With all of the hype and hoopla over the Hall of Fame voting the past two or three weeks and with the Dodgers PR Department holding an on-line Twitter poll on who Dodger fans want as their ‘People’s Choice’ promotional bobblehead for the upcoming 2014 season, how on earth did we not put these two things together?
I mean, if ever there were a perfect fit it would be a Greg Maddux in a Dodgers uniform bobblehead which, as luck would have it, would come out within weeks (June 26 to be exact) of the newly elected Hall of Famer’s induction into the sacred Halls of Cooperstown.
I’m not sure if others came up with this suggestion but with the voting down to its final two days, it may me too late for Greg Maddux to surpass favorites A.J. Ellis or Brian Wilson in the voting, but let’s be real here – are A.J. Ellis and Brian Wilson future Hall of Famers?
A Greg Maddux Dodger bobblehead in the same year that he is enshrined into the National Baseball Hall of Fame would be a tremendously valuable collector’s item and one of the most coveted Dodger bobbleheads of all time – Vin Scully notwithstanding.
By the way, if this Greg Maddux in a Dodgers uniform bobblehead thing ever comes to fruition, Ken Gurnick does not get one.
