Sneak Peek - Jackie Mitchell Bobblehead

The Lookouts have done it again!  Another awesome bobblehead, this year, they are giving away a Jackie Mitchell bobblehead this Saturday!  Get your tickets here!  To learn more about Jackie Mitchell, click her name.  AGP produced this bobble and as you know, I'm a fan of theirs, so I'm sure the bobble will be nice and solid!

New Addition - Rocky

Here's another recent addition.  Rocky from the New Britain Rock Cats, former Twins affiliate.  If you have read my blog for a while, you'll know that a lot of minor league teams did 2 versions of the same bobblehead.  The first is the giveaway version (which this is) and the second is the retail version. Typically the only difference is the addition of a sponsor plaque.  I've had the retail version of this one for a while, but recently was able to add the SGA version to the collection!

New Addition - Rocket Raccoon

One of the newest of new additions to my collection.  I've blogged about this one a couple times. The Twins (along with a handful of other MLB teams) gave away Rocket Raccoon bobbleheads last Saturday.  The new Guardians of the Galaxy movie dropped last weekend and the Twins (and Marvel) celebrated that with this Guardians of the Galaxy themed bobble.  It does have a nice sturdy base but wouldn't be surprised if we hear about some breakage with his tiny little ankles.

New Addition - Cooper from USF

Another new addition of mine is Cooper the Cougar, mascot of the University of Sioux Falls.  I really don't know much about it, but since it's a mascot and local, it's staying in my collection!

Sneak Peek - Ron Shelton Bobblehead

Here's another one from the Rochester Red Wings, Ron Shelton.  Shelton played for the Red Wings back in the late 60s.  Of course he's famous for being a movie director and writer - most notably, Bull Durham & Tin Cup.  They did a pretty cool bobble - the baseball player on one side and the movie producer on the other.  I love the creativity that minor league clubs like the Red Wings come up with.  Get your tickets here!

Sneak Peek - Byron Buxton Bobblehead

Here's a sneak peek at the Buxton bobblehead that the Rochester Red Wings are giving away on September 3rd this season!  I'm sure this will be a popular bobble as Buxton is still a favorite in Twins land.  Click here to buy tickets!!

New Addition - Crash Bobblehead

Been a little busy lately (a 9 month old does that) so I haven't had a chance to share some of my recent additions.  Here's Crash, the mascot from the Iowa Wild.  I've been waiting for them to do one for a few seasons.  I had a tease about a year ago that it was most likely going to happen during the 2016-17 season.  It's a great looking bobble!

Bud Grant Bobblehead

After years of discussion and negotiation, Bud Grant will have a bobblehead.  This is the second Bud Grant bobble, but this is the first one that will be produced for the retail market.  Check out this link for more information on the first one!  Grant will sell this bobblehead at his annual garage sale in a couple weeks.  The detail is quite remarkable and Im sure it'll be a fan favorite!  Obviously it has Vikings purple and gold, along with his dog Boom.
