Celebrating National Bobblehead Day

Bobblehead Museum at Marlins Park, ca. 2012

Yesterday was National Bobblehead Day, which was celebrated around baseball with entertaining tweets and posts about everything bobble-related. One thing that always comes to mind on National Bobblehead Day is the amazing bobblehead collection that was on display at Marlins Park. With the selling of the team to Derek Jeter and his investment group, 900 of those bobbleheads left with the previous owner Jeffrey Loria. Loria has donated those to the Baseball Hall of Fame. However, 300-400 bobbleheads in the Marlins’ Museum were not part of Loria’s personal collection and will remain on display at Marlins Park.

While its still early for the annual Bobble List, there are a few teams that have released their preliminary promotions schedules, which, of course, include bobbleheads:

Happy Belated Bobblehead Day!
