This Week In Bobbleheads, Part 4

Solid slate of bobbleheads coming up this week.  My personal favorite: Nashville’s Joseph the Dreamer giveaway on Friday.  I’m a sucker for non-sports-related bobbleheads.

As always, much love to Eric from The True Bobblehead Board for both the list and the commentary.

Iowa Cubs – Geovany Soto Statuette (first 1500) – The I-Cub standout has made an outstanding transition to the Cubbies in Chitown.

Joliet Jackhammers – Bill Haller (Wish Upon a Star) (first 1000) – Reality series bobbles now…Sheesh

Princeton Devil Rays – Carl Crawford Figurine (first 400) – Can you believe it’s been 8 years since he was a P-Ray?  And now he’s a perennial all-star.
Round Rock Express – Nolan Ryan Figurine in Astro Uniform (first 2500) – The Ryan Express in figurine form in the old time Astro Jersey.
Thursday, June 19
Altoona Curve – Adam Hyzdu – A Pirate 1st round pick in 1999 makes his 2nd Curve appearance as a resin formed bobblehead.

Baltimore Orioles – Nick Markakis – (first 25,000 adults) – This former Glen Cove NYer has taken the Chesapeake Bay by storm and his bobblehead legacy will grow.  His past figures include Aberdeen and Delmarva.

Lowell Spinners – Jacoby Ellsbury – This will be the first of three bobbles for Ellsbury by the end of June (Wilmington and New Hampshire).  

Friday, June 20
Birmingham Barons – Frank Thomas (first 1000) – The Big Hurt continued his road to stardom at the AA level here.

Saturday, June 21
Charlotte Knights – Dairy Cow (first 1500) – “Got Milk?”

Columbus Catfish – Random Past Bobblehead Giveaway (first 300) – Apparently some leftovers were found of Edwin Jackson, Chuck Tiffany and maybe some others. It also coincides with Bark in the Park…Bring the puppies!!!!

Somerset Patriots – Slider – Mascot – At least this character with a ball on his head is cute. 
Wisconsin Timberrattlers – Fang (Mascot)  – This unique mascot bobblehead has him firing a Bratzooka.  Sounds suspicious to me.
Sunday, June 22
Lakewood BlueClaws – Jimmy Rollins (first 2000) – The reigning NL MVP rehabbed in Lakewood in 2007.
Milwaukee Brewers – Polish Racing Sausage Bobblehead – It’s a good thing Randall Simon is no longer a major leaguer or this giveaway would have to run and hide.

One response to this post.

    I have a Jimmy Rollins Bobblehead. I believe from 1999 since it had a Reading Phillies ballcap. His uniform is red pinstriped with Phillies across the chest. The base says Jimmy Rollins and sitting on the base is a block that has “need it…got it! across the top of an oval. Inside the oval there is a red diamond with NIS in it and also in the oval is Novel-T-Shirts Sports Promotions. Can you confirm for me the origin and team and year of this bobblehead? I have not been able to find it with any searches. I find a lot of J-roll bobbleheads but not this one. Thanks.
