Surround yourself with a team of yes-men, by taking home this collection of (12) 1960s baseball and football bobbing head figures. Though this distressed dozen has seen better days, all included pieces retain sufficient appeal to be worthy of display. Showing moderate signs of wear, these vintage nodders nevertheless stand proud with generally bold paint and in most cases good gloss levels. Anytime you find this many bobbing heads from the '60s offered as a group, it's a good score and at this low starting point, the (2) different Willie Mays versions are more than worth the price of admission. Condition averages (VG to VG-EX) unless noted, with:


(7) Baseball figures:


1961-1963 Willie Mays white base/light face variety with box, the nicest piece in this lot, shows EX+ details with excellent gloss, has a small chip on the white area of the jersey above the decal lettering


1961-1963 Willie Mays white base/dark face variety, shows general minor wear but no major flaws

1960-1961 Minnesota Twins "boy face" with dark blue base, two cracks are noted behind the left ear and at rear, some surface loss around head opening but front facing view is attractive

1966-1971 Baltimore Orioles "Bird" mascot with gold base, has a repair on the right side of the hat, forward facing view is decent

1966-1971 St. Louis Cardinals "Redbird" mascot with gold base, shows overall moderate wear and head tilts right

1966-1971 Atlanta Braves "Chief Noc-A-Homa" mascot with gold base, high level of gloss but paint has flaked off at various points

c.1950s Cleveland Indians Stanford Pottery statue (the only piece in this lot that is not a bobbing head doll), generally pleasing with brilliant paint and high gloss, but has been repaired at ankles at the adjoining bat

(5) 1968-1970 NFL/AFL "Merger Series" football bobbing head dolls all "boy face" type with gold round bases:

Buffalo Bills, decent VG example 

Dallas Cowboys, a lesser example with extensive helmet cracking
