|Spring Training Exclusive Bobbleheads|
Phillies beat writer, Todd Zolecki tweeted (via @ToddZolecki
) the above picture on Friday (February 22nd) with the caption, "Spring Training bobbleheads, only available at Bright House Field". My initial thought was that this may be a first look at the 2013 Majestic Store "Exclusives", but no word yet from the Phillies. The grouping includes three players, Cole Hamels, Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz and a right-handed batting Phillie Phanatic.
I have not seen any of these pop-up on ebay yet, but if they are truly exclusive to Spring Training, they will definitely be a hot item back North. Post a comment if you have any more information on the exclusives...
I have gathered a little more information from Twitter friends who have been to Clearwater. The bobbleheads are $25 apiece, and do have a "Spring Training" stamp on the base. So, it appears they will be a separate, exclusive release for Spring Training. Word is they are all hand numbered with a production run of 300. Note: The below picture of the bobble's base is from Matthew Scott's Twitter (@DaRock12283
