The Annual Bobble List: 2019 MLB Bobbles


The Washington Nationals’ Victor Robles (when he was a Potomac National)

The Annual Bobble List is finally here! There are 203 remaining opportunities to snag a bobblehead at a Major League ballpark near you. In fact, there are SO many bobbleheads coming, I decided to split this list into two separate posts – watch this space for MiLB bobbles tomorrow.

This year there are a variety of Game of Thrones, Marvel Super Heroes, Snoopy, Hello Kitty, and Star Wars bobbles (including Obi-Wan Canóbi). Maybe you’re totally in to mascots: the Reds’ Mr. Redlegs, the Oriole Bird, Mr. Met, the Giants’ Lou, and a few other mascots get their own bobblehead this year.

If you want legendary players, you’ll have the opportunity to collect Don Newcombe, Willie Mays, Joe Morgan, Brooks Robinson, Bert Campaneris, and Steve Garvey. Perhaps you want current players. If so, don’t miss Trey Mancini (O’s), Trea Turner (Nats), both Gurriels (Astros and Blue Jays), Gleyber Torres (Yankees), and a bunch of other guys. Favorite player went to another team? Even some of those guys have bobbles: Joe Kelly (Dodgers), Yasmani Grandal (Brewers), and Yasiel Puig (Reds). And if you really, really love Joe Mauer, the twins are giving away four different Joe Mauer bobbleheads this year.

20120630-084510.jpgOf course, not all figurines are bobbleheads this year, with a few statues, replicas, and gnomes thrown in. New this year are a handful of Funko POP! figures, including: Bruce Lee (Giants), Edgar Martinez (Mariners), Eugenio Suarez (Reds), Freddie Freeman (Braves), Yadier Molina (Cardinals), and Ichiro Suzuki (Mariners).

Of course, several bobbleheads require a special ticket, so check the team’s website before you make your plans. And several bobbles are TBA or lack a description, so keep an eye on your favorite team’s website for udates!

GOT Bobbles?

HBO_Trio_Ice(5).jpgThe Game of Thrones final season premiered last night and tomorrow I’ll release my Annual Bobble List, which will include info on this year’s Game of Thrones / MLB bobbleheads. But if you can’t make it to the ballpark or you want even more, you can pick some up from the Bobblehead Hall of Fame or the manufacturer, FOCO (also known as Forever Collectibles). These bobbles, officially licensed by HBO and MLB, are available for all 30 teams. The first series released by FOCO has three styles: the Iron Throne (with team mascots); the Ice Dragon (featuring team logo); and the Night King (complete with an ice baseball bat and team banner). More are coming soon, including GOT x MLB player bobbles, such as Aaron Judge and Bryce Harper. Very cool.

The Best of the Week: 4/7/2019 – 4/13/2019

img_3022Best of the Week? There have been a lot this week from Manny’s awesome play on Friday to Baysox Opening Night (when they were no-hit by three Harrisburg pitchers). For me, however, the arrival of my Jose Mendez bobblehead in the mail on Friday was my Best of the Week! Mendez is part of a series of bobbleheads created to commemorate next year’s 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues. The “Negro Leagues Centennial Team” will feature 32 stars from the Negro Leagues, which will be released throughout the year.

Jose will join Jackie and Hank on my bobblehead shelf.

Happy bobbling!

Stat-urday, 4/13/2018: All About Bobbles


One of my favorite Minor League Baseball bobbles: Trey Mancini with the Frederick Keys (and now with the O’s)

Since I’m on a bobblehead kick right now (my Annual List is coming!!!), I thought I’d see what kind of bobblehead statistics are out there. And I wasn’t disappointed. There were several great stats-related bobble articles, so I’ve posted their links here:

  • In 2013, a writer for SB Nation did an analysis of how players performed on their bobblehead night. She has some great info on which players hit homeruns on their bobble nights and which ones weren’t even present for their bobble night.
  • Last year for National Bobblehead Day, the website Decades posted some fun facts about bobbleheads, including the fact that the San Francisco Giants have given away more than 75 bobbleheads. I’m not sure if that’s ever or what they’re measuring here, but still a fun fact.
  • Not baseball-related, but a website dedicated to hockey bobbleheads has some great stats on bobbleheds, including “Bobblettendance.” We need something similar for baseball!
  • Two years ago, Crain’s Cleveland Business reported several stats regarding Cleveland Indians’ bobblehead nights. They found a whopping 25% increase in attendance on bobble nights.
  • Towards Data Science published a detailed statistical analysis titled, “Applied multi-level model on panel data in MLB promotion marketing,” looking at several factors, including date of giveaway, day of the week, and other variables.
  • Amazon has a list of “Best Sellers in Bobble Head Figures,” but (a) bobblehead is one generally one word, and (b) they are almost all Funko figures, so that doesn’t count. Nonetheless, Babe Ruth comes in at #61 and Aaron Judge is #93. (Interestingly, Fred Sanford from “Sanford & Son” is #50 – and it’s pretty cool.) (I will not get sucked into collecting new things. I will not get sucked into collecting new things.)  By the way, the Los Angeles Times had a great article about Funko back in 2010.

Happy Stat-urday!

Getting Closer . . .

Are you ready for the Annual Bobble List? Which player do you need a bobblehead of this year? Last year, I really wanted this one of Estevan Florial:

After seeing him in the Arizona Fall League, I had to get one. Finally, I had a coupon for eBay and am now the proud owner of an Estevan Florial bobblehead!

Don’t forget – the Annual Bobble List will be here soon!

Still Coming . . .

The Annual Bobble List is coming next week – along with more info on this year’s Game of Thrones / MLB bobbleheads.

In the meantime, I’ve been spending time with my current bobbleheads. I really miss these guys:


And, no, Manny, this is not acceptable – not without Jonathan:

No matter how you explain it:
