Friar Friday Merch #37

I've stated before that I'm not a fan of bobbleheads. They don't do anything for me. They sit on a shelf and collect dust. Perhaps the Padres have turned the corner and finally agree with me on the subject. The padres have had their only bobblehead giveaway this year. Instead of bobbleheads, they are going to give away cool things like.....golf towels? ugh. There are 5 Saturdays (including one this week) where ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is being given away. It's infuriating. Even a bobblehead is better than nothing at all.

I like how this came in a nice glossy box. Each side of the box lists a different 2012 Chase Headley accomplishment/award. The lid doesn't like to stay down though.

They did an okay job on the face, it sort of looks like him. I imagine beards are tough to do, but they did an okay job. There seems to be some sort of mold or painting error on the jersey though.

The silver bat is a removable piece. So far I haven't had any problems with it falling out without glue. The pose of the bobblehead looks more like a bunt than a hit to me, but I'm pretty sure that's just me.

The logo sponsor and player name are strangely not displayed on the side of the bobblehead that I would likely position for display. Sponsor logo (Fox Sports San Diego) is decently unobtrusive.
