Collectible of the Week: Larry Shenk Bobble Head

"The Baron", Larry Shenk Bobble Head

Former Public Relations Director, Larry Shenk, known as "The Baron", was honored by the Phillies in 2007.  At a dinner celebrating his 44th year with the team, attendees were presented with this one-of-a-kind keepsake.

The bobble head features Shenk in business casual wear, holding a notebook with his trademark headline, "Newsy Notes" in one hand and a pipe in the other.  The "sponsor nameplate" at his feet reads: Phillies.  Never intended for public consumption, this is a pretty rare find - though, patient collectors will find them on ebay or Craigslist for around $100 from time-to-time.
