New Addition - Reese Gregory

Here's a recent new addition to the collection.  Reese Gregory from the St. Cloud Rox of the Northwoods League.  He's a pretty popular pitcher for the team and from a fan vote was voted the bobblehead this year.  I picked this up a couple weeks ago.  The Rox do some great full size bobbles, and just like last year, this one is one of 360 given away!

Sneak Peek - Bobblelection Day! St Paul Saints

In the latest edition of bobblection bobbleheads the Saint Paul Saints are giving away Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump bobbleheads tonight!  They've done this the past several election years and I'm sure tonight's bobbles will be pretty popular!  Get down to CHS Field early to make sure you get yours!

New Addition - Bill Veeck

I recently saw this bobblehead of Bill Veeck for sale and pulled the trigger pretty fast.  I didn't know much about it, but thought it was a cool bobblehead and it has Minnesota ties - since Bill's son, Mike, is the owner of the Saint Paul Saints.  He was known as quite the promoter and the Saints have followed suit with their ideals and promotion plans.  This bobble was given out a few years ago by the Charleston RiverDogs and not only features a bobblehead, but also a bobble-leg. Click the link above and this one to learn more about Bill Veeck!

New Addition - Ag Star Bobblehead

My latest addition is an Ag Star bobblehead.  I don't know much about it.  Having grown up on a farm, I know plenty about Ag Star but haven't seen much about the bobble.  I'm guessing back in the early 2000s (it just looks like most bobbles did back then) Ag Star produced a small allotment of bobbles for their locations and employees.  Ag Star is headquartered in Mankato, Minnesota.

Sneak Peek - Miguel Sano Sweet Spot Bobblehead

Another sneak peek, this time, it's the bobblehead the Twins are giving to select season ticket holders, commonly known as the "Sweet Spot" bobblehead.  It's definitely a very cool looking bobblehead and I'm pretty sure Success Promotions is behind it - which makes me very very happy!

Sneek Peak - Sylvia Fowles Bobblehead

Back in May I blogged about the Sylvia Fowles bobblehead the Lynx are giving out later this month (August 28th).  I've got a picture of it now and happy to show it off, just like all other recent Lynx bobbles, this is another solid one, and I'm pretty sure its by AGP.  Check it out!

Sneak Peek - Minnesota Wild Mascot Nordy

Here's a quick picture of a new Minnesota mascot coming out.  This is being produced by a fellow collector and I have to say - it looks absolutely awesome.  If you read my blog very often, you'll know I'm a mascot fan.  Hell, if I started collecting bobbleheads today - I'd focus on mascots.  Mascots are some of the best bobbleheads produced!  Introducing Nordy!

Sneak Peek - St. Paul Saints Dan Stoltz Bobblehead

The Saints are giving away this cool bobblehead tonight.  It's the second version of a Dan Stoltz bobblehead the Saints have done (last year they did a King Boreas version - from the Winter Carnival).  Dan is the CEO of Spire Credit Union which has sponsored both bobbleheads.  This year, he's being recognized as the Commodore of the Minneapolis Aquatennial! The detail and craftsmanship on this bobblehead (along with the one from last year) is awesome.  It's a pretty sweet looking bobblehead and I'll have it in my collection soon!

New Addition - Ringo Bobblehead

I've been looking for this one for quite a while.  I new it was out there as a buddy of mine thought he had a deal for a couple of these.  The deal fell thru and I haven't seen one since.  Recently was able to pick this one up.  It's a giveaway bobble from the now defunct Alexandia Beetles of the Northwoods League.  Their mascot, Ringo has a couple different bobbleheads and this one seems to be the most rare (or at least the one I haven't seen much of).  If you are an avid reader of my blog, you'll know I enjoy mascot bobbleheads - because they look like this - super cool, pretty spot on and great detail.

New Addition - Eric Milton

I've been trying to keep up with the blog lately but thats proven to be quite a challenge with a 3 week old!  I've got several new additions ready to be blogged about and am hopeful that I can get them posted over the next couple of weeks. This is the second Eric Milton bobblehead I have - both are minis.  This is a giveaway from the State College Spikes.  Back in 2013, the Spikes honored Milton (a hometown hero) with his own mini bobblehead.  Read more about it here!
