Okay. I am now officially envious.
Earlier this month, during the Sandy Koufax bobblehead game, I shared that there were two different bobbleheads being given out that day. See that story here. There was the normal one we all knew about and a limited edition version of Sandy in his iconic pose holding 4 Baseballs signifying his 4 no-hitters.
Now, I discovered through an eBay search that there is also a limited edition Vin Scully bobblehead, and I want it bad. See that auction here. At the time of this posting with a little over a day left it is already up to $265.00. A bit too pricey if you ask me.
See photos of the bobble above and below.
As you've noticed. It looks exactly like the normal bobblehead, but has an added twist. See the wires and plastic switch contraption on the back?
Well, this limited edition Vin Scully bobblehead has a recording player that plays Vin Scully call of Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series home run.
I kid you not! This bobblehead talks. The seller helpfully provides a video of the bobblehead in action. Watch it below. It's likely that once the auction is over the video below will disappear so act quick and watch it now.
Notice how the seller touches the Baseball on Vin's right to get it talking. This bobblehead couldn't be cooler.
Here are some more pics of this bobblehead.
BTW, these limited edition bobbleheads are numbered to just 3,000. According to the seller they were available through some special Dodger Stadium ticket package. I am not entirely sure which one the seller speaks of, but I wish I knew the Dodgers were doing this. I would have jumped on it immediately. UPDATE: The Sons of Steve Garvey on twitter sheds some light on the ticket program by providing a link to it. I was completely oblivious to this.
