Grubbs was Doc Gooden.

Dwight, aka “Doc” who won a World Series title with the New York Mets in 1986 was a fan favorite amongst baseball fans in the tri-state area for many years.  “The idea came to mind to replicate Doc in a pinstripe uniform on a 1986 World Series “Ticket Base” with of course the shiny trophy to highlight the title for the Mets” says Grubb. The rest is history as Grubbs went right to work on a 3D preparation program called Chiutbox that improves quality when printing. 

A total of 30 hours just for print time went into creating this custom Doc Gooden bobblehead. It took Grubbs 12 hours to print the base, 12 hours to print the body and 6 hours to print the head and trophy. Ultimately, 45 total hours with prep and paint made this project happen. “I started with an existing Doc bobblehead and scanned it using my Eiscan scanner. Next, I used Meshmixer to clean up the parts and made several tweaks and adjustments to the model. Lastly, the Chiutbox was used to set up the pieces for printing says Grubb.” From start to finish it’s a long process but the biggest pain in the ass was the painting. According to Grubb, the pinstripe on the uniform was so thin which made painting within those lines very time consuming. “I really took my time with this custom because when I present it to the player, it’s extremely rewarding for me to see their reaction. I want the entire piece to be perfect says Grubb.”

Once Grubbs hits the road to the VA Beach Fieldhouse on February 25th with the good Doc sitting shotgun, he understands and appreciates the countless hours in creating this custom bobblehead. “To see a players reaction when you show them an item that you personally created, makes the long hours working on the project seem minimal.”

Grubbs is excited to get his bobblehead inked by Mr. Gooden next month and Mets collectors have already reached out to him in hopes he can manufacture more customs. When asked what his intentions are for the 12″ custom bobble, “As of right now, this custom 1 of 1 is mine to get signed. I have my ears open and will always listen to what collectors want. I will never turn down a request to create something special for someone.” You can reach him via email tgrubb23@yahoo.com or DM him on Instagram at rva_bobbles.

Fans of Yellowstone May Want To Take A Trip To See The Range Riders In Montana

The recent boom of the show Yellowstone has attracted many eyes towards the state of Montana. With dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests and hot springs, what’s their not to like about such a beautiful place? The average tourist wouldn’t even realize that there’s a baseball team until 2022. The Glacier Range Riders are an independent baseball team of the Pioneer League, an MLB Partner League, who began play in 22. They are located in Kalispell, Montana and play their home games at Flathead Field. Through much discussion within the state, the team name was settled on the Range Riders, particularly named for nearby Glacier National Park, established in 1910. The name Range Rider has deep regional roots not known to outsiders. These defenders of the wilderness protected and preserved the area from poachers, wildfires, and timber thieves.  Their rough-and-tumble role and characteristic toughness influenced the creation of the Range Rider mascot, a mountain goat which can be found roaming throughout the higher elevations of Glacier National Park, and at Flathead Field!

I recently obtained their official mascot bobblehead named Cliff (There’s also a 2nd mascot named Huck) as chosen by the fans. Manufactured by Promotional Adventures, Cliff displays his red wild rag around his neck while in a hitting action pose. His sharp horns point out from his off-brown cowboy hat to deter potential timber thieves away throughout the mountains. Of course a homerun bobblehead isn’t complete without raised letters as Cliff’s name is front and center on the circular base.

I love this bobblehead and anyone who loves the show Yellowstone should have an immediate connection to not only to the Range Riders baseball team but as a bobblehead collector. Cliff would be a great addition to anyone’s collection to display.

The Bobblehead Hall Pays Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr

This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Talking Bobblehead. The officially licensed bobblehead features the civil rights leader standing at the podium delivering his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech and includes audio clips of the famous speech. The bobblehead unveiling comes on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and marks the first talking bobblehead or the civil rights pioneer. The special edition bobblehead is being produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in conjunction with the estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dressed in a dark suit, the Dr. King bobblehead is standing at a podium in front of multiple microphones. The bobblehead base bears his name along with the date August 28, 1963 – the date Dr. King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech during the March on Washington. Each bobblehead is individually numbered to 19,630 and they are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads, which are expected to ship in April, are $40 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.

On August 28th, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., the African American civil rights movement reached its high-water mark when Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech to about 250,000 people attending the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The peaceful rally was the largest gathering for civil rights of its time. The demonstrators came together to demand voting rights and equal opportunity for African Americans and to appeal for an end to racial segregation and discrimination.

With a statue of Abraham Lincoln towering behind him, Dr. King was the last speaker among the civil rights leaders on hand. “I have a dream,” he boomed to the crowd, which stretched from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. “that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal.’ I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.”

Dr. King ended his stirring 16-minute speech with: “When we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, Black men and white men, Jews and Gentile, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!’” Dr. King’s actions helped get the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed, which outlawed several types of discrimination. He later was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

“We are proud to release the first talking bobblehead of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as we commemorate his life and legacy on MLK Day,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “Dr. King is one of the most frequently requested when it comes to bobbleheads, and we’re thrilled to team up with his estate to provide people with the opportunity to honor and celebrate his life with this bobblehead.”
