Actually I think it is the same company....Alexander Global Productions. At some point, they started creating the "in action" bobbleheads with the legs and skinny arms.

I actually like the bobbleheads from 2002-2003 because they were similar to the classic bobbleheads you sometimes see from the 1950s and 1960s.

That Konerko you mentioned was given away in 2003.

MLB/FOX ruined something good we had going forever, Saturday Night Firework nights. The team always drew well on Saturday nights compared to now Friday night Fireworks.

Speak for yourself, but Mullet Night is one of the best opportunities that most fans have to actually get onto the field.

I marched in the mullet parade in 2010, on one of my last days in Chicago before I moved 1,000 miles away. I only got to step on the warning track, of course, but it was well worth the $5 I spent on a mullet wig.

Agreed although there are plenty of 6:10pm Saturday games with no fireworks so it's not entirely Fox's fault unless the Sox don't want to commit to Saturday fireworks due to Fox being able to change the start time so easily. The promo schedule lists two Saturdays with post game fireworks. The 6:10pm start time with post game fireworks is perfect for families with little kids.

Certainly seems like they should. Probably because the average fan doesn't know much about him - he hasn't played in 63 years. Same could be said for Ted Lyons, Ray Schalk and Eddie Collins, all HOFERs but the priority appears to be 1950's players to recent years. Comiskey is there but obviously for different reasons.

Personally, I like the "newer" bobbleheads with the longer legs and skinnier arms. I'm not much for the classic bobbleheads from back in the day, but that's just my opinion.

I noticed the Ventura in a Mets uniform bobblehead you had in the picture you attached and I don't think that looks like him at all; I think the one the Sox gave away last season looks a lot more like him. How'd you score that bobblehead?

They just added a Billy Pierce replica statue June 29 and a Ron Kittle bobblehead Aug. 10.

Not sure yet about the Kittle doll, but I'll definitely pick up the Pierce statue.

Glad to hear the statue giveaway will be continuing this year!

Agreed - I much prefer the statues to the bobbleheads, I hope they produce a give away statue for all of the monuments at US Cellular Field.

The July 19 game against the Braves says "giveaway and fireworks" presented by Miller Lite. I wouldn't be shocked if that turned into another vendor doll, but I'd hope they'd come up with a better giveaway. How many different ways can you slightly alter a beer vendor doll?

The beer vendor bobblehead thing is beyond stale, but if they continue it, they should have the actual beer vendors compete in some sort of contest and model the bobblehead after the winner.
