The greatest bobblehead in Dodgers history

The GOAT

Over the last few months, I’ve ranked the 10 greatest bobbleheads the Dodgers have ever given away at Dodger Stadium. Links to all of them will be at the bottom of this article.

As a bobblehead collector, all great things must come to an end, so we’ve reached the final ranking of this series. For the No. 1 spot, it goes to none other than former Dodgers broadcaster, Vin Scully. The Dodgers gave this away on August 30, 2012, as it was the first time the team had honored their broadcaster with a bobblehead.

In regards to being unique, it’s one of a kind. The detail with this bobblehead was great. They did a great job with Scully, and overall everything looks amazing. I love that they have him sitting at a desk wearing a suit and holding his microphone. He’s got a scorebook and notes on the desk, very fitting.

Also, it’s tough to tell, but if you own this bobblehead you already know. This is the heaviest bobblehead the Dodgers have done. When you pick it up, you can tell it’s good quality.

Very fittingly, there was a rainbow over Dodger Stadium the night they gave this away. Being at the stadium for that game, what a night it was.

That wraps up the list. Thank you so much to everyone who tuned in, hope you enjoyed it! As I mentioned, here are all the other bobbleheads from this series in case you haven’t checked them out yet.
