Paul Allen Bobblehead - Canterbury Park

Sunday the 21st of August is Minnesota Festival of Champions Day at Canterbury Park.  It'll feature 8 races with $600,000 in purse money up for grabs.  Canterbury Park is also giving away a Paul Allen talking bobblehead!  Obviously most of my readers will know what Canterbury Park is and who Paul Allen is.  If you don't, click the links. This will be PA's second Canterbury Park bobblehead.  A unique twist on this one is, its a talking bobblehead.  The first 4000 paid attendees will get the bobble and will be able to hear PA make his legendary call of "AP is Loose!"  You might think the audio is in reference to Vikings stud running back Adrian Peterson, but "AP is Loose" is also the name of a horse at Canterbury Park and is expected to run on August 21st!

I'm sure you'll hear PA make his iconic call this fall, but now you can hear it whenever you want - IF you get the bobblehead!  It's a great bobblehead and I can't wait to add it to my collection!!

Sneak Peek - Reese Gregory Bobblehead Day

Today the St. Cloud Rox are giving away a Reese Gregory bobblehead.  The Rox always do a good job with their bobbleheads.  Last year was their mascot Chisel and the year before that was local sports hero - Eric Decker.  Gregory was picked through a fan vote earlier this year, another solid looking bobblehead!

My newest bobblehead

The blog has taken a bit of a back seat lately...and that might not change for the near future.  My newest bobblehead is that of my baby girl, Anneliese.  Best.  Bobblehead.  Ever.

Torii Hunter Bobblehead Day

The Twins are giving away 10,000 Torii Hunter Hall of Fame bobbleheads today!  Torii is a big time fan favorite and I'm guessing people will be down at Target Field a bit early today.  This one will be especially collectible for a variety of reasons.  Let's start with the obvious - it's Torii.  People love him.  Second, its known as a "wall catch" bobblehead.  Plenty of collectors of subsets in their collection for specific types of bobbleheads, the "wall catch" bobbles fit that subset.  Another subset that some collectors love is a the "hall of fame" aspect.  Even tho its just the Twins Hall of Fame, it's still an HOF and other collectors will want it for this.  A third subset category is the "Gold Glove" touch.  Hunter was a wonderful defensive center fielder and won 9 consecutive Gold Glove awards and several collectors love their "Gold Glove" subset!  Lastly, Torii has been a fan favorite everywhere he's went, so he has plenty of fans outside of Minnesota.  I think the Twins did a really good job with this bobble!

Sneak Peek - Miguel Sano Bobblehead

Here's the second Sano bobblehead of the season, the first was the giveaway the Twins did a few weeks ago.  This one is coming from the Lookouts this Saturday!  This is the 2nd in a series of 3 bobblehead giveaways that Chattanooga is doing this season.  Again, they did a wonderful job on this one, just as they did on the Adam Brett Walker bobble 3 weeks ago.  The first 1000 fans get a bobblehead and this one will be pretty popular!

Sneak Peek - Byron Buxton Bobblehead

On Friday, July 8th, the Cedar Rapids Kernels are giving away a Byron Buxton bobblehead!  Buxton is a hugely popular player and Im sure this will go over quite well in the land of bobblehead collecting! This is the second giveaway bobblehead of Buxton (last year New Britain did one) and its the first of 2 bobbles for Byron this year (Chattanooga is doing one at the end of the month)!  The Kernels always do a great job with their bobbleheads and this one is no different, I love the look of it as its something a bit different, but perfect for Buxton, since he's a defensive stud!  For all of the Midwestern readers, Cedar Rapids isn't too far away!  Get your tickets here for the game!

Ervin Santana Bobblehead

Remember the Twins are giving away an Ervin Santana bobblehead tomorrow!  Even tho the team isn't very good, the bobblehead itself is pretty cool.  Their new "red jersey" looks super sweet.
