Malik Sealy Bobblehead

One of my recent additions is a Malik Sealy bobblehead.  This was a giveaway, kind of (more on that later) from St. Johns University where he played collegiate basketball.  If you weren't aware, Sealy played for the Wolves before he tragically died in a car accident in 2000.  Read more about Sealy at his Wikipedia page.

So about the giveaway.  It was scheduled to be a game giveaway on February 21st.  However they weren't shipped  in time for the game.  This brought one huge issue - how were they supposed to still give them to the fans that were in attendance on the night of the 21st?  St Johns decided to have fans stop by the ticket office and use their game ticket to redeem a bobblehead.  I was able to connect with a guy that had tons of Sealy bobblehead night tickets.  He figured he'd ask people for their tickets as they were leaving the game - knowing full well that plenty of fans didn't care for the bobblehead in the first place!
