With the announcement earlier this week of R.A. Dickey and Jose Reyes becoming 2014 Blue Jays bobbleheads, I decide to make a list of the 3rd and possible last bobblehead that could be chosen. This list is in no particular order, but just a few guys I would love to collect as bobbleheads.
1. Joe Carter
For many Joe Carter was the World Series hero of the 1993 World Series with his game winning home run, which is why I think he deserves that moment to be immortalized as a bobblehead.
2. Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler
For me, these guys are like family. I mean I get to hear them during the game, talking about their glory days (most of which are exaggerated or made up), or just interview old players. What I like about them is that they’re always positive and never put down a player when their having a slow period, unlike some other announcer jerks.
3. George Bell
As far as I can remember he was my first Blue Jays hero. The man could hit, and catch in outfield. I know that the Jays did release his bobblehead a few years ago, but it was very limited and released during Spring training, so we’re due for a general release version.
4. Rance Mulliniks
I’ve always thought of Rance as being odd looking in a good way. With his skinny frame and huge glasses this man is a real-life bobblehead.
5. Roy Halladay
One of my favorite Blue Jays of all time is Doc Halladay. He was just such an inspiring player to look up to. He was an amazing pitcher, and extremely altruistic off the field with his children’s charities.
