Got a feeling it would be a bunch of modern crap. The term “bobblehead” never existed in the glory days of nodders/bobbing heads.

For my grandkids, the bobble head crap is what the 60’s and 70’s models are to most of us

Here you go Rob... not Catman, a guy in the southwest did these for a while, though no longer I'm told. Had him do the ooo-ribay, later bought the Mays off a friend... seems to me this was an old timers day uni for Willie?

Hey Jimm - I just picked up the one in the middle. It came with some sort of "Note of Authenticity." These things are a bit of a mystery. The maker, Matt Hirsch, used to produce limited numbers (25 for the green base Mays). Then he started doing realistic Mayses that were pretty much knock offs of the original, vintage ones. This latest is kind an amalgamation, although neither the body nor head exactly matches the others. I like them, no matter what the story.

Per John Brey, a big reseller of vintage bobbin' heads and owner of the Nodder Exchange website:

"1960's Bobbing Head dolls were manufactured by Lego, a Swiss firm, and as we all know were put together in Japan. Apparently Lego made an agreement with Sports Specialties of Los Angeles California which gave S.S. the exclusive rights to import and distribute the dolls. Another firm, Bobbie Enterprises,Inc. sold them through mail order."

Default SF Giants weirdo bobbleheads

Hello everyone. I’m new. And recently inherited 3 Kreiss and Co 1960’s SF Weirdo Giants bobblehead/nodders. I have screw ball, crybaby and the angry face. All in excellent condition. I’m looking for more information on how to get the value of them or where to go to sell them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default 1960’s sf Giants weirdos

They are a bit dusty. I’m scared to attempt to clean them when I don’t really know how to properly do it.

Here some of my catman collection.. Might trade for other cool bobble heads etc. I have many more upload later.. If you have questions on catman i know the history well.
Matt Hirsh started making these in the mid 90s.. I actually was the first one to sell a few on ebay in 1997. He actually sold these on ebay from 1999 to around 2005. Matt an artist he hand created his own molds and hand painted them.. So there all kinds of variations. He still makes these in limited quanities. Hope that helps..

These things are getting out of hand....I bought two Mays from Matt in 2000 for $35 apiece....now, certain ebay sellers think they’re worth $1000+.

This worked out great for me because this "short bat" variety was one of the only Giants mini's I was lacking. I got it relatively cheap, due to the damage. My amateur restoration didn't turn out too bad.

WOW Rob! Looks like the work of a master from your pics, great job. I'm tempted to try an old Tigers Bobblehead repair with far less damage than you started with. What type of paint did you use?
