May 2019 Bobbleheads

Please enjoy my May 2019 list of bobbleheads SGAs and other interesting major and minor league giveaways. As always, this list is far from comprehensive. In fact please let me know what I’ve left off. Also: are all these photos I’m adding a good thing, or do they take too much away from the list?
Answer me this: is the Reds Hall of Fame giving away a bobblehead of the month this year, as they have in years past?
Lots of complaints about Gwinnett giving away the same bobbles the Braves are giving away this year. Give them a break. The Stripers were without a general manager during the key bobblehead planning months last fall. When the new promotions-minded GM came on board after New Year’s he may not have had time to special order a series of unique bobbles. Hopefully next year will be better, but darn it remember free bobbleheads are a gift – not a right like universal health care, cell phones, and free college education.     
It’s amazing to me how many bobbles are given away each month.  You wonder when bobbles will peak, yet every year there are more and more. The advent of the special ticket giveaway is a double-edged sword: the bobble is guaranteed but at a premium price. Is this better or worse? Discuss!
