Minnesota Twins Bobblehead Sets (Part 2 of 4)

In the 2nd part of this 4 part blog post we look at the 2nd set the Twins and the Twins Community Fund released.  In 2007 the Twins announced the release of a limited edition bobblehead set commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 1987 World Series Championship team.  This set had a production run of 1000 and it sold for $387.  The set had one problem, the Greg Gagne bobblehead depicted the player holding the ball with his left hand and a glove on his right.  Gagne was right-handed, so this was a pretty big issue.  The Twins acted quickly, as they sent out letters to those who bought the set. A replacement Gagne would be mailed out within a couple of months.  Below is the picture of the COA that comes with the set as my set is still in their original boxes.  I see plenty of sets that don't have the replacement Gagne, but most collectors will want a set with both versions.
