Top Ten Bobbleheads Acquired:
Kent Hrbek/Ron Gant (MinnesotaTwins/Atlanta Braves)
Classic bobblehead reenactment of the 1991 World Series. I actually camped out for this.
Trevor Plouffe (Rochester Red Wings)
While I couldn’t be there for the game, I was able to use the internet to help me acquire this beauty.
Robin Ventura (Chicago White Sox)
Another instance where I couldn’t attend the game. Thanks, Al Gore!
Phil Hughes (Minnesota Twins)
No longer needing to camp out, I bit the bullet and bought the special ticket needed to acquire this bobblehead… and also attended the game where I also caught a few balls.
Harmon Killebrew (Minnesota Twins)
I won tickets for this game (thanks, ticket rep!), got to the gates just in time for a bobblehead (thanks, people who didn’t realize one gate line was open), and even snagged a few balls barehanded. But I left early in the game in order to get back home to my family.
Paul Molitor (Minnesota Twins)
Unknowingly, I attended a bobblehead game at the Dome. Apparently my gate was the last one with a bobblehead. Many people were jealous I snagged one and managed to get there just before first pitch (and didn’t have to camp out).
Justin Morneau/Joe Mauer (Minnesota Twins)
I do not remember getting this, but it’s still fun to have 2 players on one figurine.
Joe Mauer (Minnesota Twins)
I won this from my ticket rep and picked it up in the offseason.
Justin Morneau (Minnesota Twins)
This was a season ticket holder give away. I showed my card and got a bobblehead in centerfield.
Evan Gattis (Houston Astros)
My lone trek to Houston led to 9 baseballs, a new stadium viewed, a record store visited, and a new bobblehead in my collection.
