2018 Bobbles I'd Like to See

Bobbleheads I'd like to see the Braves and their minor league affiliates put out next year. As a bonus I've added the Georgia Bulldogs, since they give out bobbleheads as well.
Since I'm an old guy I'd like to see more of the older players memorialized. next year would be the perfect time to do this, with the team still rebuilding and calling up younger players. The team has given Hank Aaron plenty of love, and rightfully so. I'd like to see bobbleheads of Phil Niekro, Bob Horner, Joe Torre, Rick Camp, and other former legends.
Several addicts would like to see another Ender Inciarte wall catch bobble. Since one was just given out in May, it's highly unlikely the Braves will come back next season with a similar bobble. Have they ever done the same player two straight years? Maybe a legend like Chipper or Hank. Look for the next Inciarte to be hitting in his next bobble, perhaps to commemorate his 200 hit season.
