Mitch Poole Shares his Bobble Collection

This is just another reason to be envious of Dodgers Clubhouse Manager Mitch Poole.  Not only does he appear to have one of the greatest jobs in the world, but he happens to have a bobblehead collection that is awesome.  Check out the video at the very bottom to see what I mean.

Poole has been collecting bobbleheads for more than 20 years and has a collection of 600 to 700 different ones.  In the video he says that his favorite is a Jaime Jarrin bobble from several years back.  That bobble wasn't given away at a game, and according to Mitch only about 50 copies were made.  Unfortunately, they do not provide a close-up of it.

As you may know, Mitch Poole has been with the Dodgers for more than 25 years, and until now was more known for his amazing artwork he creates for Dodgers' players on milestone mementos like Baseballs and bases.  Tom Hoffarth at Further off the Wall wrote a great piece on his work a few years back that is definitely worth a read.  Check that out here.
