New Goldy Bobblehead

The fine people at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame are producing the newest Goldy Gopher Bobblehead!  I can't wait to add this one to my collection.  Most readers know I'm not a huge fan of Forever Collectible bobbles (I just like other looks better) but this will be an FC bobblehead.  They'll ship later this summer and of course Goldy is in a boat.  Ever since PJ Fleck was announced as the Gopher football coach, RTB (Row the Boat) has been everywhere.  It's always, Row the Boat, Ski-U-Mah.  And I love it.

New Addition - Coco & Kelly Miller Dual Bobblehead

Here's another new addition that has Minnesota roots.  Coco & Kelly Miller from the University of Georgia.  This was a recent giveaway of the former Rochester Mayo standout Twins.  Pretty sweet bobble, and as you may have guessed - produced by Success Promotions.

New Addition - Nino Niederreiter

Here's another new addition of mine!  Nino Niederreiter from the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL.  This is a mini bobble, but a damn nice one.  And from what I know, Nino's only SGA bobblehead.  Usually when it comes to these minor league bobbles, they are hard to find because of the limited release (guessing this one was limited to 500).

New Addition - Sysco Minnesota

Here's another recent addition thanks to my buddy Chris.  Sysco Minnesota Chef.  He found it at a thrift store and since it says Minnesota on the base, it was perfect for my collection.  I don't know anything about about it, but happy its mine!

Team USA Bobbles - Seimone Augustus & Sylvia Fowles

Yesterday I blogged about the Seimone Augustus bobblehead I recently added to my collection.  It's "twin" is a Sylvia Fowles bobble that LSU also gave away recently.  These are super cool bobbles, of course done by my favorite - Success Promotions.  The detail is great, the red jerseys pop as do the gold medals!

Now, time to get on the Lynx to do a Quad set of Seimone Augustus, Lindsay Whalen, Maya Moore and Sylvia Fowles.  Would be cool if they did Team USA jerseys on the front (with gold medals) and their Lynx jerseys on the back.  Fans would absolutely love that type of bobblehead!

New Addition - Seimone Augustus Team USA

One of my newest additions is Seimone Augustus sporting her Team USA jersey (as well as Olympic Gold Medals) that her alma mater, LSU gave out recently.  This was super hard to track down, but due to some extremely good fortune, I was able to add it to my collection.  Freaking awesome!

New Addition - Guy - Mortenson Construction

This is "Guy Savingston" a Mortenson Construction bobblehead that was given to employees when signing up for their 401(k) plan.  These are the bobbles I love, random finds that have everything to do with Minnesota, like Mortenson does!

New Addition - Earl (St. Cloud River Bats)

Another new addition of mine is the St Cloud River Bats mascot, Earl!  Earl has several different bobbleheads.  The River Bats were a part of the Northwoods League and are now called the St Cloud Rox.  This happens to be a retail version (there was an SGA version that looked very similar instead of "Earl" on the base it included the sponsors logo).  This is the black jersey version and there is also a white jersey variation (both with Earl on the base as well as an SGA version).
