The Quest

The Baltimore Orioles have been in town since '54 and have had over 900 men don their uniform. My goal is to obtain a signed card of each player. If you have something I need, or see something you want, don't be shy, we can make a deal.

Baby Shower Schwag

Yesterday Wifey's family held an awesome baby shower for our soon to be addition. Our friends and family went well above and beyond for us. I can't thank them enough for all the stuff we brought home. I had to snag a minivan and put down all the seats just to make everything fit.

We received a lot of sports related toys and clothes but one piece stood out.

1960's Lego Little League Nodder Doll

My mother-in-law insisted it be paced in the baby's room. Too much stuff in there already. So I made room in the cave, right in between my Cal Ripken Bobbleheads.

The cool part about this bobble is that it is made of paper mache. Not plaster or porcelain, hardened paper. There are a few character building chips in the bill of his hat and a small crack, but those merely add to the piece. Oh, it's a coin bank as well. By far the best gift.


  1. That is a gorgeous piece. BTW, congrats on the soon-to-be-addition!

  2. Congrats on the soon to be addition.

    That is one awesome, awesome bobble. I love the older nodders and that one is a thing of beauty.
