The World Series begins tonight in San Francisco as the Giants take on the Texas Rangers. I'd love to see this Rangers team sweep the series. One of my favorite players on the Rangers is Vladimir Guerrero. He's been one of my favorite players for a while now. He's a beast with the bat, and he'll swing that bat at damn near any pitch.
One of my favorite bobbleheads in my collection is my Anaheim Angels Vladimir Guerrero. I got this back on May 16, 2006. The bobblehead commemorates Vladdy winning the Silver Slugger Award in 2005. Presented by Suzuki, this bobble was made by BD&A Collectibles and was given away to all fans in attendance.
This bobble's got some nice details, from the silver bat Vladdy's swinging to the pine tar stained helmet he's wearing.
I had two of these bobbleheads. Back in July, I traded one of the two to Ryan at The Great Orioles Autograph Project. He sent me a Cal Ripken bobblehead in return. I'd say it was a good trade.
Hopefully, Vlad has a good series. I'll give the pinetar covered helmet a little bobble for good luck.
