Dr. Fauci is in the House!


Remember a few months ago when the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum started taking orders for Dr. Anthony Fauci bobbleheads? Well, mine finally arrived – and he’s pretty cool!

The detail is great! He’s currently hanging out on the non-Orioles and non-Nationals Bobblehead shelf!

Best of the Week: 3/29/2020 – 4/4/2020


The Best of the Week was the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame’s announcement that they would be producing a Dr. Anthony Fauci bobblehead! The Bobble Hall is taking orders now and expect to begin shipping them in July. In addition, they will donate $5 from everyone they sell to the American Hospital Association’s 100 Million Mask Challenge.

Maybe its not quite baseball-related, but it will forever remind me of the 2020 baseball season. He’ll have a special place of honor on my bobblehead shelf, perhaps next to Spider-Manny and Trey Iron-Mancini!

National Bobblehead Day


img_4022National Bobblehead Day was observed earlier this week, on January 7. Many teams and individuals posted pictures of their collections, upcoming giveaways, and other really cool bobbles. There are some pretty impressive bobbles out ther!

Over the holidays I took off a few much-needed days and one of my projects for my time off was to organize my bobblehead shelves to make room for the bobbles I recently acquired. My bobblehead “display case” consists of two Ikea shelving-things that essentially are the size of about eight large crates – four levels of shelves with side-by-side cubicles. So,  in honor of National Bobblehead Day, below is a rundown of my small collection.

Super Heroes – which includes Negro Leaguers, Cal Ripken, and Manny Machado, plus a few others – are on the top of the display shelves:

The next three levels – six cubes in total – are split between the Nationals and the Orioles. Most of these bobbles have come from the Potomac Nationals and Washington Nationals – and the majority of those on superhero level are Orioles, so that bottom Oriole shelf also includes my collection of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing bobbleheads, joining my beloved Trey “Moon” Mancini bobble:

The bottom row includes bobbles from other teams – generally the Yankees – but also including Yasiel Puig, Barry Bonds, Luis Gonzalez, and Hilary Clinton:

There’s definitely still room to grow on the bottom shelves – and I’m looking forward to seeing who I can collect this season!

Who’s in your bobblehead collections?

2020 is here – so what are your baseball plans for the new year? It’s never too early to think about baseball! The 2020 schedules for MLB and MiLB have been out for some time now, and tickets are available for most Spring Training games and the Caribbean Series.

If you still need some help deciding, several teams already have their bobblehead schedules out – check out the list below (I’ll update it later as more teams release their schedules). I might even have to go get me an Akron RubberDucks Urkel bobblehead!

Happy New Year!

Go Nats (bobbleheads)!


Last week an article made the rounds about a Nats fan who has collected every bobblehead given out by the Washington Nationals. Very impressive:

Many folks commented that they have better collections, or even more bobbleheads. Mine may not be better (actually, it is) and I may not have more (but I appear to have more Potomac Nationals bobbleheads), but I’m getting in on the game, too! So, in honor of Game 2 tonight, here are a few pics of my Nationals bobbleheads:
