More Braves Bobbles We'd Like to See

As the Braves bobblehead season comes to a close, I’ve updated my list of Braves bobbleheads I’d like to see. The 2016 season wasn’t too bad, and hopefully the team can keep it up next year. Some of these players and events are from so long ago that many current fans may be unfamiliar with them.

Have any other suggestions?

Milwaukee Braves Hank Aaron MVP 30 HR 30 SB BH
Hank Aaron Tommie Aaron brothers with the most homers double BH
Usher Walter Banks BH
Young Dusty Baker BH
Braves 40 HR triple BH: Aaron / Davy Johnson / Darrel Evans

Rico Carty 1972 ASG write-in starter BH (w/ wallet in back pocket)
Tony Cloninger 2 Grand Slam 9 RBI game pitching/hitting double BH

Bullpen catcher Bobby Dews BH (w/ shin guards)

A series of pitching coach gnomes or nesting dolls: Leo Mazzone, Roger McDowell, Bob Gibson, Satchel Paige. Or the Home Depot Tool Race tools.

The Braves need a bobblehead display somewhere in their new stadium.
Other suggestions for 2017 stadium promotions: Dansby Swanson jersey T-shirt, Dansby Swanson posters, win-a-date with Dansby, and Dansby Swanson stick-on sideburns. For Star Wars night Dansby can die his hair light brown to match his Dansby / teen Annikan Skywalker Star Wars bobblehead. I wouldn’t be surprised if there weren’t eighty-one Dansby promotions next year. You heard it here first.
The zombie bobblehead needs to be a player known for botching plays. BJ Upton would’ve been a natural.
