Complete List Of All Dodger Stadium Bobblehead Giveaways


I've finally put a list together of all the Dodger Stadium bobblehead giveaways. This is something I should've done a long time ago. One of the most common questions I get asked is if I have a list of all the Dodger bobbleheads. There are a few reasons why I waited so long to put the list together, but the main reason is that I wanted to get as many posts written so there would be something to link to.

The list is in the blog's sidebar. I've put all 33 SGA's in chronological order, beginning with Tommy Lasorda on April 4, 2001 and ending with Matt Kemp on August 17, 2010.  I will continue to add to the list as the Dodgers give more away.

For now, I've only listed the name of the bobblehead and the date in which it was given away. I'll probably add more detail in the future, possibly with head shots or pictures of the entire doll. If you click on any of the listed names, it will take you to a "Bobblehead of the Day" post or a post from that bobblehead's game. Only three bobbleheads are missing links. Those three I have yet to do a posting on, but I will soon.

Here's the entire list:

  1. Joe Biemel got a bobblehead? Seriously?

  2. Cubsfan - I know, huh? That was the "fans choice" that year. Beimel's parents led the campaign to get this bobblehead made. They helped get 20,000 votes for their son. From what I've been told, he only had about 5,000 votes before his parents got involved.

  3. Thanks for putting together the list! I think I have 9 of them

  4. Truetothebloue - No problem. I hope this helps everyone. Nine is good. I keep hearing from people who only have 2 or 3 or 4.

  5. I notice that they don't do the "Fans Choice" anymore. I wonder if the Beimel thing had anything to do with that. Other than the cartoony looking first year ones I am only missin about 3 of them. That may go up this year.I only plan on going to 2 or 3 of the bobblehead nights. Thanks for posting that. Interesting.

  6. Thank you so much (again) for putting this together! It looks like I have 20 of them. Now it's time to hunt for the missing ones! :)

  7. Bruce - Those three cartoonish ones are my least favorite,although Gibson is one of them, and that is like the holy grail in Dodger bobbleheads(in my opinion).


    Joe - No problem. Good luck with the rest!

  8. nice! the definitive list (fot now). Great to have all the links in one place. I've seen the Gibson nodder, why is it the holy grail? Because it's Gibby or are there not very many made? Anyway, good blog to inspire me to be ready for this seasons b-heads!

  9. Dutch - In my opinion, because of the legend surrounding Gibson. It's a tough one to find now too.

  10. check! so all of the above! :) should make that Hershiser one, but I'm looking forward to Ethier (man, that thing will be popular because of the streak), Mattingly and Kershaw. Gonna be a good SGA year.

  11. Dutch - I still don't know why they haven't made Hershiser yet.

  18. How much would the entire sga set be worth...including a mcgriff gold bat, a pitch and stitch bobblehead and the cey one autographed.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The 2012 additions are excellent. Vin Scully & Sandy Koufax. The Dodgers are treating those tickets just like opening day. Can only get in a mini package. I have all 33 so far. Autographed ones I have are, Lasorda, Newcombe, Gagne, Laduca and Garvey. I would value each at around $20ish. The Manny's use to be higher but not so sure now. The Lasorda (the very 1st one given away by the Dodgers was selling for $150 until they gave away more on his Birthday that same year. Only 27,000 came the first night. Then people saw how these resembled the players. I've seen some other teams bobbleheads & I think the Dodger versions are the best. My Opinion.

  21. Thanks for posting this list. I am only missing 3 from the entire collection including this years.

  22. Awesome list! I have 4/4/2001 through 5/20/2009, except the Lasorda HOF. I guess that's 26 different figures but because of multiples I count 49. I was digging through my collection of bobbles, blankets and metal lunch boxes. I couldn't remember how long I'd been collecting, so thanks for your post!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just set up my collection and have all of them. One thing I notice was that there is three different boxes for the Shawn Green bobblehead. Anyone know why?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have the whole sga collection including fred mcgriff gold bat, izturis gold glove, kemp gold glove, ethier silver slugger, stitch n pitch, ron cey bobblehead autographed, stadium replica, ceramic ticket, kershaw cy young, lasorda HOF plaque, coliseum limited poster, robinson figurine, koufax figurine, and a few other items...what kind of price would you put on it...although to me its priceless!!!

  25. I have most from 2007-present but only a couple from before that. This list helped me figure out what I need to complete my set. I'm finding some decent deals on eBay right now ($20 for Newcombe w/ free shipping).

  26. This is a list of the Dodger Bobblehead Giveaways. However, what is the History of Dodger Bobbleheads that were ever made. Including ones sold before they were givenaway. I saw a Sandy Kofax Bobblehead that was being represented as being from the 1960's which I doubt. Where there Bobbleheads that were made and sold long before 2001?
