Baseball On My Brain

The Power of the Bobble

Even though they’ve been around for almost a century, it still amazes me how much power the bobblehead has to draw people to the ballpark.

Once again the Mariners had a bobblehead night yesterday – and once again there were crowds of people lined up at the gates well before they opened. And once again there are lots of listings for those bobbleheads on eBay. And once again I saw people walking back to their cars with multiple bobbleheads, seemingly hoarding these little statues for some reason beyond me.

Would someone please explain what you do with these bobbleheads? Why the fascination? Why the obsession?

Do you sell them, hoping to make a little bit of money? Do you give them to sick children in hospitals, bringing a bit of sunshine to someone who couldn’t go to a ballgame? Or do you just like them sitting on your desk or on a shelf?

I’m sure there are a multitude of answers – and I want to know what they are. Tell me why you are so fascinated – or not so fascinated – by the bobblehead.
