Bobblehead of the Day: Eric Gagne (2003)

Click here to purchase
It's been over a month since my last "Bobblehead of the Day" posting. In that time, I've picked up 8 more bobbles, so I've got some catching up to do.

Today we're gonna take a look at Eric Gagne's first Dodgers SGA bobblehead. I showed his 2004 Dodger Stadium bobblehead almost a year ago.

On Friday,May 2, 2003, the Dodgers gave away Eric Gagne bobbleheads away to the first 50,000 fans in attendance. Presented by Albertsons, this bobblehead was made by Alexander Global Inc. This was the first of three bobbleheads given away that season. The other two were Brian Jordan (July 1) and Fred McGriff (September 12).

The Dodgers played the Pittsburgh Pirates that night, and lost 5-3. Eric Gagne did not make an appearance on his bobblehead night.

Let's take a look at Monsieur Gagne:

I love the glasses on Eric Gagne. They're a nice detail on a boring bobblehead.  This now completes another year in bobblehead giveaways, 2003. I'm almost done with the entire collection of Dodger Stadium SGA's.


  1. The glasses are cool. They also slimmed him down. Haha.

  2. Arno - That's true. And the hat doesn't have all the calcium build up either.

  3. I still need that one! but can't wait for the one of Donnie, that looks like a classic already!

  4. I agree with Dutch Dodger, the Mattingly bobblehead looks very cool. I wish Gagne's cap had the calcium build up, it would've been a nice touch.

  5. They forgot all the riod build up too. This looks totally different from the more recent ones. I just started collecting and liking these bobbleheads since 2009 season. What changed? Why do they look so much cleaner now?

  6. Does he have a bronze version
