Rare Rubio Bobblehead

In March 2014, the Iowa Energy a NBA-D League team (and at the time an affiliate of the Timberwolves) did a Mini Ricky Rubio bobblehead giveaway.  I learned about this giveaway a month or two prior and knew I wouldn't be able to go.  I connected with a couple people who are part of TWolves Army (and seriously, if you don't know anything about them, click their name, simply awesome Wolves fans) as they were putting together a travel bus to go to the Rubio bobblehead giveaway game.  After some time, I made a deal with a member of TWolves Army and the bobblehead would be part of my collection.  It's a mini - so its fairly brittle and isn't made really really well, but a cool bobblehead nonetheless.  It was limited to the first 1000 people, which makes it a pretty hard to come by bobblehead.
