Roy Halladay and the Worst Bobbleheads in History

1 of 6

    As baseball fans, we're all prone to collecting useless trinkets to show our love for our team.  I, for example, always get a pack of New York Yankees baseball cards when I go to my first game of the season.  Ever year since 1996, I have partaken in what has become a tradition.

    However, one fad that I will never understand is that of bobblehead dolls.  These creepy little things are meant to honor star players, but I can't imagine what's so honorable about having a little body accentuated by a giant head that goes up and down on a spring and has ridiculously exaggerated features.

    Still, though ugly, some of these dolls could soon be worth a lot of money.  Take this recent model of Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay.  Think of all that you know about the star pitcher, and then see what's wrong with his bobblehead.

    Thus, in honoring this goof and the scariness that are bobblehead dolls, let's look at five of the worst and scariest in baseball history.

No. 5: Roy Halladay's Phillies Flub

    Here's a note to whoever designs bobbleheads for the Phillies.  Before sending out your work, make sure that you have your facts straight on the players you're designing.  Last I checked, Roy Halladay is a right-handed pitcher, is he not?


No. 4: Pedro Martinez's 80s Nightmare

    This bobblehead is just plain creepy.  First, the crazy eyes and the toothy smile are enough to give me nightmares for the next 10 years.

    Also, why would anyone in their right mind try to sculpt a Jheri-curl haircut??


No. 3: Mark McGwire's Strangely Accurate Likeness

    Whenever buying a McGwire bobblehead, always make sure that you're buying a ceramic styling of the roided-up ex-Cardinals first baseman and not McGwire himself, alright?


No. 2: Brian Wilson's "Fear the Beard" Bobblehead

5 of 6

    Reason number 3,473 to fear Brian Wilson's beard: this weird little trinket may sneak into my bedroom and eat me in my sleep.


No. 1: Reggie Jackson's Cartoonish Face

    I love Reggie Jackson, but I can't show this bobblehead any love.  I mean, come on.  Doesn't he look like he should have his own claymation show that also features The California Raisins?
