Minnesota Twins SGA Bobblehead Set (Part 7 - Year 2006)

In 2006 the Twins released 4 bobbleheads.  Torii Hunter, Brad Radke, Billy Martin, and Jack Morris. The interesting thing about this set is Torii is depicted with his Gold Glove award.  The problem with that...apparently when these were shipping, many were damaged in the process.  Because of that, the Twins exchanged damaged Hunters for new ones.  The difference with the new ones, the Gold Glove award is magnetic (along with his hands).  Therefore the award was not attached to the bobblehead during shipping.  The other problem I've seen with this Torii bobblehead...no matter if its the original or the replacement, unfortunately many of the gold glove awards have been lost and/or damaged.
