This Mickey Mantle Bobble Head sold at auction back in 2005 for $1508.00. It was issued in 1966 and features the Mick with very wide shoulders. It’s known as the “muscles variation” bobble head. There have been thousands of bobble heads issued throughout the years in all sports, and there are many that have been sold for considerably more money than this particular example.
My question is why? What’s the appeal? I’ve never owned a bobble head doll, and have never wanted one. Can someone explain to me the attraction of the bobbing head.
Does anyone over the age of 12 seriously find this type of memorabilia desirable?
Let me know what you think….the good, the bad and the ugly of bobble heads…….enquiring minds want to know.
