Bobblehead Of The Day: Shawn Green

Click here to purchase
Today's Bobblehead of the Day is Shawn Green. I think my favorite memory of Shawn Green was his four homerun game on May 23, 2002. Green hit four home runs in one game against the Brewers. He also set the record for most total bases in one game, 19,after going 6 for 6, with a single and double to go with his four home runs. I'll never forget that game. It was a day game,and I had to listen to it on the radio at work. The whole time I wished I was at home watching.

Green retired in 2008, finishing his career with 328 homeruns and 1070 rbi. You can see all of Green's stats here.

On Thursday, July 18, 2002, the Dodgers gave away Shawn Green bobbleheads to the first 50,000 fans in attendance. Presented by Albertsons Supermarket, this bobblehead was made by BD&A. This was the second of three bobbleheads given away that year. The other two were Paul LoDuca(5/31) and Hideo Nomo(8/24).

The Dodgers played the San Diego Padres that day and lost 4-1. Andy Ashby started for the Dodgers, Brett Tomko for the Padres. Brett Tomko got the win(yes, he did win games). Shawn Green went 0 for 3 with a walk on his bobblehead day.

Here's the nodder:

This is another one of those BD&A bobbles with the giant clown feet. I don't understand why they gave the bobble this feature. I do think they did a great job of making this look like Shawn though. The facial features are pretty similar to the real Green.

That's it for the 2002 bobbleheads. I'm almost done with displaying the entire SGA collection. I can't wait to start getting some of those 2011 bobbles.


  1. Dispite the big feet, I think it's a great looking bobble.

    Do you have them displayed?

  2. yankeesjetsfan - I think it's pretty nice bobble too.

    Right now, I have them displayed under my television in the living room. I am getting two vintage bookcases today as a matter of fact. I'm going to stain them and change the knobs on them. It's going to be a little project of mine. I will show the before and after shots in a post soon.

  3. Can't wait to see them. I want to buy a couple of barrister bookcases for mine, but they are expensive and hard to find.
