Keith Hernandez bobbles, and the glory of facial hair infused custom bobbleheads

For those Seinfeld lovers out there, there’s a great Seinfeld themed bobblehead night being put on by the Brooklyn Cyclones on July 5. It’s to commemorate the Seinfeld episode with Keith Hernandez, which included the “magic loogie”. For those of you unfamiliar, there’s a story about the night as well as a link to the video clip of Hernandez’s cameo on Seinfeld here.

One thing that has to be said for Hernandez, he has a ‘stache for the ages. For those of you who have loved ones with glorious facial hair, beards and moustaches really do look fantastic on a custom bobblehead.

Ryan Pulock bobbleheads giveaway

Are you a Wheat Kings fan? Then get to Westman Place to get your hands on a Ryan Pulock custom bobblehead. Doors open at 6:30PM, and the giveaway is limited to the first 2,000 fans. This will also be the first of two giveaways this season.

Why Ryan Pulock? Well as a rookie at 16 years old he scored a franchise record-breaking 42 points in 2010-11, and shared the top scorer title with Tim McGauley last year.

Shatner Bobbleheads

Are you a Shatner fan? Or for that matter, a Shatner Star Trek fan? Because at San Diego’s Comic Con this year, William Shatner bobbleheads will be released!

One being his legendary character from Star Trek and another from his stint in an episode of the Twilight Zone. Pretty cool if you ask me…but it gets better! There will be two lunchboxes, yes lunchboxes, made of metal and all. The lunchboxes look just like a good old television set complete with a scene from both shows Shatner starred in. While the lunchboxes are very cool, we do not think they are near as cool as the bobbleheads of William Shatner! Anybody have an extra ticket to San Diego!?

Remember you don’t have to get custom bobbleheads done of yourself or someone you know. You can submit a pic of whoever you want and we will work to make you a bobblehead in the likeness of the picture you submit.

We have even done bobbleheads during the election for Obama and Romeny and used them as part of our contest we ran ‘Vote for the Next President of Bobbletown’. Here is a pic of those dolls:

Yankee Promotional Bobbleheads

The New York Yankees have recently announced that they will be running a three year long promotional bobblehead giveaway games. This is the first time in around a decade since the Yankees have run such a promotion. The giveaway will include 12 limited edition bobbleheads over a three year span, which sounds like will be four per season.

Jeter Bobblehead

The giveaway will be limited to the first 18,000 guests. Ticket packs start at just $88, which as you may know is not too bad for Yankees stadium. The Yankees tout the benefits of these tickets as:

-Access to the special games (not sure how this is different than just going to the game?)
-Preferred seating locations (okay this is nice)
-Savings off the advance ticket price (we don’t really want to know how high the prices are expected to go, but if we had to guess, probably a lot)

Here are the first four limited edition games with player bobbleheads that will be given away:

Monday, 7/8 Derek Jeter
Sunday, 7/28 Hideki Matsui
Friday, 8/30 Yogi Berra
Tuesday, 9/24 Mariano Rivera

20th Anniversary Rockies Bobbleheads!

In order to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a Major League Baseball team, the Colorado Rockies will be distributing 10 bobbleheads of their greatest players, as voted by their fans.  The catch is, only nine will be given out at games, the tenth you will have to purchase in their stores. This can be good or bad; if you like baseball, getting to 9 games shouldn’t be hard but you have to purchase Carlos Gonzalez, the tenth bobblehead. Or if it is tough to get to games, you can purchase only one…the other nine, well, will be difficult to get.
