Finally, I received my 1991 Twins bobblehead set, which I ordered back in August. This set came in two separate boxes.
These bobbleheads feel much lighter than most other bobbleheads. Maybe there's more plastic in them? A different type of material? The paint job is as sloppy as ever, but the likenesses of the players are better than most. This set also has a wider variety of poses, which is nice. Some of the pitchers are on a brown base, rather than the typical green.
Surprisingly, I only had a couple with any type of damage. The small plaque on the Jack Morris figure was glue face-down, and prying it up left some of the white of the plaque stuck to the base. I'm not sure if I'll try to get a replacement or not. One of the heads also came off one of the bobbleheads as I was putting it away. This is pretty common. I'll just glue it back on. The same thing had happened to my Sal Butera bobblehead from the 1987 set. When I sent it in to a signing, I just mailed the head rather than the whole body, and glued it back on after I got it back.
There is a 1986 Mets reunion coming up in a couple of weeks. I am trying to arrange a deal with an SCN contact to take my Terry Leach and Rick Aguilera bobbleheads to get signed. I'm hoping I can get 4 or 5 of them signed at TwinsFest next January as well. Tom Kelly, Kent Hrbek, Kevin Tapani and Al Newman should be pretty easy.
