September Bobbles

As the calendar turns to September, another great year of bobblehead giveaways come to a close. Will next year be even better? Or are major and minor league teams discovering bobbleheads aren’t worth the cost?
Will more teams make bobbleheads a special ticket only? Would that be a good or bad thing? This year the Braves moved Star Wars from special ticket to SGA, then added a Sandlot bobble as a special ticket.
Will it be a long winter without bobbles? The good news is more NBA, NHL, and even some colleges have joined the bobblehead sensation. Both the Charlotte Hornets and San Jose Sharks have joined the fun.
Any ideas for 2019? What will be the newest craze? In October I promise to publish the definitive list of bobbles the Braves and Stripers need to give away.
