Default Let's See Those Bobblehead Collections!

I love bobbleheads. I am a collector of Yankees bobbles as well as of the Jets, Knicks, Islanders, Super Heroes, celebrities and anything else that catches my eye.

I will admit that my collection is modern. I only have one vintage nodder; a 1968 Lil' Dribbler NY Knicks bobble. I would absolutely love to see collections of other bobblehead collectors. Show off your collections here, vintage or modern. Doesn't matter to me.

Mike

Took a couple more pics of the other side of my hobby room. Sorry to say I'm the world's worst photographer.

commishbob,

Really great looking collection. I’m a fan of all things Orioles as well as a “Baltimore” Colts fan. I haven’t picked up any of the modern bobbing heads, but possibly will one day; at least the ones that catch my eye. Ultimately like to get all of the plastic figures from the statue unveiling’s; I do have the Brooks from the event.

Thanks Mark. I'm in a never-ending quest for all things BALTIMORE Colts! I've got lots of things to post but I'm still trying to figure out where to do it among the various subforums here. I finished off a complete run of regular B-Colts cards and found a lot of oddball stuff as well. I've blogged much of it.

Awesome collections Greg & Ron. Love the set up Greg and I spied a vintage Batman lunch box in there as well.

Thanks Mike,

Good eye, I'm surprised you saw that in my crappy phone pic.

I'm trying to figure out how to display my baseball and superhero collections in the same room

Here are some of my Dodgers bobbleheads.

The minis have so many variations of head styles that I'll be able to add to my collection slowly over time. For example, they come with hair parted to left, hair parted to right, moon face, smiling with a closed mouth or showing teeth. They also have them holding a short bat, long bat or a glove and ball.

I also posted pictures of a variety of the square base Dodgers and some other miscellaneous ones as well.

I regret not buying one of the weirdo nodders that Bob was selling (I think about a year ago).

ggary, I love those vintage bobbles. I always wished the Yankees has as many variations as other teams, like the Dodgers did.

I have never seen a Dodger bobble with the LA separated on the cap and Dodgers in red script. How rare is that bobble?

Mike

As much as I hate the D**gers, those are some great nodders! The Giants minis come in the same variations. You forgot to mention “eyes left” or “eyes right.” The Giants have that variation in the normal size but I haven’t seen it in the minis. Some Giants minis also don’t have painted sleeves.

The guy between the orange wood base and the Buddy Flex...what’s he made out of?

Did you see the screwball Dodger on eBay, a few weeks back?

YankeesJetsFan, that is a wedge base nodder. According to the nodderpriceguide it is rated as an 8 out of 10 to find difficulty (or a little harder to find the Werdo screwball [7 out of 10 difficulty]).

ooo-ribay, thanks, the red base nodder is made of rubber. It looks very similar to the Buddy Flex but, besides their bases, they are not exactly the same. Also, I did see the screwball on ebay but the one I have is in better condition.

Thanks ggary.

Which nodder price guide do you refer to? I use Warman's Field guide. I am looking into picking up Tim Hunter's Bobbing Head Dolls book soon. I'm always looking for books or price guides to refer to in my collecting adventures.

Thanks,

Mike

It's weird, Gary....1/4 of you D**ger minis are looking the "wrong" way....I have never seen a Giants mini looking anything but left. Also, notice two of mine do not have the painted sleeves.

YankeesJetsFan - I used the nodderpriceguide.com for relative rarity.

ooo-ribay - The eyes looking the opposite way seems to be common with the moon face with the swirl hair. If you look at Bob Freedman's photo again you can notice that his is also looking the "wrong" way.

I'm digging these Catman nodders. Here's another Mays variant:

Hey Jimm - I just picked up the one in the middle. It came with some sort of "Note of Authenticity." These things are a bit of a mystery. The maker, Matt Hirsch, used to produce limited numbers (25 for the green base Mays). Then he started doing realistic Mayses that were pretty much knock offs of the original, vintage ones. This latest is kind an amalgamation, although neither the body nor head exactly matches the others. I like them, no matter what the story.

Here you go Rob... not Catman, a guy in the southwest did these for a while, though no longer I'm told. Had him do the ooo-ribay, later bought the Mays off a friend... seems to me this was an old timers day uni for Willie?
