New Add - Minnesota North Stars Retro

I hadn't seen this one before I stumbled across it.  Obviously its a retail version as several of these "retro" or "vintage" bobbleheads have been produced the last several years.  From what I know, its only the 2nd North Stars bobblehead.  The first is JP Parise, click the link for more.  It's a perfect fit for my collection and I certainly wish the Wild would do some sort of North Stars celebration of former fan favorites who wore the sweater!  For now, I'll settle for these 2!

New Add - Ringo

Here's another new addition to my collection.  Ringo from the now defunct, Alexandria Beetles (of the Northwoods League).  There are 2 versions of this one, I believe this is the retail version the club sold, while the other version, although almost exactly the same has 1 slight difference.  Instead of saying "Ringo" on the base, it displays the sponsors name.  I had been searching for this one a long time.  I honestly didn't think it would take me this long to find it.  Typically the retail versions are quite a bit easier to find because there are more of them.  Either way, I'm definitely happy to add this one!

New Addition - Alex Stalock - Iowa Wild

A couple weeks ago the Iowa Wild did their second giveaway of the season (read about the first one here).  This time around, its of local netminder Alex Stalock.  I'm a huge fan of goaltender bobbleheads, mainly because of the detail that goes into them.  This is an absolute...ahem...breakaway (see what I did there?!)!  From the form, to the sweater, and obviously the mask (which is removable) the marketing team nailed it.

New Add - Gustav Oloffson - Iowa Wild

Back in January the Iowa Wild gave away Gustav Oloffson bobbleheads to the first 1000 fans through the gates.  These aren't regular sized bobbles but aren't minis either, they are a nice in between that a ton of minor league or affiliated teams do.  Even tho they are smaller, there is plenty of detail and that red sweater is sure to stand out!

Sneak Peek - Byron Buxton Fort Myers Miracle (5th of 5)

The final bobblehead in this set of 5 is Twins stud center fielder, Byron Buxton.  Mark your calendars for September 1st!  Of course Buxton is making a jumping catch, showing off his gold glove caliber skills.  This completes the Fort Myers set in 2018 and I have a feeling Twins fans everywhere will love it!
