Bobblehead Of The Day: Vladimir Guerrero

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.

Go Rangers!


  1. This bobble is one of my favorite now too. The Angels did a really nice job on it. Vlad's been one of my favorite non-Orioles since I watched him play for my local AA Harrisburg Senators in the mid 90s. I have a bobble of him from those days too, but it's nowhere near as cool as this one. Thanks again for the trade!

  2. I also say go Texas. I have the Mike Scioscia and Torii Hunter from the same year I think. One of differences between the Angels and Dodgers bobbles are the details. On Scioscia's hat the Angels logo is a sticker not engraved like the dodgers. Also on the very nice Torii Hunter I have on the front of his jersey the angels name is also a sticker. I really like the Diving Torii Hunter bobble its my favorite non-dodger bobble. Also the advertising on the angels bobble to is different. The angels bobbles are nice but the Dodgers seem to add a little more detail. I think the dodgers are one of the only teams not to put the sponsor right on the actual bobble itself.

  3. I love the pine tar!!! Hating that the Rangers beat my Yanks, but have to tip my cap to them. Go Rangers!!!
