It’s National Bobblehead Day! Here are 10 weird bobbleheads you can buy on eBay

As you may have heard if you follow enough hokey sports Twitter accounts, Wednesday, Jan. 7, is the inaugural National Bobblehead Day.

According to Forbes, this is an actual thing, sponsored by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and designated by the Registrar of the National Day

In honor of this beautiful holiday, here are the 10 weirdest bobbleheads we could find on eBay that you can totally purchase right now if that’s your sort of thing. We aren’t judging. Look, this cute guy has a gun!

10. Orioles mascot bobblehead

The mascot bobblehead is not weird in itself, but this guy is pretty goofy. He looks more like a duck than a bird and appears about 50 pounds slimmer than he does in the “flesh.”

9. Jack Timber bobblehead

The seller couldn’t remember where he got this one, but it seems it was a giveaway of the Bangor Lumberjacks baseball team.

8. Felipe Lopez bobblehead

Felipe Lopez is a symbolic choice, a stand-in for every totally forgettable baseball player who lucked into a bobblehead some time or another.

7. Lost Dr. Edgar Halliwax bobblehead

We could do a separate post just on TV character bobbleheads, but this semi-obscure “Lost” character will have to do for now.

6. Philly Phanatic phalls down

Help! The Philly Phanatic has phallen and he can’t get up!

5. Chicago Cubs vintage bear bobblehead

This 50-year-old bobblehead costs $250, which feels steep for a chipmunk-looking bear that seems to have its head knocked off-center.

4. Abe Lincoln Milwaukee Admirals bobblehead

Here’s the 16th president of the United States showing his support for his favorite AHL team.

3. A.J. Pollock “Star Wars” bobblehead

There are many “Star Wars” bobbleheads on eBay, and there are many baseball bobbleheads on eBay, but there are significantly fewer bobbleheads of baseball players posing as “Star Wars” characters.

2. Bartolo Colon Buffalo Bisons bobblehead

Before he was a Cy Young winner and a Mets cult hero, Bartolo Colon was a minor league pitcher for the Buffalo Bisons, the Indians’ Triple-A affiliate, back in 1996 and 1997.

1. Milwaukee Brewers chorizo bobblehead

What, you didn’t know the Brewers gave out sausage bobbleheads?
