Braves Bobbles I'd Like to See

My recent letter to the Atlanta Braves. I'll be sure to post any reply that I receive.
Alan Hearn
Senior Manager of Promotions
Atlanta Braves Baseball Club
755 Hank Aaron Drive
Atlanta, GA

Dear Sir,

As always, I hate to see the season come to a close. Attending games at Turner Field is such a fun experience for my family, and I cannot wait until the gates open at SunTrust Park.

Like many other fans, I always enjoy attending games when Braves bobbleheads are distributed. Two of my favorite bobbleheads are the 'Sid Slid' and the Hank Aaron 715 Home Run bobbleheads. In the future it would be great to commemorate other great moments in Braves history with bobbleheads - perhaps one or two a year. Here are some suggestions:

Aaron Evans Johnson 40 HR teammates
Dusty Baker as a Brave
Lew Burdette Braves HOF
Rick Camp July 4 HR
Skip Carey with voice chip
Tony Cloninger 2 Grand Slam Game
Bobby Dews in chin guards
Brother Francis
Gene Garber ends Rose's hitting streak
Harvey Haddix
Homer the Brave
Bob Horner 4 HR game
David Justice Braves HOF
Rabbit Maranville Braves HOF
Mercker Wohlers Pena combined no-hitter
Phil Niekro Braves HOF
Otis Nixon "The Catch"
Chief Noc-a-homa (though politically incorrect)
Pascual "Perimeter" Perez wearing 285 jacket
Phil the Bucket (sponsored by Home Depot)
Babe Ruth as a Brave (would never happen)
John Schuerholz wearing suspenders
Spahn and Sain and pray for rain
Joe Torre (player/manager dual bobblehead?)
Ted Turner as manager
Bob Uecker (playing the tuba?)
Cecil Upshaw injures finger while dunking
Pete Van Wieren with voice chip

Feel free to contact me to discuss these ideas in detail. If this letter could best be handled by someone else in the Braves organization, please forward it to them.

My family and I are looking forward to spring training and the upcoming 2015 baseball season.

Go Braves!
